Week 53 Thursday (1/15/15)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Yorkshire Pudding
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

I figured out that there are 96 calories per serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I always wondered what Yorkshire Pudding tasted like. Of course, I was under the misconception that it was a pudding, not a muffin like affair. I have read many a book that talked about a character eating Yorkshire Pudding for Christmas Dinner. It is an English dish.

These are the drippings from the prime rib
that are needed in this recipe

Here is the batter

They aren't what I would call beautiful,

but they are really good!

         This was very interesting to make. Who knew you saved the drippings from the Prime Rib and poured a small amount of scalding grease in the bottom of the muffin tin prior to adding in the batter? It seemed so crazy, but I followed Ree’s recipe to a tee. I actually liked this creation.
         I took a few over to Nicole Serpico, to get her opinion. She, like me, liked them, too. She kept trying to think of what it reminded her of. She came up with French toast. She is quite good at coming up with new ideas. She suggested I serve it at a brunch both with a meat as well as with syrup. I think this is a great idea! 
Way to go, Nicole.

Random Reflections

         I loved the show Family Classics with Frasier Thomas. I loved to listened to Frasier introduce the movie. One of my favorite movies was called Snowfire. It was a wonderful movie about a wild, white horse. This animal was breathtaking and the story was great. Did you watch this show?  What was your movie?
Irksome Ideas and Images

         One of the things I hate about using the phone is the caller menus when I need to converse with a live person. Sometimes the choices don’t fit what you want, so what do you do?  I hit a button, and then asked to be transferred. I know it is cheaper to utilize machines, but I can’t say that it is better.
