When the kids lived at home and there were four of us, I always made recipes that served 6 or 8. Invariably, everything was gone when dinner was over. Now that they are in their own places and cooking their own meals, I tend to make recipes that serve 4 for the two of us. Invariably, everything is gone when dinner is over. So the diet tip for today is, make the correct serving size for the number of people who are eating! If you are convinced that you must have leftovers, the leftovers should be put in the refrigerator or freezer before you sit down to eat. Maybe you have a lot more willpower than I do, but probably you don’t.
