To be honest, I feel super guilty for not posting lately. Being back at work and having little to no time for anything really exciting or out of the ordinary to happen, makes it hard to get inspired. We considered doing a daily blog post of 'how we feel about what we are thinking'...but the thought of that makes me want to...well...its not going to happen.
But just for kicks here is a recap of Thursday 4th September 2012...
a snooze sesh till 6:40, at which point T's alarm clock rings and he magically jumps out of bed...(I continue snoozing until the guilt kicks in/I start smelling the coffee...)
7:00 - Barely awake we eat breakfast...and what T likes to call 'lolly gag'...Because by 7:15 we find ourselves still in pjs...
7:30 we are dressed and out of the house..I can't tell you how it happened...The last 15 min are a blur*
* This is a well developed routine that somehow works out every morning without fail...we leave the house by 7:34 (LATEST) all ready to go. (except when I forget my phone...watch...tube card...)
I wont get into the work day...Kids are kids...A morning of Maths/ Literacy...an afternoon of sewing with 8 year olds and before you know it, school is done and you have 90 books to mark...yay!
At home...T is pissed because his indoor soccer shoes have once again not been delivered...
side note...We are dealing with a bit of a conundrum...Our main door downstairs has been fixed and is therefore locked unless you have a special key thing. This is great for security purposes no doubt BUT, it makes it impossible for the delivery guys to get our online shopping to us...:S..Two weeks now and 6 attempts.
So, to brighten the mood and to give us something to munch on we decide to make popcorn...and well, document the process for blogging purposes (lame...)
I hate reading recipes that exclaim how SIMPLE AND FUN the recipe is because frankly all I really want after reading the appealing title is the final product...not a kitchen covered with flour, egg shells and random sticky liquids that were absolutely necessary for the simple and fun experience.
SO...with no false promises...This is how we make popcorn.
|Pour vegetable oil (3-4 tbls) into a deepish pot...|
|Throw in 3-4 kernels, cover with lid, and put on stove (on high...they will pop faster...)|
|Once you hear your 3-4 kernels pop, take the deepish pot OFF the heat|
|While OFF the heat, add the rest of the kernels so they cover the bottom of the pot...|
|You'll know that your popcorn is done when you don't hear popping for 4 sec. Take the pot off the stove and TA-DAA!!! A whole pot of popcorn!!!|
