Pop your snack

Happy Monday everyone! Did you enjoy your weekend?  I was woken up by crazy thunderstorms, lighting and rain pounding on my window. What is even crazier is Friday night there was a snowstorm! Midwest weather is the best…

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Tonight I have a simple and great snack. Popcorn! I love this stuff and I am not talking about microwave popcorn. I am talking about fresh, popped popcorn. It is simply the best.

It is so simple and I believe it tastes much better than the popcorn in a bag, but those are nice in a pinch.

This is what you need.


About ¼ cup of oil, I use canola
½ cup of popcorn kernels

Add oil to a large pot, cover and heat. Test the oil by throwing in a few kernels, when they pop add the rest of the kernels and cover, leaving the lid a little ajar. When the kernels start popping, shake the pot to make sure the popcorn doesn’t burn. When the popping slows down, take off the heat, add to a large bowl and enjoy.

If you want you can add salt or butter, but I think the oil gives it great flavor and I use a pinch of salt. If you want you can make different versions. Put in whatever spice you want when you put in the kernels and follow the rest of the directions. This is a great snack and would be perfect for any game day or the Super Bowl!
