March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

Poppin' In with Popovers

Good Morning Folks -
I intended to share this recipe last Saturday, but it didn't happen then or later.  First, I had some family stuff I needed to attend to - nothing earth-shattering just day in day out stuff like registering for spring sports and going to the grocery store.  Then we had company which was so much fun but definitely kept me from wasting time in front of my computer.  Lastly, I got a cold.  Friends, I have never been knocked off my feet with a cold like I have this week.  I get a cold a couple of times a year just like the rest of you.  Typically I can persevere and carry on with life.  Not this week!  I've been miserable and completely unproductive.  I've taken every opportunity to cuddle up on the sofa or crawl into my bed.  Sad but true...  My children and husband have been wonderfully supportive, and I think I'm on the mend.  Thank goodness because my house is a disaster and we've got a party to prepare for.

Okay, now for the recipe.  Are you stuck in a breakfast rut?  Are you looking for something simple, fun, and tasty?  If you answered yes to any of the above then this recipe is for you!
Poppin' Popovers
3 eggs
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup flour
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray the muffin tine with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, beat eggs with a whisk.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Stir until the mixture is smooth.  Pour mixture into prepared pans until each cup is about 2/3 full.  Bake 25 - 35 minutes or until your popovers are puffed up and golden brown.  Remove from the pan and serve warm.

Good on their own but you could add butter or jam.  We want to try the recipe again and add crumbled bacon and grated cheese prior to cooking.

So, while the popovers were in the oven, I sent the big three upstairs to get dressed.  This is how the boys came downstairs.  One four year old was particularly excited.  He came running into the kitchen saying, "They {the shorts} say 4 so I can wear them."
