I was up early, as usual, so I took a drive to Cup A Joe for a latte and the paper. I had forgotten The Raleigh Christmas Parade is today so there was a detour around Hillsborough Street and through an old Raleigh neighborhood. I then realized there was a light frost on the some roofs. Note to self: house plants must be cleaned and brought inside today!
So much color in the yard. Trees are golden or red. Perennials are colorful, as well. Some are yellow. Many are brown. Many are decorated with beautiful seed heads.
Some plants are still blooming:
Autumn Clematis Some kind of salvia/sage. I think it is Salvia puberula ‘El Butano’
Yellow leaves of a Kwazan Cherry
All this seems like a good reason to make simple popovers!
I was cruising all the clearance end caps at Target one day and found a popover pan for $6.00. The recipe was simple.
1.5 tablespoons of melted butter
1.5 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
3 large eggs
1.5 cups of milk
Allow ingredients to warm to room temperature. Mix ingredients and pour into buttered pop over pan that has been preheated in the oven for a few minutes. Only fill the pans half-full. Cook for 30 minutes. The pop overs will pop out of the pan as they rise. They are very light and fluffy.
Welcome to Fall!
