Take that, Orville.

October 6, 2007

Cooking, Journal, Lauren

I ran out of microwave popcorn bags a while ago. Rats. I really love popcorn. Seriously, I think I have a problem. No day is so bad that a beer and a bag of popcorn can’t erase it from your memory. Anyway, I discovered that I had a jar of actual popcorn that we used this summer in school. Did you know that you can throw a palmful or two in a lunch sack, fold it up tight, and microwave it as-is? Just take it out when the pops start slowing down, just like the other kind. The beauty of this is that I can slather it with butter (a reasonable slather – I’m not crazy), and feel good about putting actual butter in my gut, not some unpronounceable crazy fat. Yum!

Hee hee hee.  So cheap.

I’ve used this bag eight times. I’m going for a record.

Get that butter melted!

    You should put a stick of butter in the bag with the popcorn while you’re cooking it. That way it would come out pre-buttered. Or it would come out on fire. Either way would be cool.

    What does the bowl say under the popcorn? “Nothing so nice as a beer & a bag of popcorn.” ?

    I didn’t know that! I will most definately try this. But do the kernels pop nicely, ’cause I hate kernely popcorn.

    But my drug of choice for a bad day is milk & donuts or Tastykakes!!!

    Have you tried licking the inside of the bag when you are finished. I’m thinking Brad might like a report on that aspect of your invention.

    Which side up?
