Sometimes you just need something sweet and crunchy. I’m talking about lay-on-the-couch and watch several episodes of your favorite show and be able to munch without shame or silverware. It’s been one of those days. Definitely a homemade caramel popcorn kind of day.
My purse was stolen over the weekend just as we were leaving to spend a few days in Chicago celebrating Hubby’s birthday. Talk about a day of highs and lows. With no proof of my identity, no money, none of my medications, and without my beloved Michael Kors tote, I felt like a man without a country. Fortunately, I still had my phone, and my Hubby. I was set for a lovely weekend in the Windy City. We had a splendid time. (Side note: I happened to have a stack of business cards in my wallet with my email address and the address for my blog, so if whoever happens to have my wallet decides to investigate their victim, I hope they return my stuff and make themselves some popcorn
and choke on it.)
We usually get some Garrett’s caramel corn to eat on our train ride home from Chicago, but this time we were still so full from brunch that we didn’t bother. By the time we got home, I was wishing for some caramel corn. This homemade version hit the spot. I added in some peanuts and some Valentine’s Day colored m&m’s into some of mine, but if you’re a sports fan, you could add the colors your team for the Super Bowl game on Sunday.
