Anyway...every Tuesday she has a gathering called Kitchen Tip Tuesdays. Most weeks I try to join in, and I wanted to share something simple that we love:
Popcorn! Why? For 15 dollars at Walmart we purchased this hot air popper a few years ago. I love that it doesn't use anything besides hot air to cook the corn. Even more I like that we have no cancer causing chemicals to inhale by way of microwave popcorn! I'm becoming a little obsessive about using natural foods these days.
So here's what I love about popcorn:
- Whole grain
- can make tons of different flavors (try our Caramel Corn recipe!)
- fun kid snack
- CHEAP, especially when made this way
When we were in Law school (by we I mean my husband :) whenever food money was scarce I loved the comfort of our Sunday treat of hot popcorn. Our other favorite penny-pinching comfort food was homemade bread (will be posting more on that in the coming days).
Do you love home popped popcorn? What makes it special?
