And one more thing...

I had to make another post today in praise of fresh popped popcorn! Ryan and I panicked tonight when we discovered we were out of microwave popcorn...but then I remembered the canister of kernels left over from when my sister was here and had insisted on fresh popped popcorn. It always seemed like too much trouble, so we never made it after she left, but there it was tonight...what joy, and it was perfect! We laughed that we made waayyy too much -- and then proceeded to eat the entire bowl. A light sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of real butter. Mmmm. Just the way that genius Mr. Redenbacher meant it to be:)


  1. A "light" sprinkle of salt? A "drizzle" of real butter? More like a blizzard and a tsunami :). And worth every stomach twang to follow!

  2. Haha! This is great :) Honestly, fresh popped popcorn is literally one of my favorite things on earth, and will always make my day a little happier :)
    Off to make my own bowl now...

  3. We love popcorn popped in a big pot. We use coconut oil and sprinkle with salt and nutritional yeast (It taste a lot like butter and we get in some extra vitamins. The kids don't know the difference).
