Air Pop Popcorn

We made air pop popcorn for snack today. It is nothing new, we probably do this once a month or so, but it is fun. Angela likes to grump a bit because there is no butter but she eats it down just as fast as Connor and I. I like it because it takes me back to my youth. More excitingly, I like it because of the kid's faces. Watching the anticipation as the kernels are moving around, waiting for them to POP. Then once they start to pop and fill up the chamber, their eyes get so huge and they start shouting "yeah" and "hooray" etc. It is pure joy and wonder! What could be a better way to spend our afternoon.

I read this a while ago, but am responding today...it reminded me of what we've been doing lately. We've been watching the Harry Potter movies before we saw the 6th one yesterday, so I've been making strawberry-banana smoothies and popcorn for all of us. I bought the big bag of frozen whole strawberries from Costco (so cheap compared to Safeway!) and during the process of cleaning the cupboard, found three packages of strawberry smoothie drink mixes. Yeay!! Calvin loves them!
