Things I Love Thursday - Part 26


I eat popcorn for dinner at least twice a week.  We have one of these magical inventions:
Which is called a Whirley Pop and yes, it's easy to make in a regular pot on the stove, this is a luxury for me to have this baby which helps make it better ALMOST every time. 

I can't really do microwave popcorn these days, it's not natural and it doesn't taste as good as stove made popcorn.  Little oil, little salt, done.  Boom. 

There are times I sprinkle Nutritional yeast on my popcorn.  I didn't believe it at first, but it actually tastes kinda like Parmesan cheese on there and it's super good for you. 

The problem is I had to go to stupid Whole Foods to get the stuff and you know how I'm not a big fan of Whole Foods.  I always feel like they are waiting for me to say or do something incredibly stupid in there.  Which, let's face it, I usually do.  I dropped a whole watermelon last Summer, and I know they've had it out for me ever since.

Why the hell am I so smiley on a "Wanted" poster?

But I digress, this is about popcorn.  I truly think that  whoever first popped a kernel of corn should have a holiday named for them.  Sadly, I bet Mr. Popcorn Guy would get a lot more response than some of the other people we have holidays for. 

I still get excited when they start popping.  Think about that for a second.  A tiny kernel of corn pops into a glorious pillow of deliciousness instantaneously in front of our eyes.  But if I open the lid and try to watch, as I have done 7,495 times, I get a hot splat to the face.  Doesn't stop me.  I think it's miraculous. Just you try to stop me from trying to watch that bitch pop.

I LOVE POPCORN.  And I'm not afraid to show it.  Is this too much?

Or what about this?
Classy popcorn ring. 

STD in ring form anyone?

Ahhhhh.  That's just right.  If I were to wear food rings, which of course I would because I am now obsessed with the ring below that I found yesterday on Pinterest. 

Not just a salad ring, but THIS salad ring. It's so beautifully rendered. 

I'm so grateful my husband didn't propose using any kind of food as a prop.  I would still be trying to poop that ring out.  No time to dilly dally, especially when it comes to popcorn.  GET IN MY MOUTH IMMEDIATELY.


  1. Before I read this, I had a sneaking suspicion my son would love you to pieces.

    After reading this, I know you would love each other over lots of pieces of "popcorns."

    So sweet reading this and imagining this awesome combination of popcorn and people!

  2. someone at Whole Foods talked me into buying Fish Oil to add that healthy something special to my popcorn...umm... i would stick with the yeast flakes.

  3. Have you ever popped real popcorn in the microwave? Just put a 1/4 cup in a brown bag, zap for 2:20 and voila! Microwave popcorn with out the fake butter and stuff :)

  4. You. Me. Popcorn. Let's do it.

  5. I knew you were too awesome to be true! I have a popper like that, too! I've used it so much (mine had an acrylic viewing window which eventually bit it) that it falls apart on the reg and I have to rebuild it with baling wire, gum wrappers, and dry ice. Wait, that's MacGuyver, I just use aluminum foil. I have organic popcorn on my Amazon subscribe and save and we eat popcorn all.the.time.

  6. Oh my, I always try to watch popcorn pop. And hearing the nutritional yeast thing from you makes it a little more believable. I'll try it some day.

  7. I lovvvve good as it smells the night that we make it for a movie..that's how BAD it smells the next morning coming down to make coffee! lol xo
