Right now it varies between 1 and 3. Some nights when DH is teaching it's just me but I'll make something that he can warm up when he gets home. Sometimes the older son will stop by and I'll add enough for him. Soon, the younger kid will be home for spring break so will have to cook for 3 pretty consistently then. Guess on average though it's just for 2.

I cook for four on average. It's just my husband and I, so we eat lots of leftovers needless to say!

I have to plan for as many as 10, but usually it's just 8 of us, as the older girls come and go with jobs and school so much I can't count on them being here.

Nothing to be embarressed about DBTRS, I do it all the time. GF does her thing and DD cooks her own most times. It's all good.

DBTRS, don't be embarassed I also cook for one. The best thing about cooking for one is that you have plenty of leftovers and you don't have to share them.

For the most part I cook for one also. Lots of leftovers gets boring. I'm trying real hard to learn to cook for at least 2. I have been checking out web sites and gathering recipes. Found a lot of new (to me) recipes also. I plan on starting my 'new' style of cooking tomorrow.
