Today is Winnie the Pooh Day the day to celebrate every one's favorite bear on the birthday of his creator A.A. Milne.
Of course Winnie is actually a real bear who belonged to Milne's son Christopher Robin and inspired his fathers stories. However, what lots of people do not know is that the real Winnie the pooh along with Eeyore, Piglet, and Tiger are in the custody of the New York Public Library and reside in a glass case at Stephen A. Schwarzman building on 5th Ave and 42nd St. This is a bit of a shock to those of us who have read the classic Pooh stories and know how resoundly British Pooh is, and to make matters worse the library claims Pooh and his friends are as happy now as they were in the 100 acre wood, as if! Thankfully there is a petition you can sign to return Pooh and his friends to their homeland.
In honor of Winnie the Pooh Day we decided to make Popovers for Piglet a recipe from the classic Pooh cookbook which was published in 1969. It was a big hit with the hippies who must have appreciated Poohs laid back philosophy of "doing nothing."
