LOL well its uncooked as I keep forgetting not everyone has a large family, so you would just use a small amount for yourself, and then what ever for whom ever else you were cooking for, I never ever go by the detail with cooking, I just take a small plate and do it that way, but if there is salad involved I make sure I eat more of that than the main meal.

Thanks for that WW, I too try to have a smaller portion of meat, fish or whatever and then load up on the salad or hot veg. It works for me.
