I made this easy, fun, and delicious meal for myself. Hopefully I don’t need any emergency dental work during this time (Coronavirus). At this point, my dentist office is only open two days a week for emergencies.

I live alone. During this time of Coronavirus physical distancing, I expect that I will share many meals I make for myself. Usually I prefer to make food for the loved ones in my life. I put more effort into those meals and am often happier with the results. When preparing this meal I decided to make it fancy and it made me happy.
It was my first weekend alone (except for video calls, telephone calls, and numerous texts). I also waved to people while walking. It may have seemed strange a week ago, but it is now normal to move away when approaching someone while walking in my neighborhood. People are friendly and wave or say hello.
