Blue Popcorn


My kids wanted blue popcorn yesterday. I was hesitant because I end up eating so much of it. I love the stuff, but is just doesn't go well with the diet. But I figured I would do it anyway, since I am such a good mom. I also justified me eating it because I would be burning so many calories while I made it. I used the stove top popcorn popper, which you have to continuously turn by hand. It is sad, but my arms were tired when I finished.And guess what? Andrew was the only one that ate the dang popcorn! Aiden and Oakley said the blue hurt their teeth. Ugh. I ask myself again, why do I make things for my kids when they won't even eat it? Now there is that much more for me to consume, because I can't be wasteful and throw it away....right?

Yum! I haven't had that pop corn since we were young! I'll have to get the recipe from you as well because after all these years I don't think I would remember how to make it.

Your kids are so random with what they will and won't eat! I love your TV on your wall in the background. That must be new since last time I was there! I'm sure Trent had more to do with that then you, so tell him I really like it! I CAN'T wait to see you tomorrow! ALOHA!

Amy-
It was so fun to go to the open house last night and hang out. I love the Young Women's program. We have such great leaders. I love all your cute posts and pictures. your kids crack me up. They are so funny. I love the hair cut too by the way. I did think it was Jennifer Aniston in your kitchen. It totally caught me off guard. :) I hope you guys have a great time in Maui. Good luck on the plane. We'll be thinking of ya'll while we are here in the cold.

I have an Olympus E-500. I looked an a Canon Rebel but it was overpriced in my opinion and the camera was on sale with an extra lense.

I love the popcorn picture. You could frame it and sell it at the pottery barn or something. It would look good in a kitchen.

I've never had blue popcorn. I love that the blue was what hurt their teeth. That is such a kid-ism.
