Do you also cook too much?

Ok, I must be paranoid. Whenever I invite people over I always make too much food. Heck, we eat leftovers for 3 days sometimes or I end up freezing some stuff !
I will give you today's example- I am making dinner tonight for 3 of us plus 3 guests. I will serve 3lbs of pasta with a ton of cream/sausage sauce, a big dish of eggplant parmesan, a bowl of a salad ( a wonderful Martha Stewart inspired salad with pumpkin seed vinegrette and sauteed red onions), roasted and then marinated red peppers, garlic crostinis and a variety of olives.
Now that I look at the amount of food, I start thinking I am crazy. But I also know, I will make too much next time I have somebody over. Does anybody out there have a same problem?
