How 'bout some popcorn

Yes, I believe I will...
...never buy store bought microwave popcorn again that is.
This was another "Pinterest" find and I must say I had my doubts yet again.  But of course IT WORKED!
All you need is:

1 plain brown paper lunch bag
1/4 cup regular popping corn

~Fold the bag over at the top twice and tape it shut.
~Lay it in the microwave and turn it on for 2 minutes or until you hear that the popping has slowed to about 1 pop every 3-5 seconds.
~Remove from the microwave and add any topping you choose and enjoy right there out of the bag. 
No mess no dirty dishes (unless you melt butter) 
The above instructions are for one serving, if you have 2, 3, 4, 5...people wanting popcorn they that's how many times you will have to run through the steps, but it is so much better than the stuff we have all been buying from the store it really is worth it.
I added about 3 teaspoons of butter and sprinkled some salt held the bag shut and gave it a good shake.  Turned out super delicious and it makes just the right amount.
My girls didn't even add butter, we had some popcorn seasonings in the cabinet that we had forgotten about and they just sprinkled that stuff on it.
Turns out my girls like popcorn without all the greasy nasty junk that the store bought stuff comes with. 
One more small step to being a little be more aware of what is going into our bodies and what isn't leaving out wallets.
This project gets a thumbs up from the Corley girls this week.
Give it a try and come back here and let me know how it went for you.

Next I will be trying the "best stain remover"  Caprice said it is amazing so I want to try it.  Heaven knows with 2 kids a husband and an indoor dog we have a few stains that need "removed" 

Keep coming back to see what crazy things I will be trying next.
