Special recipes for our Veterans - Cooking for 1 or 2

After a full career on active duty, one of the best benefits you get to take with you into retirement is continued access to the commissary. Since family size may be a little smaller, you might be tempted to eat out more often. Maybe you have trouble paring down favorite recipes that once fed a family of four or more, and dread dealing with all those leftovers.

What you need are recipes tailor-made for one or two. I’ve collected some of the best, all of which are quick and easy.

Make it easy on your budget by looking to your commissary for all the ingredients. Make it better for your health and your waistline by cooking at home, and make it fun for your taste buds at each and every meal.
