Our kids are all grown and gone and have their own families now. With the hectic nature of today's world, and the demands of working and raising their own kids and mostly being two hours or more away, we don't get to visit and break bread with them very often. So there is little opportunity (or need) to prepare meals for four, eight or twelve people anymore.
So Cheryl and I are left to ourselves and we find that cooking for just two people is REALLY difficult! Sure, we can cook larger quantities and eat left overs for two or three days, but leftovers are...well, LEFTOVERS! So we have embarked on a journey to learn how to cook for just ourselves without resorting to eating leftovers that have been recooked two or three times and are way beyond being exciting, or even appetizing!
Cooking for two is not simply cooking smaller portions. Of course, that's a PART of it, but it also involves buying appropriate quantities, learning to partially pre-cook, freezing, canning, dehydrating or otherwise preserving cooked or partially cooked food AND making every meal or snack exciting.
We all have to eat! But there's no reason that preparing food has to take hours and result in several days of dull, tasteless, overcooked, unappetizing or bland meals. Come along with us as we explore the ways to prepare and serve modest proportions of delicious and exciting food, be it an entree, side dish, snack or exotic
