We're talking here about things like salmon/chicken/pork that always seem to come in pairs. I cook for dh and myself after dd has gone to bed but put leftovers in the fridge for her lunch next day. Usually I just cook 2 fillets, cut a bit off mine and leave her that but she loves that sort of meat and would eat far more (she's 22 months) - enough to leave me with only half a fillet or less. Cooking 4 fillets seems overkill though. What does everybody else do with this type of thing?
1 pack. dh and I just have a little less than we would have had pre child. The basic range often have 3 smaller ones in so they are worth a look at at. Doesn't do us adults any harm to have a little less meat and a bit more veg.
I tend to overcook stuff like that and fridge lunch for the DC's out of it. If I were to split things before cooking it, I'd forget about it and not use it again which would be more of a waste than not cooking it iyswim
We had this issue when we got an AP - so 3 adults to feed not two. Quite often I buy larger quantities and freeze 3 portions. Or i split 2 between 3 anyway. Chicken breasts can be huge. Quite often chop them up, griddle and serve with lots of lentils / veg etc.
