Friday Favorites Closet

what is your "go-to" food? (okay, i know i was going to stay away from food for favorites day, but what can i say, i'm a loser?)

what is it that you turn to when you are hungry, standing in the kitchen, and completely stumped on what you're going to eat for a late night/midday snack? what is it that always ends up being just what you wanted when you didn't know what you wanted?

i doesn't matter what my mood, i always turn to popcorn. i eat it almost daily (hope my dentist doesn't read this). and yes, i've become a popcorn snob. it ticks me off when i buy popcorn at the store and pop it only to find it's stale. GRRR! and i'm all about WHITE popcorn vs. yellow (although yellow pops up bigger if you're making candied or caramel popcorn)

i pop mine in an air popper. then i spray with canola oil, sprinkle with Johnny's popcorn salt and spritz a little bit of "i can't believe it's not butter" spray as i toss. in my "guilt doesn't exist" world, i would pop in Orville Redenbacher's butter oil, sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with real butter :P. and don't even get me started on how yummy the popcorn is at the movie theater... you know the kind they must pop in liquid gold and pepper with diamonds?

popcorn, i just love you.

how do you do popcorn?

I love microwave kettle corn or popped on the stove in oil with a little salt sprinkled on when it's done. Yum! Too bad it's 11 o'clock at night or I would totally make some!
