Tuesday, December 15

Hi there! Today was our second day of holidays and I promised because it was $2 Tuesday at the DVD shop that it was going to be a movie day which was perfect because I still need to get some sewing done. When we have a movie day we close all the blinds and get comfy and eat popcorn. Miss 5 asked today whether she could have caramel popcorn and remembering I had a recipe I was happy to make it for them. I just love Donna Hay and her kids issue magazine. I remembered in one of my copies that there were some recipes for flavoured popcorn and so found the caramel recipe. This is the recipe for the caramel I used:

Combine 2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup golden syrup, 40g butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 teaspoons of water in a saucepan over low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes. Stir through popcorn.

It was very sweet, sticky and a bit messy but they enjoyed it all! And with my lovelies enjoying watching their DVD's I was able to finish the bag that I started last week so it can go into the mail for Christmas, yeah! The other exciting news in our house was that Miss 5 lost her first tooth last night! She woke to some gold money and a special little gift because it was her first tooth, gee that means that she is growing up!:( Have a good day tomorrow and I hope to see you soon.

  2. That popcorn sounds yummy. It's very similar to a recipe I make with chex mix and popcorn!

  3. Yay!! Miss D just lost her second! Exciting and scary at the same time. Yummy pop corn, do you use normal pop corn or bag? xox

  4. Popcorn looks yummmmmmmy!! Love that bag... I really need to learn to sew! Congratulations to Miss 5 on the loss of her first tooth! :)

  5. A movie day sounds like a splendid idea. And that popcorn just makes it even more perfect!
