In Response to Re: WHAT IS YOUR FAVE WINTER MEAL???????:
I have a great lasagna recipe(in the old Betty Crocker cookbook) that I love. However, my husband, not so much. Tried cutting the recipe in half and it still makes way too much unless I can give away about 2/3 of it lol. Love sauerkraut with meat balls too but only make that once a year when my husband isn't around and then give away most of it to my kids. Unfortunately for me, my daughter went vegetarian about two months ago so she won't take any now. Guess that leaves more for my son to take lol. Maybe I'll just make more soups this year. Chicken soup is always a good thing to have. Time to experiment lol.

H.M. I have the perfect solution for you..
Make the lasagna but use 3 loaf pans. the lasagna noodle fits perfectly in the pan.
I line the 3 pans with plastic wrap then layer the noodles and all the rest of the stuff.
Once you have the lasagna made fold the plastic wrap up and freeze. Once the pans are frozen remove the lasagna from the pan and re wrap in aluminum foil and put back in the freezer.
whn you want lasagna remove one from the freezer un wrap put back in the loaf pan and bake. Or you can thaw then bake.
One of these will serve 2 or 3 people depending on how large the slice is and how much you packed into the pan.
now you can have the lasagna and make something else for your husband and you will have 2 or 3 days of lasagna.
I also saw an interesting take on lasagna made in muffin tins. wonton wrappers were used rather than regular noodles. If you do your lasagna in large muffin tins I am sure one will be perfect for a serving. These would almost be easier to tuck into the freezer. Just freeze and toss into a zip top bag then pull out what you need.
