Tell that to the furry alarm clock. Normally she doesn't bark in the morning, even if we sleep til 8 or 9 after a late night flight home. But this morning promptly at seven the bark alarm went off. My husband let her out then she came back in
"Did she have to go?", I asked.
"No," he said. "She just wanted to lick the dew off the grass".
"Might as well get up and make something nice for breakfast", I said.
What are you going to make Mom?
Popovers. These are so worth buying a pan from Williams and Sanoma. They can be made in a muffin pan but won't be as high and fluffy. I've made them often enough I don't need a recipe but the recipe IS from my favorite vegetarian cookbook "The New Moosewood Cookbook".
Spray popover pan with non-stick spray.
In one bowl mix:
4 small or 3 large room temperature eggs (let sit out a bit or run under a bit of warm water)
1 and 1/4 cup milk or almond milk
1 and 1/4 cups flour (regular or King Arthurs gluten free adding 1/4 tsp xanthan gum if you do)
1/2 tsp salt.
Divide 3 Tablespoons of butter into six pieces. Place 1 in each popover cup. Place in oven to melt while you finish mixing (you will then remove the hot pan and place batter in it.
Mix wet and dry ingredients, whisking with a fork. Do not over mix. The batter will be lumpy but you shouldn't see globs of raw flour in it.
Do NOT peek, unless it smells like they are burning
You never give me PUP-overs. I'm calling the SPCA!
Put the phone down Abby, you can have a piece of the bacon.
