Express Yourself Weekly Meme--In Praise of Popcorn

Popcorn, it's gotta be popcorn.

If I've got enough money to go sit in a theatre and watch a movie, then I need to have enough money for at least a small popcorn as well. As far as I'm concerned, it just isn't a going to the movie experience without the popcorn.

At home we snack a lot on popcorn as well. We buy it in bulk from Amish farmers about an hour from our house, so it is always fresh and we have very few unpopped kernels. We cook it on the stove, in a particular frying pan, a  25 year old Farberware that my husband and I received as a wedding present. We put in canola oil and 3 kernels, then wait for them to pop before we put in the popcorn.  Usually we put the finished product into a huge metal bowl, add the butter and salt, then everyone takes what they want.

Popcorn is a wonderful snack, inexpensive, easy to make, and if you don't go crazy with the salt and butter, pretty healthy too.

There's really got to be popcorn, if you want to watch movies with me.
