I love leftovers for lunch or freeze them. Soups or stews always seem better as leftovers.

I do the same thing. I consider it an advantage that I'm only cooking for 1. I cook recipes of 4-8 and eat them over the week and freeze leftovers. I think it's been the key to my success. I make one dish for lunch for the week and put it in containers. I might spend a few hours cooking on Sunday but I don't have to think about lunch again for another week!
Scale the recipe as much as possible, or find the spirit of the recipe and follow that. Also, there isn't much wrong with eating something four times if it is good.

I always find recipes that look absolutely amazing, but I stop myself from making them because they always make so many servings! Sometimes I can work with it if the leftovers are freezable, but otherwise the food just goes to waste. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, what do you normally do?
