We’re still eating lots of salads. The cucumber we got was huge, so I’ve been slicing up bits of it at a time and chopping up some organic carrots to put in the salad, along with chives and the blue cheese. The boys are still enjoying it, and that’s all I can ask for!
Monday night I popped popcorn from the popping corn I got with my first delivery. I just put the husk in a paper bag and put it in the microwave. It didn’t start popping slowly like a grocery store bag of popcorn. After about a minute in the microwave, it made a HUGE pop! I think about half the cob exploded all at once. Then the rest of it started popping. Elliott had fun listening to it. It turned out really good – very white and fluffy.
But then I decided to kick it up a notch. I found a recipe for caramel popcorn online. It was really easy: butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt. Once the caramel was done, I poured it on the popcorn (what Elliott hadn’t eaten yet) and baked it for about 45 minutes. Much better than plain popcorn. It only lasted for a few days.
