Want to know how to make healthy microwave popcorn? I’ll tell you in a minute:
This morning we went to Gossett’s Indoor Farmer’s Market again. Landon must have had five samples of grass-fed Angus sausage and bread with butter each — I finally had to pry him away from the samples.
Don bought a fruit tart and some wine, and I got some vegetables, yummy bread, and one cob of dried, red corn to make popcorn. I was instructed to just put the corn into a regular paper bag and pop it in the microwave, and that sounded like so much fun that I just had to try it out.
I never have enough time to look at all the cute new things they have at Cottage Antiques next door. Today, I hardly had time to say hi to the owner, Lisa, but my goal for my next visit is to buy at least one of her adorable treasures.
