Can't tell when my Cal. King is hungry!

Our Cal. King seems to have reached her adult size and now seems to be eating much less frequently than she did as a juvie... She used to want a meal about once per week, then it was once every two, now she's only eating once a month or less. She's alert and often explores around her tank, but when we offer her a mouse (same size she hungrily ate before), it turns out she just wants to come out and play.

We're tired of thawing out mice to throw away, but we don't want her to starve... Any advice?
