Please pardon my recent absence from blogging. Since Monday I’ve been tending to three sick people. That’s right, I’ve been in a house full of sickies!
I’m happy to report that everyone is on the mend!
Cooking for people who have bad colds or worse is different than regular everyday cooking. When my family is sick I focus on the comfort foods they love. Soups, chili, baked fish and……
Recently, I began to make microwave pop corn in plain paper bags. There’s no oil, you control the portion and the toppings.
Here’s how I make it.
Take 1 paper lunch sack.
Add 1/8 cup of popping corn. I’ve got some fancy red and white corn.
Place the popping corn into the paper bag. Fold the top of the bag over 2-3 times.
Microwave for 1:30 to 2:00 minutes, for fancy corn. Longer 3:00-3:30 minutes for regular popping corn.
When the popping slows, remove the bag from the microwave and place the popped corn into a bowl.
Add salt or butter or whatever you like to the popped corn.
