Two of us, but we have different tastes

Actually he has als and I have been looking for recipes for him. Found that I could use canned beef stews, soups, and some of the frozen dinners for one and problem solved. Now it is my turn. I mean I can make a four serving of pasta, shepherd's pie, stew that I can take part and put into a small pie shell, that is if I have one of those small aluminum pie containers for single people, but I have the regular sized glass and aluminum pie pans that are eight or nine inch pie pans. What I want are recipes that I can divide in two, and not expensive either. I do not want one piece of pie, or one hamburger, etc. So I am looking for recipes or cookbooks that are for the budget minded one or two person household. I like variety and they have to be freezable. Any suggestions of cookbooks or sites that might help me?

I did find a recipe but although it does take about reducing the ingredients, the calculations do not go to reducing the size of the pan. I do have a small rectangular pan, but they also reduced the height as well as the length and width so i think when I go to Zellers, I will look for a small glass loaf pan. That should do it.
