I have become super haunted with making my own popcorn at home. Like, this is my go-to snack/dessert/lunch more days than not .
And I in truth, very love this nosh not only because it is delightful but because it ’ randomness wholly gluten-free, vegetarian-friendly, bare and easy and made without the practice of chemical-filled microwave popcorn from a base or an expensive popcorn popper that takes up way besides much board in your cupboard .
Because I don ’ thymine think my cupboards could handle another little kitchen appliance…
What movie night or even on the frame international relations and security network ’ t complete without a boastful bowl of popcorn ? Movies and popcorn, popcorn and television receiver – pretty much the perfect pair no matter how you look at it, right ?
I mean, the word “ movie-theatre ” ( yes, that is one discussion ! ) is reasonably a lot synonymous with a $ 12 bag of popcorn these days. ( pathetic ? Yes. Delicious ? Yes. )
But Friends, worry nobelium longer !
That movie theatre bite that was once a natural and fun, any-time-of-day nosh but has become a extremely salty, oil-loaded, juke butter trash food can be enjoyed by all no questions asked once again .
I had been complaining to J for the longest time about how I kept having these intense air-popped popcorn cravings, specially during our hebdomadally world television receiver dates. ( Because if reality television receiver bust feasts on the couch aren ’ metric ton romantic, I don ’ thymine know what is ! ) And how we need to go out and buy a popcorn popper promptly. Of run, our procrastinating selves never got around to actually purchasing a popper. And now with this extremely delightful popcorn hack we don ’ t need to !
Isn ’ t it great how life works out that way sometimes ? !
