Due to the fact that Monday night\’s around our house are basically a national holiday, being Bachelor night and all…How about the perfect trash TV treat to go with it, eh? Eh?
I know it\’s ridiculous to how much I look forward to a scripted once in a lifetime romantic television, and I probably should end my night reading a book that will makes my brains all smarts n\’ stuff…But, like have you ever seen the Bachelor?! How could you not love it?! Everyone is emotional, drunk, bat shiz crazy, and after a day of messy kitchen\’s and back talking toddlers, it\’s just what I need.
Is that sad?
No, no It\’s not. Because today my 5 year old told me I was ruining her life because her pony tail was crooked.
BRING ON THE CRAZY!
The best way to watch the Bachelor in my opinion is with a group of girls. Everyone\’s dressed in yoga pants bringing forth delicious goodies, and we all pile together on a couch to judge other crazy women. I\’ve tried watching it at home with my husband, but he just mocks me. Especially during the scenes where the girls are in bathing suits…OH he just can\’t leave the room because he HAS to tell me how ridiculous this show is!
He doesn\’t get it.
It\’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, and people are working on themselves and really finding out who they are! Pure gold.
And trust me, I\’m pretty sure we would all find out who we really are as we traveled the world with our Boyfriend and his 16 other girlfriends. LIKE…Oh crap. I\’m awesome.
- 1/2 c. popcorn kernals
- 2 TB. coconut oil
- 1/3 c. coconut sugar
- Get a large baking sheet out and set aside. This will be used to pour the popcorn on once done.
- Add coconut oil, coconut sugar, and popcorn kernels to a stove top popper. Turn the heat on medium/low and stir the popcorn mixture together continuously. (This allows the coconut sugar not to burn.)
- As the popcorn begins to pop, continue to stir the mixture slowly until the popcorn begins to decrease to a slow pop.(If you open the lid, the popcorn will have made it\’s way to the top.)
- Pour the popcorn on the baking sheet, and spread it out. Let it cool, then enjoy!
- Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
This popcorn was amazing! The second It was ready to eat, I couldn\’t stop. I love the fact that it\’s made with a natural sugar, and there is a little bit of crunch and caramelization on there. I had this on the counter in a jar while family was in town and people could not get enough of it!
