but it isn't....
i bought what very well might be the best after work treat maker* ever. it might also be my demise... we shall see.
the best thing - besides making the fluffiest popped corn and popping all but about six** of those kernels - is this. i can make kettle corn.
so yes, i am in trouble. but good, light, tender, sweet, crisp trouble.
i bought the popcorn at costco in the big-ass 8 pound jug. totally worth it - both the price and the size... bought the whirley-pop at target.com, and the dental floss picks at bartell's. i will soon be buying bigger pants at nordstrom rack.
1/4 cup oil (i know)
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup (or so... more usually) kernels
whirl until popped. put in bowl, sprinkle with salt. eat with abandon.
*ok, it has also been a dinner maker, and a lunch maker too. and a mid afternoon snack maker. and also a snack while babysitting maker.
**this time just four!
