Cooking for one

I’ve been living alone this year and for the first time have been cooking for just me. The cooking itself has been fun, but the shopping has been hard. Whenever I go to the store, I buy much more veggies and herbs than I actually need, because my internal calculations for how much I need is out of whack. Fast forward a week or so and I open the fridge to find that the remaining veg has gone bad (rotting or fungus or both). I’ve also found that onions (onions!) go bad after a point. So now for veg that needs to go in the fridge, I buy two or three of each. This has led to much less food wastage, and an actually clean fridge.
