Cooking for 2

One of the hardest things to get used to when my husbands deployed is cooking for just me and my little girl. The two of us combined, I'm cooking for one. I'm not big on leftovers but I have had to get used to having them often. A few tips I have learned:
Eat Leftovers, for lunch or the next night.
Cut the recipe in half if possible to make a smaller meal.
Freeze half of the meal for another day. I have kept food in the freezer for several weeks. As long as its sealed well it will heat up just fine either in the microwave or in a pot.

Also at our old duty station I had a friend who's husband was deployed with mine. We would get together once or twice a week for dinner at each others houses. Unfortunately I don't know anyone here yet, so doesn't work this time.
