My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

A bag of PopCorn is good for you.

I love Popcorn.
I cannot go to a movie theater without buying a BIG bag. Especially when I the nice looking young man behind the counter asks"" Would you like to get the Large size for a quarter more?"and of course if you buy the Jumbo size you can come back for a free refill... and "would you like butter on it?" Why of course I do..and lots please! I wonder though why do they do that to me? They must know I am a popcorn push over.
To be honest though I never buy that Jumbo free refill size... but I don't know why, except people already look at me with raised eyebrows when I walk away trying to balance that Large butter soaked bag , a Jumbo Dietcoke ( it was a quarter more too) a handfull of napkins as I realize that I am dropping tender popped kernals of popcorn and my movie ticket is with my husband and he has already entered the darkened doorway to the movie screen.

It's hard to believe a snack food that tastes so good can actually be good for you! With suggestions from organizations such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Dietetic Association (ADA), there's no doubt popcorn is a perfectly sensible snack. Does that mean good for a meal too? I think so..infact I do that often.. eat it for dinner..and always while watching a home movie...I have to share it though with "Buster" because he loves it too and he likes to catch it when I toss it to him a popped kernal at a time...so really I think a bag is a single serving.
I now buy it at the store in the 10 pack size or sometimes by the 24 pack. Why so much? because you never know when you will run out...and I don't have to pay that extra quarter for a bigger bowl and Buster will clean up any dropped on the floor.

We love popcorn here and we've found that we each have to have our own bag. I eat it for the fiber, he eats it because he can do it without breaking his diet..lol
Long live the amazing corn!! LOL
