Let's get down to brass tacks..What's the average Chowhounds c**k size?

You read it.....what's your average cook size? When I cook it's generally with the intention of having plenty of left overs for the family to eat during the week. Since I'm the chef of my house, and I generally have appointments several nights a week, causing me to eat out, I cook in abundance on the weekends so we have plenty of left overs to hold the family over during the week.

I know people who despise left overs and do their best to gauge their meals for just enough for that particular meal, anything left over goes out with the trash, that's not me.

So what about you? When you cook, what's your cook size?

  1. I used to cook for a legion, even tho it's just the two of us. You know how a simple stir-fry can suddenly balloon into something you'd need at least 4 more folks to finish.

    Since neither of us are particularly fond of leftovers (save for a few exceptions) and don't have much freezer space either, I've simply cut down on the amount of food I make.

    (Not counting the two racks of spare ribs I smoked yesterday, of which we have a full rack leftover. Now -- *those* kinds of leftovers we like :-)

    Most of the time, there's just a few bites left to be demolished later that same evening, or for lunch the next day.

    1. Okay, you caught me.

      I have no interest in how much food other folks cook.

      I just wanted to know who all the CH liars were.

      1. Wonderful use of asterisks.

        Isn't 5 the average?:-)

            I've got to be perfectly honest with you HillJ, I have no idea what over @ Chow is?

            Outside of these boards I have no clue what the rest of the site is about.

                Ok, I ventured on over to CHOW.com, I felt like a little boy from Indiana in NY for the first time. There were so many pictures, topics, reviews, blogs, recipes, I didn't know where to turn or what to do. At one point a man pulled up in a van and offered me candy to get in and help him look for his lost puppy, I declined.

                I'm not really sure what to do, just comment on blogs? Should I review a new appliance? Write a recipe, wait I don't use recipes! I'm really unsure what that whole place is about, it's a foreign land to me.

                I wanted to replace the Super Taster guy.....although I'm not arrogant enough to consider myself "Super" so I was thinking about doing a video blog called "The adequate sampler", I'm still waiting for the Chow phone to ring.

                Help me HillJ....hold my hand and guide me into what CHOW.com is all about.

                  Don't get in the car, dammit! ROFL!
                  Ring, brrrrrrrrring! Jr. calling for a job interview!
                  Head to San Francisco for the answers.

                  CHOW is a magazine format, the staff here run the show on CHOW. It's the HQ.

          2. I cook for two people, leftovers are for one persons lunch.

            For dessert, usually enough for 2-3 nights.
