I’m quite the NFL fan & look forward to the Superbowl every year. On the down side, after today I will have nothing to do on Sundays but I’ll find something, I’m sure. Hockey? Nap? Yeah something.
But we still have the game today, peeps! I’ve never been a Packers fan because I loathe Brett Favre with a heat that I can’t explain. I went to law school in Wisconsin and while it was the worst 2.5 years of my life for many reasons, one of them was the Favre worship that was so pervasive. When he left the Packers, I started paying attention and when I saw the soulful blue eyes of Aaron Rodgers, well, I was okay with the Packers. So I am rooting for them to win today (also, I can’t stand Ben R & the Steelers).
As they usually do, my friends Brent & Angela are having a Superbowl party! Unexpected snow canceled my dinner plans for last night (watching bad shark movies and eating fish themed food…I missed chummed Jello and I’m kinda pissed off at Old Man Winter right now) so I will be bringing lox & bagels and Phish food to their party, but I will also be bringing this:
Pop some popcorn on your stove or in your popcorn maker. The recipe that I used called for 3 quarts but yeah, like I’m gonna measure the shit. Just fill the bowl and go with it. Add some sort of nuts. I used peanuts.
Melt 1/2 c honey, 1/2 butter & 1 t vanilla and then pour onto your popcorn/peanut mix. Spread onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes at 350. You should flip the popcorn at about the 5 minute mark, lest it burn.
That’s it! Easy peasy and yummy to boot.
I am also making Peach Chutney today, but I won’t be bringing it to the party because it isn’t quite cooled yet. I will let it cool, freeze it and serve it at my summer-themed party on March 12th. I also plan on cherry pie for that party (using cherries that I canned this summer) & possibly a blueberry pie as well. So in other words, mark your calendar bitches 🙂 🙂
