How do you cook for just 2 people?
I'm from a big Italian family but now it's just me and my boyfriend. What secrets are there for cooking just enough?
Just scale down your ingredients. If the original recipes serves 6, divide every by 3 for example. Some websites even have calculators that do it for you.
playing around with ingredients, I means with the same ingredients you could make several dishes, I prefer it because I don't want to eat the same dish repeatly... but if you like to cook then freeze, then it's easy
If you have too much, you can always throw it in the freezer for later!
I cook every night for me and my boyfriend. I usually buy foods that are frozen or foods that can be frozen like meats, breads, veggies, etc. With meats like chicken or pork, I only defrost and use enough for the two of us at a time and leave the rest in the freezer. Sides that require full ingredients I will usually just tupperware the leftovers and stick in the fridge as a snack for later.
There aren't really any secrets, just experience. Two people will usually eat about a pound of food in one meal. Most packages are labeled with their weight, so when you're planning your meal use those weights to help guide you. If you're preparing from scratch it might be worthwhile to invest in a kitchen scale.
I cook for two people. If I make a homemade soup, for example, I make enough for 6 people then we eat once and freeze two meals. Fortunately left overs are always useful.
