Don't be embarrassed ... whether you cook for one or 1,000,000 ... it's all good!

Yes, cooking for one is very good!! Most single people just don't bother and just eat cereals or something, or resort to takeaway and stuff, I think it's a very positive thing to get in the kitchen just for yourself!!

For me right now head count is for 3, me, my partner and his son. But actually the amount must be like for at least 4 or perhaps 5 people, his son weighs about 120kg (270lbs) and a huge eater, my partner is a big eater and me too for my size. The other two really needs to lose some excesses so I really need to enforce a bit more strict portion control though...

I try to get everyone else served up before my oldest son gets to the main dish. He's not overweight, but he's 17 and eats heartily. Then there's my 10 year old son who is following in big brother's footsteps...

I cook for me and my bf usually. Unfortunately I have not mastered the art of cooking for two and usually end up with enough for 4 or 5.

There's just the two of us. We eat lots of leftovers.

I am trying to eliminate that and cut down the expense.

I cook for up to 1000 or so per week at work (I am a caterer) but at home its just me and my other half. And I always want something I dont have at the work kitchen. You can easily get hammed or sushi'd out!
