My week is about 50/50 ... half the time I cook for just two - Hubby and myself ... the other half I have my best friend & her husband over - making us four. It's fun to have friends over to share meals & feasts. About once a month I have a dinner party for about 8 friends ... usually with a theme. I am truly blessed to have the time to do this because I'm a 'Stay-At-Home-Wife' (formerly - when the kids were young - a 'Stay-At-Home-Mom').

Five people every day. Three of which each the same thing, then my husband is on this diet creation of rice and beans he insists on eating for dinner every night and then my son, who is 12 yrs old does the usual kids meal, hotdogs, chicken nuggets, grill cheese, cereal or sometimes just cheese and crackers.

I just have myself and my daughter and half the time I cook for both of us and only I eat. It's actually getting old that every time I cook, she goes out and every time I don't cook it seems to be the night she's home saying "what's for dinner?" I think last night was the first time in a couple weeks that I didn't cook and she didn't want dinner.

In the winter, for the most part it's just the two of us. In the summer we host open houses here frequently, and I never know how many will a) show up and b) stay for dinner. I have to make my recipes EXTREMELY flexible!

4 grown-ups and two kids, one of which is only 4 months old, so she probably doesn't count. Her mother is breastfeeding and eats enough for two, so maybe I should count the baby after all I usually have a big Sunday dinner so my other daughter and her boyfriend can join us and get a homecooked meal.
