I finally have a new Guy Food post for you, but first thing’s first…lunch.
For lunch today, I finished off our container of cottage cheese, had half of a roma tomato, a carrot, a celery stalk, and finished off the cauliflower.
For dessert, I had some “Fall Mix” that I look forward to my mom sending me every year around this time. It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, chewy and crunchy, and the simplest most classic mix to ever be created…Candy Corn and Salted Peanuts.
My mom always mailed me this treat in a fall package when I was in college, but this year I thought that since I am no longer in school I would have to make my own fall mix. Literally, on Friday I told Brian as we were driving to Fort Wayne for the wedding that I wanted to buy candy corn and peanuts to make fall mix this week. I went in my bedroom as soon as I got home to lay down all of my bags and there was a little canister of the tasty mix sitting right there! Boy, does my mom know me or what?!
On to guy food…
Guy Food: Homemade Popcorn
This is a treat that my mom taught me how to make. It isn’t something that we do often, but when we do pop our own corn there is something about it that makes it simply irresistible from continuously putting your hand in the bowl.
- About 2-3 Tbsp of corn, vegetable, or canola oil
- About 1/3 cup of unpopped popcorn
- Salt to taste
- Melted margarine or butter if desired
- Other mix in options: Season salt, parmesan, sriracha, m&ms, chocolate chips, peanuts, basically anything you can imagine!
- I LOVE anything pumpkin, my mom’s Fall Mix, and apple cider
