i believe you miss understood me. i am married 52 years, we are both trying to slim down. i just don't care to prepare recipes for 6 to 8 servings/ we get tired of things after a meal or two. i am good and re-using meals by adding a vegetable or rice to change it up. i just prefer to make smaller quanities. thanks for all the encouragement and advise.

There are many things I'm the only one that eats in my house. I freeze the rest in single serving containers and have meals to take to work or to eat when I don't feel like cooking.

I take it you are single? I find serving sizes smaller than what one person eats in my household and we all love leftovers. So even if I was single, I think I would prefer recipes of about 3 servings. IE smaller than I make now and smaller than many recipes, but one can scale recipes, as long as one knows what to do with the partial cans and such. That is the hardest part of scaling recipes. Is partial cans of tomato paste, beans, etc.
