Welcome to DC, Rose!! We also cook for just the two of us, the main danger is that, when there is some leftover hanging around after the dinner, too often we decide "heck, let's just finish it!!" Ending up eating too much, both of us!!

I stopped cooking enough for two meals...we often ate it all too.

When we had a large freezer, I would double a recipe and freeze half of it to use for another meal. But, now our freezer is too small for that.

Many times I feel it isn't worth the work to cook for just myself during the week and that makes me sad as I love to cook.
Cook it and freeze it for another day, or simply share it with friends Shunka! Cooking usually makes anyone feel better any time.

Welcome DesertRose! You'll love it here.
