Does anyone have any good recipes for 2 people?
I went from cooking for 5 to cooking for 2 and it isn't easy.
I find a lot of times thinking I am making enough for 2 and I end up with enough left overs for days.

ROFL honey if you got solutions, I'm all ears. I'm in the same boat.

LOL maybe we are BOTH up the same creek without the paddle eh?

I've been enjoying Taste of Home's Cooking for 2 mag, but it only comes out 4 times a year.

I cut down then dh says not enough leftovers which he prefers to sandwiches, so then I make a normal amount, and he decides he doesn't want leftovers that day or next.

It's a learning curve and I'm tossing a lot more than I used to.

Some I freeze for future individual meals but honestly I'm not sure I've got a good answer on that yet.

dd left home this summer, ds the previous spring. Gone from 4 to 2 in a year.:D

www.allrecipes.com will scale the recipes to fit your crowd. . .. I generally have to scale up, rather than down.

Also- I just cook regular recipes, then freeze the leftovers in sectioned plates I bought at the dollar store. Instant TV dinners, and we don't get tired of the same old thing for many nights.
