Three weeks later and we still don’t know if/when we are closing on our new house.  P asked for the first time when we were going “home” today. I’m surprised she waited three weeks to ask!!!!

So,I have a couple recipes to share.  A few of my friends don’t use microwaves for health reasons, so you can also do these the old fashioned way; cooking sauce on stove, pouring over, and baking in oven.  But these have been handy while we don’t have  a stove!

Microwave Popcorn
(History: came from my sister’s college room mate!)

Place 16 cups popped popcorn in brown grocery bag.

Put 1 stick butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup corn syrup (can use honey insteac), and 1/2 tsp salt in microwave safe bowl.
2 minutes on high – stir
3 minutes on high – stir
Add:  1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Stir very well.

Pour mixture over popcorn in bag.  Fold bag and shake, shake, shake.

Put in microwave, following instructions below.  No peeking!

1 min, shake
1 min. shake
30 sec. shake
  30 sec. shake and pour onto waxed paper to dry.

I also adapted my Mom’s Cheerio Nuggets recipe to this. 
Follow sauce and above instructions using this in the bag instead:
10 cups cheerios
2 cups nuts
1 cup raisens

For those that don’t like raisen or nuts, you can add whatever you want, craisens, etc etc  .
