Cooking for 2 is less of a problem now. DH just retired and we are finally eating at the same time. Now I have to figure out how to cook just enough without extras for his lunches.

Have started rethinking my grocery shopping and budget.

This is going to be a challenge for the better.

What would you like? Considering the heat of summer, I go for cool and light.

Sometimes, when it's just DH and me, I might whip up some W/W pasta with basil pesto and a salad.

Or, I'll get a roasted chicken and slice some skinless breast meat for a chicken Ceasar salad. It's also good with mixed field greens, dried cranberries or cherries, walnuts, artichoke hearts and basalmic vinaigrette.

A nice grilled salmon filet served with easy brown and wild rice pilaf and streamed veggies make an easy meal.

It just depends on what you like. Make it fresh and easy. :)

I'm all for batch cooking, especially in the colder months but sometimes I just want a good meal for the 2 of us and I don't want the hassle of figuring out how much to serve out of a recipe that servers 12. Does anyone have some good ideas for recipes that serve 2?
