Lunch Box 615: Porky Yorkie


Back to the


Yorkie! Today's meal starts with my Mom's pork chops and associated bell peppers and mushrooms. This is very easy to make, and tastes very good. The Yorkshire pudding was a bit more of a challenge because they're just generally fiddly to make. Whipping the batter like mad, heating a drippings-filled pan, et cetera. They're best when hot and puffy, but I find I like them just as much after you microwave them; it changes the texture in a way I like. Oh, and instead of beef gravy I made these with turkey drippings. Yes, the Thanksgiving turkey is still with us. I'm beginning to think turkey doesn't have a shelf life, it has a half-life. Finally, I have spinach with mayonnaise and homemade an pan.

My first experience with Yorkshire pudding was when I visited Mom in England back when I was in college. She made some "Yorkies," and said they came out all wrong, because they were so rubbery they bounced when you dropped them. I don't know, I liked them anyway. I keep wanting to make a batch so she can try one and tell me if I got it right. At least they don't bounce.
