This Lonely Bachelor’s Food Blog Will Make You Cry


Consider this a warning: Do NOT read this blog if:

  1. You happen to be eating alone right now
  2. You enjoy being happy
  3. Food fail sightings send you into deep depression

The Tumblr Dimly Lit Meals for One chronicles the sad bachelor meals we all know we made in college and beyond. It’s that awkward stage between figuring out how to cook pasta, but wanting to move away from Chinese takeout and burritos every night. It results in sad sad meals like couscous and tuna, soggy eggs on toast, and potato-thingies.

Seriously guys, if you’re really struggling this much, email me. I will come over and cook you a meal (maybe). You’re breaking my heart here.

Nora Landis-Shack was born to be a foodie. With a classically trained French chef for a father, she’s been exploring new tastes since she was big enough to help chop vegetables for dinner. Pig’s feet, frog’s legs, and tripe are delicious child’s play. Which isn’t to say she doesn’t love a great steak. Because she does. With frites, please.

    Four words for this blogger: MAN the **** UP. No excuse for any adult to eat like this unless you have a mental illness.

      No kidding. I think I’d stick with Chinese takeaway and burritos.

    I’d rather eat beans out of the can, while sitting on railroad tracks alone.
    I’ve been alone for years, but at least I can cook.

    This might be why he eats alone. Oy, take a cooking class, watch some foodnetwork, ask a hot girl to teach you, but NEVER eat like that again.
