Did you know…

Did you know that June is almost over? How can this be?

Did you know that we are heading to Maryland this weekend?

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

The other night when Brady and I were watching No Strings Attached – cute movie – we were both dying for some popcorn. Since we hadn’t yet gotten our microwave, we had no way to cook a pouch of deliciously sweet and salty popcorn. I immediately went searching for our air popper, which was nowhere to be found. This caused slight panic, but then I came up with a solution. Attempt popping it on the stove.

I layered my pot with enough kernels to cover the bottom of the pan.

Cook the kernels on med-high heat until they start to pop.


Once a few start to pop, start vigorously shaking the pot back and forth until the kernals are all popped. This will keep them from sitting on the bottom of the pan and burning. It’s wise to keep the lid on during this process!:)

Soon you will have this lovely sight:


A few sprays of butter and some salt and pepper and you are good to go!

Enjoy! Watch for lots coming up on the HH. This weekend we have a:
