Oh Dear – Mom Was in the Kitchen This Weekend

24 Oct

Yes folks, you read that right.  Mom was in the kitchen this past weekend.  That’s one of the scariest things that I’ve written all month – snorts with piggy laughter.

Mom/dad were talking Friday night and mom was determined to master the perfect popover roll or Yorkshire Pudding.  I have to say this about mom.  When she is determined about something, she gets head strong and focused driven.  This can be good and bad.  Good because if things don’t come out ‘exactly’ right, me and dad get them.  Sometimes what mom thinks are accidents can really be good to us.  But as mom says, practice makes perfection.  But mom saying she wanted to perfect these over the weekend even had our closet skeletons laughing.  They knew too that this would be a fun if not bumpy ride.

Let me preface this by saying that earlier in the week, mom made this popover rolls / Yorkshire Pudding perfectly.  Mom didn’t take a picture because (A) her and dad couldn’t get out of them long enough to take a picture and (B) mom was so shocked they came out wonderfully that she had to eat them.  So there we were Saturday for experiment 2.  This picture with two ‘popover rolls’ is not perfect.  They look wonderful but for some reason they didn’t ‘pop’.  They were dense and heavy.  Think Ellie Mae from the Beverly Hillbillies.  Mom says she could have hurt someone if she threw one of these at them.  Me and dad however thought they were awesome.  To us they were a little heavier than a biscuit but better than a roll.  See what I was saying about mom’s mistakes sometimes being our blessings?

 But mom doesn’t give up.  If anything, mom is not a quitter.  Sunday was experiment 3.  Now, mom followed a recipe that she got from our great friend Bill , you know Shoko and Kali’s dad from Canadian Cats. (Thanks Bill – you rock!)  While mom waited, she fixed the rest of dinner which might I add was simply delicious!  Then the timer went off for the popovers.  She took the pan out holding her breath.  That’s when it happened.  The fat lady sung.  Birds started singing.  These were perfection.  Now the tin in the picture is deep so you can’t really see it but these ‘popped’.  They were nice and moist in the inside – empty and hollow like they are suppose to be.

Dad couldn’t wait to try one.  He grabbed our fine china and a hot popover right from the tin.  He pulled it apart and do you see that??  Awesomeness all bundled up together as one.  They were that good.

So has mom perfected these?  We won’t know until she tries again.  This could have just been an accident.  Do your humans do this in the kitchen?  I’m off now – I think one of these bad boys are calling my name.  I’m going to see if dad will share with this oinker.

    Beautiful popovers! Well done. I made some Monkey Bread yesterday and can’t stop nibbling on it’s creamy caramel sauce. Just thinking about it makes me wander into the kitchen and now I’m planning on making a savory flavored one. 😉

        My son turned me on to it a few years ago. He’s an AMAZING cook! Some days it’s just very therapeutic creating masterpieces in the kitchen.

    Good for you…you have become an obsessive compulsive Yorkshire Pudding mcker…I mean maker…MOL Mom and dad want you to make them some when they come down again. They look better than mom’s Yorkshire Pudding mix.

    Yorkshire puddings are easy peasey! I learned how to make them because – well – I married into a British family and they eat them…with lots of gravy. I can make cottage and Shepard’s pies but still cannot make a scone right 😦

      Oh cool!! I would love to have your recipe 🙂
      We are working on Shepard’s pie next.

    Those look gorgeous. Mom is NOTHING like that in the kitchen. She doesn’t follow recipes at all. She reads recipes and then makes up food from her head.

    Love and licks,

    I have to change ingredients in everything to adhere to food allergies around here. No dairy (goat ok), gluten, corn, soy, etc. It gets challenging. Sometimes my husband declares a creation delicious and wants more on something I wouldn’t eat if it was the last thing in the house. I am still working at being the master of substitutions. Eating out is almost impossible!

      Oh my gosh! How do the hub units survive with us? I’ve seen mine eat things that I wouldn’t even attempt and shiver at the thought. All the while saying how delicious it is. Shaking my head – that must be love. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

        I don’t know, but I’m just glad mine will eat the things he CAN eat since there is so much he can’t eat. BTW, I haven’t been seeing your replies to my comments, but just figured out in WP how to see all the replies from everyone! Yay!

      Mom/dad said this was the best attempt so far. Mom is not giving up though – not yet. XOXO – Bacon
