Popcorn. It's kind of a staple around here.

Most of our nights wrap up by sitting on the deck enjoying dessert...unless it's raining. In which case we watch a short show instead. And most times it includes popcorn (ok ok or ice cream).

I saw this recipe forever ago on Pinterest but seemed to forget it in the four months of morning (aka all day) sickness. This summer something clicked...or maybe I got disgusted by the concept of fake butter and chemicals in packaged microwave popcorn.

This is how we make popcorn all.the.time.

It's so simple to throw a tablespoon(ish) of the classic Boy Scout popcorn kernels into a paper lunch bag. 

Then I simply fold the top down twice and give it a good crease.

Microwave it till you hear the popping slowing down and you're good.  

To make matters even simpler, we add some seasoning: salt, a little melted butter and shake it around in the bag. No dishes for this one. 

And that makes this working mom a happy I can feel better about the use of real butter and salt! 

What about you working mommas? Favorite healthy, quick snacks? Leave us a recipe in the comments. We'd love to hear from you!
