One would think that I should have learned to cut recipes in half when we became empty-nesters (several years ago), but I am just now learning this. Why? Because even though it was just the two of us, we were eating too much, so if a recipe said that it served 6, I would make it for an evening meal and have leftovers for lunch the next day, and then have a couple servings to freeze. For that reason, I never reduced the amount I was used to cooking. Now, however, because we are eating only when hungry and stopping when full, we have discovered we eat far less. So a recipe that states that it makes 4 servings, really ends up being 8. Our freezer is filling up with leftovers.
I need to remember to cut the recipes in half!
