My meal time routine is that I try to cook exactly the amount that we will eat, or I intentionally cook for two meal. I serve up the plates at the stove and serve. I do this for my own portion control and to ensure ease of clean-up. If I serve it all up, then the cookware goes right into the sink for a rinse!! I've been doing it this way for as long as I can remember:')
If I put food on the table, then I always eat more that I need.. UGH!
Also, I hate it when there is that one tablespoon of green beans left and no one will take it.
