Making dinner for a big family can be a challenge, but so can cooking for just two people. It might sound easy, when you think about the small amount of ingredients you’ll need, but that’s not where the problem lies. The toughest part about cooking for two is scaling the ingredients down to just two servings. Think about it for a minute. Packages of ground meat at the store are usually 1 pound (16 ounces) or larger. A typical serving size of meat is usually 4-5 ounces per person. What are you supposed to do with the other 8 ounces of ground turkey? This is where meal planning for the week can fit into the picture perfectly. Have a recipe close by that uses similar ingredients and freezes well and you’ll be on your way to tackling two meals in no time. For example, when I made this low fat turkey pumpkin pasta casserole recipe, I took the remaining 8 ounces of turkey and created a batch of my baked turkey meatballs. It was super easy and convenient. href=”http://www.itsyummi.com/low-fat-turkey-pumpkin-pasta”> CLICK HERE to come over to the virtual kitchen and I’ll show you how to whip up my delicious #IHeartDreamfields recipe for Low Fat Turkey Pumpkin Pasta!
