{A BIG bowl of "love" popcorn}

do you want to know why this was the
best bowl of Popcorn
i have ever had?
do you?
do you?
well...........this was
the best
this popcorn was given to me
out of
kindness and love
by a very very dear
friend who knew
I was having a movie night
with my daughters
{the bag was humongous}
bless her sweet soul!
every bite
{ kettle corn from the Farmers Market...yum yum}
I thank you sweet Rosie
{ and so do my girls.......
poor hubby missed the joy as we ate the whole bag..not our fault! }
How do you like your popcorn?
I so love the sweet & salty kind
Kettle Corn
Chicago Style
{cheese & caramel mixed together...HEAVEN!}
happy new week


Dogwood said...

Pop corn is the best especially when it is given to you by a good, sweet, dear friend. Glad you enjoyed it. Yummy-yum.

Hi Koralee, I've never had Chicago Style, which sounds delish, but my new favorite is "Pepper" Corn. It has a subtle but yummy black pepper in the mix and once I get started then watch out, the whole bag is a goner! Hope you've had a great weekend!

Cornflakes and Honey said...

Scrumptious just not the same watching a movie without popcorn! How sweet of your friend.

I love toffee and peanut popcorn! Hope you had a great weekend! xx

Elyse said...

Cathie said...

i agree with Dogwood!
sounds like a wonderful girly outing.
enjoy your week Koralee ♥

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Oh Rosie, what a sweetie! Your movie night sounds perfect... and I loved your "to do list" for Saturday! Yesterday, while Chris was hiking {in the rain} I pulled over to an antique shop on my way home from grocery shopping... something I treated myself to! love that kind of rummaging and browsing through time...

Oh and one of my students made Tex-Mex popcorn with sprinkled chili/Taco seasoning on it...
It was incredible...
Enjoy the sunshine and these last few weeks of school!

What a happy picture! Love it. Kettle corn is my favorite.

Lori E said...

Good quality Kettle corn is so addictive. It is hard to find the good stuff. Cheese and caramel? I don't know about that one.

{stop in at the shop sometime this you left something behind :) }

Debbie said...

A big bowl of popcorn (sometimes sprinkled with parmesan cheese...sometimes Hy's Season Salt...sometimes just buttery with a touch of salt)anyway you like it = COMFORT.

Hi Koralee,

What a sweet bowl of popcorn and how lovely that it was given to you by a friend.
Glad you and your girls enjoyed the popcorn watching a movie.
I like my popcorn cooked with butter and salt.

Happy week

Amanda (Small Acorns) said...

Movie night with the girls - sounds fabulous! I don't think our popcorn sounds half as creative down in this part of the world - butter and salt is the only way I know. Think I could be missing out on much joy! Amanda xx

Val said...

I like popcorn cooked with sugar,and watch a movie with friends...

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Mmm kettle corn is the best! I do love popcorn pretty much anyway though! I love the sunny yellow bowl you have. So cute :)

jen said...

I just found your blog I think I've died and gone to heaven! As for popcorn Oh yah chicago style is Simply amazing I tried to bring some home from there but ended up eating almost all of it on the plane! But my favorite way to eat pop orn is "mochi popcorn" I grew up in Hawaii and we would bring bags of japanese arare rice crackers and toss it in the hot buttered popcorn so yummy! I still do it :) Have a great week I followed you so I wont loose this Fabulous blog!

Good morning, sweet Koralee. No popcorn for me. I have never liked it, nor sweet nor salty. But I do like your lovely picture, I almost would try popcorn again ;o) Hope your weekend with the girls was one to always remember.
A huge hug for a happy new week my friend. xxx XXX xxx

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

WOWO!!! My favorite, all time treat....I can eat popcorn like no one else, and my husband often says, "WHERE DO YOU PUT ALL THAT?" Heee.....the joy of having a high metabolism!!!! Hey, was this our dear, wonderful ROSIE? THEE ROSIE from Rutabagas? Give that woman a hug, and a big bear hug to you, dear, dear Koralee! Anita

Unknown said...

Hi Koralee!! I love cheese and caramel corn popcorn but I didn't realize it was called Chicago style...and I live near Chicago! Ha! It's just so common around here. So nice of your friend to think of you and your daughter :) Kettle corn is delish too!!

Have a lovely day!

Hugs ~

Hi Koralee,
What a Fun, Fun weekend you had! It sounds perfect! I love popcorn, and usually go to the movies because I want their popcorn! Lots of fattening butter and salt. Yum Yum!!! I just took my son to Karate Kid. It was really, really good.

Thank you for playing Friday Pretties.I am putting on a new linky today. I am playing around with it. I am going to try to keep a couple of people on who want to play every week. I am learning...

Have a wonderful Monday,

Unknown said...

sweet koralee,

first, your wise and kind comments meant
the world to me. i was certain someone
would castigate me. i completely agree that
we need to be better caretakers of the big
beautiful world that He created.

second, oh! popcorn from rosie? you are
really tempting me to jealousy. how i
would love to see the two of you together
in one sweet place.

Sweet and salt... It"s so delicious and so we go back in the past...

I'll take mine with butter and salt. Not too much of either. Just good old fashioned popcorn in a bowl with my Sweetie by my side. Oh, and we toss a few pieces to our dogs too.

Di said...

I know I have said this before but I love caramel....and of course caramel popcorn!

Pretty Zesty said...

I'm a sucker for cheeeeesy popcorn! garlic powder or curry power and a little salt is awesome too!

Privet and Holly said...

Koralee! My most favorite food ON THE PLANET is popcorn!!! And, I'm not choosy ~ I'll eat it any way you want to serve it to me....although, I have to admit, if calories weren't a concern, I'd also go for the Kettle or Chicago varieties! Many a night when Mr. P travels, the kids and I will have a "popcorn dinner," which means a movie and all the popcorn that we can eat. I'M usually the last one munching, on those nights : ) What a sweet picture of the stripy bowl ~ YUM!
xx Suzanne

Unknown said...

You just do not KNOW how alike we are!
Do you even know how much I love POPCORN!
I make my own popcorn!
I pop me some 98% ff jiffy pop and squirt it with ff butter.
THEN...I sprinkle this Kettle Corn powder on it!
It is so yummy!
And LOW FAT! yeah!
And I too love CHEESY popcorn!
Don't you just love to go to the movie and get a big ole thing of salty popcorn!
Oh...and I like to drop m&m's down in my movie popcorn and then they MELT!
How yummmmy does that sound?
