I really never meant to be gone from this space for so long. I was just taking a few days to finish up a project, to get everything completed so that I could return to our normal rhythm, but days turned into weeks, and here I am wondering where the time went.
I have been working on a special project that I am excited to share with you in the coming months, and besides the three little ones, it has taken up most of my summer time fun. One of the best parts of the project is that there has been lots and lots of cooking involved, and many recipes developed.
One of our favorites has become a simple herbal popcorn that is fast, easy and perfect for summer movie or star watching. The popcorn can be made with any herb combination that sounds good, and then topped off with a spice/salt blend. It is a bit addicting, and I make a large amount just to have a bit left the next day with my lunch or a snack.
15 cups of popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried rosemary
Melt the butter and remove from heat. Add the herbs, salt and pepper and drizzle over the popcorn. Toss gently to incorporate and serve.
I wish you all a beautiful weekend (how is is August already??) and I will be back in this space on Monday.
