AROUND THE HOUSE
Today has been a slow day. It started off busy, according to schedule, and before I knew it, I was done with everything. Now, I still have to clean the kitchen from dinner, but we’re chilling out right now. We have a super busy day tomorrow and I am going to take a little time just to spend with my Beanster. So, we’ve kicked back and we’re watching a Charlie Brown movie, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”
We have a great health food store in town and I love getting their organic popcorn kernels. I toss in some olive oil, a pat of butter, and 1/3 C. of kernels and shake away, covered, over medium heat. When it’s nearly done and barely popping, I turn it down to low and shake a little more. When it is done, I take the lid off really quickly so that the steam doesn’t drop on it, then toss it in a bowl and lightly salt it. So far, everyone likes it. You can actually tell what popcorn tastes like! And, you can control what goes into it! It takes just as long to make, but you do have to clean up the pan….
I love these times we can spend together just enjoying being together and doing something fun! Peace and love, everyone. Have a great weekend!
