Popcorn first post for 2012!

Wow.  It has been WAY too long since my last post!
I see I still have 24 followers.
I'm guessing this is because it's a pain to delete people ;-)
Or maybe you were holding out hope that I just may one day decide to post again!

I have been busy.  VERY busy.  It's called .. a newborn.
I'm sure you understand (since most of you have kids!) although some of you have MORE kids than me and still manage to post most days - SHEESH how DO you DO IT?!

Anyway, like I said, I've been busy - too busy even to be reading YOUR posts which is shocking!  I miss having time to sit back and have a good nosey at all the cool ideas and stories you all write about .. but that explains why I haven't been commenting on your posts!

I have managed a couple times to read over your stuff - but it's a very rare occasion.  In fact I have to pause writing this because newbie is whinging for some more milk ..


..and is now half-napping on my shoulder (one handed typing is so much slower!).
So I'll cut this ramble short. 
I just found out a great 'new' invention - popping popcorn in bags in the microwave, but not the store-bought kind!  It's much healthier!  You can put whatever toppings you want on - or none at all!
Get a paper bag.

(mine weren't square-bottomed - I got a pack of 100 Homebrand ones for a few $ from Countdown)

Add a couple Tablespoons of popcorn kernels.

Fold the edge over 3 times and microwave for 3min, or until the popping stops :-)


So easy and much healthier AND sooo much cheaper than store-bought bags!

(note - this is probably old news to a lot of you since I found quite a few sites with this info on .. but it was new news to me so thought I'd share anyway!)

Hope this year is treating you well so far :-)

  1. We do this but just use two bowls :) put the kernels in the bottom, 1 the same size to keep the heat in and voila... Yummy popcorn! Great idea though xo
