Many thoughts swirling in my head today but nothing concrete and today’s #NaBloPoMo prompt didn’t do it for me so I am going with another daily prompt.
Today’s FMS Photo A Day Prompt for Day 4 – Can’t live without…POPCORN! my snack of choice for almost my whole life. (I am also a big fan of corn too and love corny jokes.)
Toppings of choice: Butter but sometimes olive oil in a mister
- Butter, Parmesan cheese (introduced to me by one of my eldest sister’s friends) and Cajun spices.
- Bacon salt – sometimes with maple sugar for a bit of savoury sweet
- Lime Citrus salt + finely ground black pepper
- Olive Oil infused with garlic and rosemary
I have had my popcorn maker since I was 17 years old. A good ol’ Proctor Silex, when small appliances didn’t break down after 2 years. It has moved across the country with me to Montreal and back home to Vancouver. Part of the reason why I have never “upgraded” to a fancy new model is nostalgia. Popcorn and iced tea was always on the menu when my best friend and I got together for our all night (and I mean all night) gab sessions through high school and university.
Do you have an all time favourite snack? Does it tie in with any special memories?
