Microwave Popcorn.

Ok, so here's a little tip for Works for me Wednesday:

I really like popcorn. I think those microwave packets are too expensive, and not very good. I don't like to do it on the stove. It turns out tasty, but it's a little too dangerous for me, and I don't have a pot big enough. I love air popped popcorn, but I don't have room in my teeny tiny kitchen for a big ol' air popper.

So, I have a great solution. I buy the regular bag of popcorn kernels and pop them in the microwave. Did you know you don't need one of those silly microwave packets to make great microwave popcorn? You can put your kernels in a small paper bag or a container with a lid (for less waste) and turn on the microwave for about three minutes. Now, most people probably don't like plain popcorn like I do, so there's this great stuff called popcorn salt. It's tasty, you can use a little or a lot, and it lasts a long time.

We especially love popcorn this time of year with a little mug of milk or hot chocolate alongside. What a treat for an afternoon or evening snack.

I got a wild idea not too long ago..this restaurant that makes KILLER fries uses seasoned salt on them...hmm So I put a few sprays of butter & then seasoned salt on my popcorn when it was done..YUM-O!

Wow what a great money saver tip! I wonder if they sell popcorn salt here in the Netherlands too, or else I'll have to ask my American family to send me some!
Thanks for sharing.
