Get me out of the kitchen!

Saturday as a treat for Valentines Day I decided to make chocolate dipped Strawberries. Simple, quick and on my weight control menu.
In and out of the kitchen in maybe 20 minutes, tops.
Yummy looking aren't they?

Well there was some chocolate left over and not one to waste food grabbed a few almonds ( they are good for you, right) and made some chocolate almond bark.
Tasty!

While getting supplies out of fridge noticed left over rice.
Hum ............ can't waste that!
Baked Rice Pudding .

Notice the 2 small ramekins , well there was left over custard from the rice pudding, can't waste that!
Eureka, 2 little baked custards
In the fridge while rummaging for eggs and milk ( never
bend down and look in crispers), noticed apples on their last legs...
Yep, you guessed it had to use them up.......

Spice and apple cupcakes with Penuche icing.
( My favourite icing)
5 and 1/2 hours later I left the the kitchen........
Did I taste these treats , well as you know, any good chef says one MUST taste as one cooks.( Weight control! out of control!)............
Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows there are only 2 people in this house.
Do you think you could drop over and help me out with these treats ,
happy to share.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, shhhhh. Did you just hear that? My stomach is growling...it needs the chocolate almond bark!!! What? None leftover, well,.......hmmmm, I never!!!

Yummy stuff. And my mom used to make Penuche candy...like fudge. Now this icing looks scrumptious and on top of apple cupcakes no less.

Guess, now, I'll have to go raid the 'fridge.

You sure have been a busy gal! I think the strawberries would have to be my pick. Thanks for your comment on my GBBD post.
