Blueberry Popovers

This recipe was given to me by my mother-in law when I lived in England. They are very easy to make and I think you might want to add any other fruit of your choice.

Easy Popovers

1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon alt
3 large eggs
1 ½ cups milk
4 Tablespoons butter

In large bowl mix flour & salt.  Make a well in the center.
In another bowl beat eggs & milk together.
Gradually pour milk & egg mixture into the well of flour.
Mix until slightly lumpy do not over mix.

Set aside for 30 minutes at least to 1 hour.  Preheat oven to 425
 Put 1 tsp of butter in each muffin cup. Melt in hot oven about 1 minute . Remove from oven & pour evenly the batter into the cups. Bake until popovers are puffed and golden brown. ( about 20 minutes) Turn out popovers and serve warm.
(I add blueberries, stir into batter before placing in the cups) just before baking.. Just sprinkle a few into the mixture.
Bon appetite!

Pulled Pork Sandwich kind of day

 Today is Saturday, a quiet, slow moving day, means a  Slow cooker... And a Pulled Pork Sandwich Dinner.
I got a late start on this  but had plenty of time before dinner at 7:00
Does that sound  like a good dinner to you?

I started it at 1PM and managed to take a nice nap at 3:00... I used a nice pork  butt shoulder roast I had in the freezer. Thawed it out and popped it well seasoned into the crock pot for 6 hours. It was perfect accompanied with a cold imported Mexican  Beer & dill pickle. Oh yes, I am full and have left overs for another....maybe tomorrow lunch?
