    I'm thinking about doing SW, but remember when I did it before I soon got bored with the same things over and over, and all the recipes served 4, I dont like freezing stuff, and some recipes are hard to divide all the ingredients by 4. Any suggestions?

    Oh boy, did I hope there would be lots of replies to this one when I came into the thread. But not one???? :eek: Hmmm. Well just in case someone has got any ideas for recipes for one person I'm up for trying them. I agree with the girl who started this thread about everything being for 4 people in all the recipe books and how difficult it is sometimes to divide the measurements properly to bring it down to one. Come all you great cooks out there, help us!!! :wave_cry:

    :eat: lol

    You could always freeze the other servings for another day. Will come in handy for busy days.

    Like Dietingdon I don't like freezing the other 3 meals. They never taste as good. Plus I've only got a small freezer, just enough room for my normal supplies.
    But thanks for your input anyway.

    All the best. x

    Maybe make 2 servings? Like dinner one might and lunch the following day. I find then just putting it in the fridge and heating it up doesn't lose the taste etc. some things actually taste nicer left overnight i.e curry, chilli etc as the flavour gets absorbed.

    Sorry if this is useless its the only thing I found to do x
