Did you know that January 19th was National Popcorn Day? I kinda had a feeling when I noticed a slew of tempting popcorn recipes that had popped up into my Google Reader feed. Hehe, no pun intended! :)
I love popcorn! But for me, it’s one of those snacks that I rarely get to indulge in. I love the convenience of microwave popcorn, but I hate the after effects…the bloating, the grease, the ughh-why-did-I-eat-that feeling. I also love going to my local farmer’s market and buying a bag of kettle corn, but OMG have you guys seen the size of those things?! They are ginormous! And of course, I feel bad for only being capable of eating two big handfuls, le sigh. I’m sure you all know how I feel :)
Anyways, are you ready to ditch those bags of microwave popcorn sitting in your kitchen pantry for these delicious but easy alternatives?
