Impromptu Popovers

IMG_5604

Daughter and I ┬ámade Popovers yesterday. We were home because school was canceled. She got a cookbook, Pretend Soup, for Christmas and it’s been a big hit. She “reads” the recipes and asks if we have all the ingredients. For most of them we’ve missing one thing: Apple Juice concentrate; zucchini; or a soup packet. But we had everything for the Popovers. And I love Popovers.

They were so easy! The book gives provides one set of directions for the adult and photos to follow along for the kids. There are tips and suggestions to get the child involved, such as brushing the muffin tin with melted butter. Daughter is a whiz at cracking eggs and whisking, so this was really simple. Mom is not so good at the mess that gets made, but I just remind myself that I can clean it up, I can clean it up.

Thirty minutes later we pulled the pan of Popovers out of the oven and immediately we each ate two of them (they’re small). They are so good. Especially right out of the oven.

School is closed again today, but Grandpa is coming down to watch Daughter. It is 12 degrees below zero right now, but the high today is 1 above. Tomorrow the high is 4 above. Will they have school tomorrow?

If not, I need to load up on eggs so we can bake more popovers!
