"tings are cool mon."

okay. this is me: tonight, i ate a piece of flatbread rubbed with garlic and butter around 5:30. now i'm having a strawberry/blueberry smoothie with flaxseed meal. at 11. this is actually good for me when i'm alone (and no grocery shopping has been done for 3-4 days). when brian gets home, i hope he'll want to join me for beer and popcorn. actually, if he doesn't want popcorn, that's just for for me! ha HA! popcorn is my new snack sensation. faithful readers of my other blog know that i have a deep-seated love for tings. that love has not died. my acceptance of foil bags has. lovely popcorn - you can make as much or as little as you want, it comes in bulk, it's easy to adjust the fat and salt content, and it's good with nutritional yeast. a few months ago, i was on those 100-calorie microwave bags. bad news. here's a choice quote from wikipedia: In 2006, concerns were raised about the levels of perfluorooctanoic acid in popcorn bags. The high temperatures used in popping popcorn may facilitate the transfer of the chemical, which is carcinogenic in animals, into the popcorn oil. DuPont has agreed to eliminate almost all use of the chemical by 2015. um, if i were you, i wouldn't wait. just make it in a regular paper bag (thanks, mari!), or on the stovetop. lately, i've been partial to the stovetop method. no burnt kernels if you shake it. shake it.
