Guess who’s still without a functioning oven?
No, I’m not French. I’m too fat to be French. I do use Le Creuset, though, if that counts for anything.
But seriously, it’s beginning to get to me, this ovenless kitchen. I’m finding it difficult to get excited about new recipes, as it’s impossible to bring them to fruition. I’m finding it equally difficult to make dinner for the family, seeing as how a stovetop is pretty darned imperative to saute carrots, stirfry chicken, or make a pot of spaghetti.
Basically, it’s suckage.
I’ve made a lot of soup, thanks to my Westbend Versatility Slow Cooker. I’ve made a ton of grilled cheese, thanks to the Cuisinart Griddler. And I can still make popovers, albeit an unusual sized popover, in my Westbend Countertop Oven.
Thank goodness I have these things.
You and I both know I have a Popover Project to maintain, and come hell or high water, I am going to muster through.
This week’s installment comes in the not quite spring/not exactly winter variety. Gingered Peach Popovers with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Drizzle. The peaches call out for sunshine, the ginger warms you up. See? A little spring, a little winter. I don’t know about you, but this winter we’ve been having has been ridiculous.
The day I made these, 3-4 inches of snow fell, after a week of mild playground weather. The next day? Back to playground weather. It makes no sense, and I kind of wish it would just make up its mind. As long as it chooses spring.
Until then, I hope you’ll enjoy these popovers. I know we did!
