How to Make Loneliness (Serves 1)
Crush fresh melancholy with a pestle dusted with self doubt until a paste forms. If paste is too watery, add more self doubt until desired consistency.
In a small bowl, whisk your favorite sad melodies vinaigrette with two handfuls of uninterrupted time.
Add paste to small bowl in increments. Whisk until thoroughly co(nfused)mbined.
Spread dressing onto slice of your favorite toasted regret.
Eat while warm or chill in your cold heart to save for later.

I can't help but think that loneliness is a slightly oozing result of bad decisions. Lest it become overwhelming, mix well with alcohol and/or self-pity and drink regularly.

Lovely recipe. As the parent of young children, though, I am finding it hard to source uninterrupted time.

My suggestion is very late at night, or frighteningly early in the morning. Both choices are less than optimal.

We should swap recipes, I think. I'll try yours soon for a change of flavor. :D
