Cooking for one or two requires simple planning | Characteristic

My husband and I were “empty nesters” for exactly one semester in the fall of 2019. Then COVID-19 hit and my grown children moved back home. During this time, it became apparent that we needed to make significant adjustments to our grocery shopping, menu planning, and food preparation.

Today, many people who live alone, including those who have successfully maintained that empty nest, find it more difficult to cook for just one or two.
