I like the convenience of single-serve fruit cups. The other day I decided to make some Jell-o for the first time in ages and thought, wouldn't it be convenient if I had something handy to make this into single servings? As I opened up my fridge to put the breadpan of Jell-o in to chill, I spied the pineapple fruit cups that I frequently buy on one of the shelves. That's it!

- If you wash and save the containers from single-portion fruit or yogurts (the 1/2 cup size), they are the perfect size for a variety of things, ranging from allowing you to create single-serve portions of Jell-o, homemade pudding, etc.; to being a great size to serve as ramikins for say, when you have Chinese takeout, and you want some place to put the sweet'n'sour sauce, to being a handy dish to hold chopped ingredients while cooking.

Obviously, you're not going to put them out on the table for company, but they're proving quite handy around the kitchen. :)
