The first thing i jump on is making a broth for soup. There are plenty of fresh vegetables in abundance at the moment, so why not use them up? Zucchini, summer squash, green and yellow beans, fresh herbs…limitless!
And what to go with it? Hmmmmmm…. how about popovers from my King Arthur Bakers Companion Cookbook. This particular recipe came tomind because my poor poor friend Cheryl, from Desserts in My Kitchen has still not recieved her copy of it yet. It’s been almost a week i think, but i can imagine the suspense and anticipation of waiting for the mailman every day…… : Sorry hun, insert giggle here….) You will get it.. it just seems like forever. By the way, if you have a minute (or 10) please stop by her blog, it is full of beautiful pictures and recipes.
On to the popover recipe~
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 scant cup cup King Arthur Flour
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon mixed herbs, optional
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease six 6-ounce custard cups or each cup in pan. I, myself have invested in a popover pan.
- In a medium bowl beat eggs slightly, Beat in flour, milk and salt until just smooth; being careful not to overbeat. Fill custard cups 2/3 full.
- Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for 10 minutes more. Let sit for 5 minutes, then poke with sharp knife and remove from pan.
I opened my mail today, thinking ” I didn’t order any books!” and to my suprise was a complimentary copy of COUNTRY WOMAN CHRISTMAS with a small note attached saying that one of my recipes is displayed on page 57. REALLY? I open it up and see this….. YAY!
