Mini Ccockpot cooking

Cooking for a single person can be quite challenging.  After a twelve-hour day between my commute and my time in the office, I rarely feel like coming home to cook so I try to plan my meals in advance, cooking on Sunday’s and Wednesdays, and alternating left overs throughout the week.  This weekend I found a roast kit complete with potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery.  It was the perfect size for me and made probably enough for three meals.

I just dropped everything in the baby crockpot, added water, and let it cook while I was busy doing other things.  At dinner time the meat was falling apart tender and I just had to add some corn as an additional veggie.  Of course on Wednesday I will have to come up with something else for the rest of the week, but that is all part of the adventure.  Maybe I will use my buffet server crockpots next time.

I recently made some cupcakes for a get together and ended up having nearly a dozen left over.  My mom loves frozen cake so I thought I would freeze the left over cupcakes and share them with her when she came to visit.  They of course were a big hit, so when I got my teeny tiny silicon cupcake molds for my birthday, I decided to try out some mini muffins in the freezer.

Oh my!  They are so good and really just bite size.  When I have a craving for a little something sweet, but don’t want to over do it, I pop one of these babies out of the freezer straight into my mouth.  I think these mold will be great for making truffles also.  I think I’m going to try some Chocolate Cookie Dough truffles next.
