For today’s Creative Kids my little sister, Josie and I get creative with cooking!
The title of today’s post was going to be “Yorkshire Pudding is Not Pudding” but I changed it at the last minute 😉
I first heard about Yorkshire Pudding on Catherine Johnson’s blog (click HERE to read the post). When I read about it on Ms. Johnson’s blog, I asked my mom if we could make it and she said “yes” (but then I never got around to it).
I then found a cookbook called “Mary Poppins in the Kitchen: A Cookery Book with a Story” and I read it and guess what!?!? It had a recipe for Yorkshire Pudding in it! In fact, the book is pretty cool. It is seven chapters long, one chapter for each day of the week and it talks about the story behind what Mary Poppins makes for the family’s meals each day. Then there are recipes for each of the menus at the end of the book. The illustrations in the book are very nice too and I think it makes a great story book. Josie and I decided to be creative and make a Mary Poppins dinner of our own!
We chose to make Monday’s meal. Here’s is a part from the book –
“What are we cooking today, Mary Poppins? Jane wanted to know.
“Roast Beef,” said Mary Poppins. “And Yorkshire pudding to go with it and just a suspicion of cabbage.”
We also added mashed potatoes and gravy to go with it because Josie wasn’t sure she would,like Yorkshire pudding.
Our mom made the roast beef and mashed potatoes and Josie and I made the Yorkshire pudding and cabbage.
Well the results are in and our dinner came out great and everyone liked our Yorkshire pudding and cabbage (and mom’s roast beef 😉 )!
Our Dad was confused about the Yorkshire pudding though. He was expecting pudding –
Josie and I thought it was fun to cook a different food! What is your favorite food from a country different from the one you are living in?
Mine is sushi and Josie’s is Mexican food!
