When I make a batch of spaghetti, I measure the pasta onto my plate (1 cup cooked). I measure the olive oil I add to the meat mixture. So if I add 2 Tbsp of oil and I have 25% of the meat mixture, I enter .5 Tbsp in my nutrition tracker. I measure the sauce going into the meat mixture (2 cups for 4 servings) and add 1/2 cup to my nutrition tracker. Look at the package of turkey - some are 16 oz, but some are 20 oz. Just be mindful.
Tracking food made in batches is math. Total all calories and nutrients on the nutrition tracker, then divide by the number of servings. Enter the calculations for the single serving under "Favorites" with a title you can remember. For me, it's "Charlotte's Spaghetti Sauce" or "Charlotte's Vegetable Soup". If it's a food you make often, it saves trouble the next time you prepare it.
A scale was a huge help for me. I found one I love on Amazon. The brand is Taylor, and it measures in grams and ounces. You can also zero out the weight of the dish the food is in so that you only get the weight of the food. I have to change the battery about once a year.
I think it's wise to do what you're doing - checking portions sizes and servings and entering them on SP. We tend to fool ourselves when we guess at food quantities.
