ideal number of bowls for kitchen sink? 1, 2, or 3?

i'm trying to struggle through the relative merits of single vs. double vs. triple bowl kitchen sinks. my husband and i are completely renovating our new home (we just got married! still getting used to saying "my husband." : ) any input you hounds could provide would be so very helpful, since i'm getting stalled on a lot of the kitchen details, including this one.

ONE BOWL: i can see the allure of having one very large sink that fits large pots and baking sheets.
TWO BOWLS: i would like to install a garbage disposal, and thought it would be nice to have a little bowl dedicated to that in addition to a large bowl.
THREE BOWLS: in case i do have one small bowl dedicated to garbage disposal, it would also be nice to have two large bowls, one for accumulating dirty dishes and one for prepping food, which would come in handy for large dinner parties.

what do people think? also, do you have recommendations for particular sinks? i am leaning towards an undermount triple bowl blanco, 513-690, stainless steel with two bowls 17"x18", and one bowl 9" x18". but perhaps a large single bowl with a garbage disposal, and a separate prep sink would be more functional? and maybe cheaper. help! thanks!
