Cooking for one

Part of the problem when cooking for one person is trying to get the amounts right. It is so easy to prepare what seems to be a small meal and end up with enough for several days.

For example: yesterday I prepared two cups of TVP and used half of it for a very nice chili. Using half of it means, of course, that I have to use up the rest. I could leave it in the fridge, but it takes up space that the household omnivores need.

So tonight I whipped together a kind of curried "sloppy joe" thing and put it on some couscous. It was tasty but unworthy of a recorded recipe.

Note to self: Make up one cup of TVP at a time and find some alternative recipes before doing it again.
