Individual portion control. Sometimes I dont know what to do with myself so I make individual servings. Sometimes I crack out old diner menus that I have collected and I let people order from the menu and I try and see if I have the stuff to make it. Sometimes I take something that I make all the time and its fool proof and I completely screw it up because I think I can "make it better." Sometimes I microwave frozen swanson or banquet pot pies cause the kid likes em.
Sometimes I make individual eggplant parmeseans
Fry up the eggplant in the normal way.
Layer into a muffin tin with ricotta and sauce alternately.
Bake till bubbly. Serve it up.
