A visit from the popcorn queen


So, my little sister (Callie) has pretty much grown up on popcorn (maybe that is how she stays so thin). I am telling you, as long as I can remember from childhood, this girl could eat a whole bag of popcorn by herself and loved it every time (even if it was once or twice a day). Callie would have popcorn pretty often back in the day but since college I would say she is on the "popcorn everyday plan". She was really big into the microwave popcorn but in the last year she has started making her own popcorn.

Callie got a stove top popcorn popper that you stir with the handle and this girl has perfected the art of popcorn making. She adds only a certain amount of oil, butter and salt to go on a certain amount of popcorn. You know how you can get it too salty or too much butter, not this girl, PERFECT!!!!
Yesterday Callie agreed to stop by and make me her famous popcorn along with a cold coke (or Coca cola Classic as the popcorn queen says). It was the best and hit the spot, thanks Callie!!!! You can come over anytime and make it again.

I love real popcorn too, not the microwave stuff. And you know I love cold Coca Cola Classic! You know what you need to try next? Cut a piece of cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese) and plot it right in the bowl while the popcorn is still warm. It doesn't melt, but you take a couple bites of popcorn and a then a bite of cheese. It may sound a little bizarre, but it is heavenly. Someone told me about it a few years ago and I have never turned back. Delicious!
