Problem with li:hover

I have a problem with my menu. I am trying to make a hover a different color.
If I do a:hover, the background color is too small.
If I do li:hover, the color is too big.
Is there a middle ground, like using margin and padding?
If I add it to the :hover state, the item grows on hover instead of staying the same size and just making colors.

Try adjusting your height on the #nav ul li to 36px.  

Then(just as a helper) give your #nav ul li ul a property of top:32px

Now that I adjusted those setting, the submenu doesn't stay still. It's hard to get it to stay popped open when you hover over it . It jumps too fast.
