Recipe Tuesday, Episode One

I've decided to make Tuesdays a special day to post recipes on my lovely little blog here. I love to cook, and at least one of my very few blogreaders does as well. A blogtastically belated Happy Birthday- you know who you are!

Today's recipe is Homemade Microwave Popcorn. It's delicious and nutritious!

You will need:

Raw popcorn
Brown paper lunch sack
Butter or margarine
Salt (regular or popcorn salt- kosher is too chunky)

Pour enough popcorn into the paper sack to cover the bottom. A little overlap is OK. Fold the top of the bag over once and staple twice. No, the staples will not spark or cause a fire in your microwave.

Flatten the stapled sack and lay it on its side in the microwave. Zap for as long as your microwave takes to pop a bag of corn, plucking the bag out when popping slows to a couple seconds between pops. (If you can smell burnt popcorn, it's too late. Start over.)

For you morons out there, watch out! It's hot and stuff! Don't burn your ignorant self on the staples or the steam!

Dump the corn into a bowl, drizzle with melted butter or margarine, and sprinkle liberally with salt.

Butter works better than margarine; margarine has a tendency to make the corn soggy because of its water content.

Now you have a tasty, healthy (and cheap!) afternoon snack that can even be made at work. Do like I do and keep a bag of corn with a stack of paper sacks in your desk.

Enjoy, but don't forget the toothpick to clean your toofs afterward.

Tee-hee-hee, is it me? Am I the birthday girl? Huh? Was it me????

Cool recipe. I may actually cook again some day. Far off in the future, when I actually have a minute to spare again . . .

I see your cousins finally completed the meme. 'Bout time. Losers.
