I love making a good & thick crockpot soup & freezing the serving sized portions. My dinner tonight was warmed up chili. In fact, I warmed my (frozen) single serving in the tiny crockpot.

I love to make big batches of things and then freeze them in single serving containers so that I can take them to work for my lunch. I don't mind eating the same thing a bunch of times if it's good, and this is definitely soup season so I'll be freezing some meals for myself soon...

There was much rejoicing!

I like left overs. Some I freeze, others are dinner or lunch the next day.

I like leftovers. It can either be another dinner or at least lunch.

It depends on the food. Most soups taste better following days after preparation.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I've always fixed the recipe as originally written (usually enough for 6-8 servings). Some leftovers went for DH lunch @ work the next day. Some recipes were so big that we'd get sick of the leftovers. I finally learned my lesson with the huge recipes & would freeze half of it, right off the bat. Less food was wasted & less cooking, in the long run. Now-a-days, I'm wondering more about fixing smaller meals. Haven't decided, yet. Any advice for me?

Q: Do you like fixing a large family sized recipe, even if that means there might be lots of leftovers? If so, what do you do with the leftovers? OR, do you prefer to fix smaller recipes that won't produce all those leftovers?
