It looks like I haven’t been keeping you very well updated recently. Life has been a bit on the humdrum side, but very pleasantly humdrum. I had a lovely morning knitting and drinking tea with my friend Peggy, but I was so excited about her visit, our knitting, and the opportunity to serve popovers, that I utterly failed to take any pictures. I hadn’t made popovers in years, maybe even ten years or more, and I do love to eat them. What’s the problem? Not sure. I think it’s a matter of timing logistics. They take about 3 minutes to mix up, but over an hour for the oven to heat up (it has to be really, really hot) and then for them to bake. The guest has to be there and hungry when they come out of the oven, as their deliciousness lifespan is very limited. But the guest must not be so hungry that an hour is too long to wait. No problem when cooking for oneself, but who wants to eat a whole batch of popovers alone? Not I. So our knitting setting was perfect. We drank a bit of tea, knitted a bit, and then the popovers were ready! Buttery jammy goodness! Sigh, I do wish I had taken pictures of our popovers, our mittis, and us knitting.
Yesterday afternoon, I got to volunteer again at the annual Hunthausen Golf Tournament. I look forward to this every year, and feel like I am privileged to be there, rather than being a volunteer. It is always a gathering of lovely people in a beautiful setting, a delicious dinner, and a tiny bit of actual work. Such fun!
