::friend friday::Kali::

I am barely squeaking in Friend Friday.  Friday is almost over...! 

The internet was not working this morning due to a new phone line we had installed. Then after work today, we went to Chicago for dinner. 

So here I am 45 minutes before Saturday. I'd like to introduce to you Kali from It's a Wonderful Life!

She is sharing with us a recipe!

Hello! I thought I'd share a recipe that we usually make around Christmas time. Caramel Popcorn...Yum! It's the perfect snack and it's great to give as a simple gift, too!

2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 sticks butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
Dash of salt
8 qts of non-buttered popcorn

Mix sugar, syrup, and butter. Boil 5 minutes. (As tempting as it may be, do NOT stir while it's boiling.) Remove from heat. Add baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Pour immediately over popcorn. Mix until popcorn is completely covered with caramel and bake for 1 hour at 200 degrees. Put on wax paper, separate, and enjoy!

You could even take it to the next level by drizzling your favorite chocolate over it. Mmmm! We love this popcorn, and hope you will too! 

That sounds delicious and I was just thinking about popcorn yesterday and how I would love to take Kali and Maggie to a very well-known popcorn place in Chicago when they come visit!!

Have a wonderful weekend!
