what do you do when you make more food than you can eat???? for those of us who live alone, it's a bit of a problem [one i've been dealing with for awhile]. freezing is one option, but not the best [do you REALLY want a freezer stash consisting of 12 cups of chili????]. and leftovers are OK for a couple of days.
I've been making soups and sharing them with a friend. She recently lost her sister, and hasn't been cooking. This has worked really well for both of us. Another friend who's had the surgery came up with a BRILLIANT idea: she called her town's social service department and found that there were a couple of elderly folks in her town who really could use a hot meal.
Sometimes I purposely invite people over so that they can take food home.
anyone have any other thoughts? believe me, it's times like these that i wish i had TEENAGERS at home!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
