Not About Food 32

please help cure me - i always make too much food!

no matter if it's just eating at home for dinner or making food for a party, i'm always so worried "there won't be enough for everyone." a theme my mother repeated every time we had company.

now, however, i'm tired of always having leftovers. so what's the solution? should i make 4 oz servings of meat for each person and the serving size of pasta on the box or what? i feel like that just won't be enough! are those serving sizes real? i'm not overweight at all - but feel like the amount they "say" you should eat isn't what people really eat. for example - 2 servings of soup or chili per can? no way.

does anyone struggle with this or have any solutions?
