Recently, when my kids went away to school, I asked a friend if she'd want to cook for me one night, and I'd cook one night per week. She said "Sure! And Let's get Stef, and Jenny, and Taimi, too!"
Soon, I was cooking once per week, and enjoying home cooked dinners with friends 5 nights a week!
Sure beats cooking-for-one 5 nights a week and eating alone!
