Sarah Jessica Parker’s dinner for one will inspire you to treat yourself

Sarah Jessica Parker knows that one doesn’t have to be the loneliest number after all.

The 52-year-old actress Instagrammed a video on Wednesday preparing herself a “dinner for one,” and it looked simply divine.

For the main course, Parker had a piece of roast beef that she got from her local butcher, which, she said, “they affectionately call ‘roast beast.’” She then introduced her beverage of choice—a nice white wine. “Yes, I know chardonnays don’t go, traditionally don’t go with red meat,” she admitted, “but who cares because it’s Rombauer.”

Parker also threw some veggies into the mix, showing off a head of gem lettuce, some broccoli that she planned to boil with olive oil, salt and pepper.

As if our mouths weren’t watering already, she then revealed some gorgeous summer tomatoes and fresh mozzarella from Eataly as her final ingredients. “And really, what more could I possibly ask for?” she questioned, happily.

Of course, after preparing such a meal, dessert is well deserved. So, the star posted a follow-up video with the caption, “For those inquiring, the 1 item on the dessert menu. X, SJ.” This “last important detail,” as she referred to it, was Ben & Jerry’s cult classic flavor, Phish Food.
