Encyclopedia: P

P is for Popcorn

When I was younger my Dad was gone quite often on Sunday's after church because he had meetings he had to attend. Mom didn't want to cook a big fancy dinner for just us kids 9who can blame her), and also felt that Sunday was a day of rest, and so she would make us air-popped popcorn after church for a snack. It was quick and easy, and we all loved it!

It is a tradition Elliott and I have adopted for Sundays after church. Popcorn for a snack, and then Elliott makes pancakes for dinner. Yum!

This past Christmas, one of Elliott's clients gave us this chocolate covered popcorn. At first I wasn't sure I would like it, but once I started it was hard to stop eating it. it was so good!

A few weeks ago, I had some chocolate chips that I was using to make cookies, and I ate a handful an then had a handful of popcorn afterwards. It made a great combination, and I think tomorrow I might run out to get some M&M's to combine with the popcorn, just for a little treat!

Chocolate sounds good with popcorn.

That looks so good. As much as I enjoyed the popcorn I really missed those big roast beef dinners! Heaven knows Mom needed a break though!

I wonder if you could make your own chocolate covered popcorn?
