Sounds like it would be a good dessert, too!

Oh, dear. When I grew up I never heard of anyone who disliked leftovers, but I'm hearing it more and more in recent years. Even some who don't like a slice of leftover pizza or Chinese carry-out! Since there are only two of us, I plan for leftovers. and ... don't know what to call it. But meals that progress and morph into other meals. Bones from steaks that become bones for stock for onion soup which become beef stroganof that eventually makes a couple of meals. But there are some meals that are impossible to do for two, and I guess I'm lucky that my husband loves to eat his favorites over and over and over again. I also have a couple of shut-in friends and always package up some meals that you sort of have to make for many for them and/or their care-givers.

Me too, Claire. Now that I live alone, I make most of my recipes the same way as always. Most are large servings for 4. One I eat, one I keep in the fridge for day after (the best day, usually) and two are frozen.

I often make more than one meal at a time when my back is behaving, so that I have a really messy kitchen day, then several days with no mess at all. Those freezer dinner days are great when my back is really bad.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
