Oh my gosh – It’s National Popcorn Day and I almost didn’t get my post up! Here in California, it’s a pretty big day with the San Francisco 49′ers playing in the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks. The hubs and I were in front of the tube watching the game play out when I realized that I hadn’t posted my popcorn recipe yet. It’s half-time now so I thought I could squeak out for a few minutes and share my game day snack with you.
Honestly, we’re not huge popcorn fans around here but I knew popcorn day was coming and I knew that the 49′ers might be in the championship so I looked for something that would be simple and fun. GORP (good ole raisins and peanuts) have always been a favorite of mine so I thought we might try to add some popcorn to the mix.
Just pop up some of your favorite popcorn and add whatever you like. I used about 4 cups of popped popcorn and about 1/2 cup of peanuts and 1/2 cup raisins. I reach for the peanuts/raisins and the hubs reaches for the popcorn so we’re a match made in heaven.
The game’s back on so I’d better head back … Go 49′ers!
