To the people out there popping their own popcorn on their stovetops, I commend you, you know what's good. To the people who still use microwavable bags, there's nothing wrong with that but you're missing out. Tom and I are diehard committed to popping our own popcorn. We even have our own secret ingredient that I want to share with you today...
We pop our popcorn in bacon grease. Crazy, right? It's definitely not the healthiest way to do it but the result is delicious. There's no need for melted butter, just sprinkle a little bit of salt and you've got the tastiest popcorn ever. And nothing goes better with popcorn than the perfect thing to watch on TV.
Last week, my friend McKenna, who's like a little sister to me, was visiting from North Carolina and stayed the night with us. We were up way past my bedtime, talking, when she turned on Netflix to Iliza: Elder Millennial. It's a fun hour of stand up comedy about Iliza Shlesinger's life at 35 and what it's like to be an older millennial. For all my fellow millennials, this is one comedy show to watch. I laughed so hard that night and for the next few days after.
I'm a twenty-something mama who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embracing it and documenting it here.
