As I just mentioned in my last post, I am always desiring things to make my life at home easier. One of those things I thought I just had to have was a popcorn popper. Popcorn is such a healthy and frugal snack - especially when you are feeding two growing boys! I thought about it for a few months, mentioned it to my mom, but then put it out of my mind. I couldn't justify buying one when I could make popcorn on the stovetop.
A few days ago when I opened a Christmas package from my parents, there was a Presto Popcorn Popper! The boys and I couldn't wait to try it so we plugged it in right away. I am amazed at how quickly and easily we can have healthy air popped popcorn! Clean up is a snap. We melt a little butter in a pan while the popcorn is popping and stir that in when the popcorn is done and sprinkle a little sea salt on top.
Although I didn't have to have this popper, it sure has made a favorite snack a lot easier to prepare!
