Sometimes when nobody is around I'll just cook a can of corn or peas by punching the top of the can with a can opener and then setting it on the stove. After the water starts to boil out, pick up the can with the can opener drain it out, cut the top the rest of the way off, slather it with butter and salt and eat. Easy clean up that way.

Sometimes I'll make a big batch of whipped potatoes but it has to be made from fresh potatoes, not a box of instant potatoes. Then the slather it with salt and butter routine again.

Generally, whenever I'm baking bread there will be an extra loaf made for instant consumption. Guaranteed one loaf will not ever get completely cooled off. More slathering with butter but then honey is added, too. Or sometimes peanut butter melted into fresh bread with a bit of honey on top.

This was a neat thread so I decided to "revive" it.
Hmm, I am definitely a peanut butter lover also and spoonfuls of it do come regularly.
Now, for the "home alone" stuff....generally I like sauces....little tastes of certain sauces...it's kinda weird....the biggest is definitely peanut butter though. Oh and I do love frosting too, but we never have it here.

Default when no one is around foods

peanut butter on a good hunk of toast, with chocolate chips. if you are fast, the heat from the toast will melt the chips. i have not had a day yet that this will not fix.

Default Poverty Slop

If things are tuff and i don't feel like foolin' around with anything involved, I whip up a little batch of bacon grease gravy and slather it on some plain white bread. Instant comfort. (We almost always had some type of gravy on the table growing up and I think it is more the connection to those simpler, less stressful times that really gives the comfort) Awwwhhh and nobody knowa it but me.

A big bag of plain potato chips with half a bottle of hot sauce poured onto them. Then I dip them in ranch dressing.

I sometimes serve this with a hot link, split down the center, and served on white bread with hot sauce, mustard, and a couple slices of tomato.

Talk about gourmet eating!
