Weekend Happenings


Things that happened this weekend...

+ I ate mexican food Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Ole
+ Deep cleaned my apartment while Reese went to the NRA gun show. 'merica 
+ Reese drank his Saturday margarita out of a measuring cup. Classy.
+ I attempted to buy new running shoes... it didn't go well. Boo. 
+ Didn't go to a wedding. Hallelujah. 
 + I let you in to the process that is taking a photo with my boyfriend. Annoyed.
+Made Sangria. Delish
+Made Margaritas. Delish, Delish
+Made Chili Lime Popcorn. Delish, Delish, Delish.
(recipe below)
+Started brewing our first batch of homemade beer. Fancy.
+Started digging myself out of my blogging hole. Progress.
+Made a random Amazon purchase. Too Easy.

On Sunday, the real Cinco De Mayo (opposed to the "fake" cinco de mayo we celebrated Friday and Saturday) I had had my share of margaritas and decided a tamer snack was needed, enter chili lime popcorn.  


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup unpopped popcorn 
Juice of one lime 
1 tablespoon chili powder (or Tony Chachere)
Salt to taste 

In a large sauce pan combine vegetable oil and popcorn seeds. Heat covered over medium-high heat for approximately 6 minutes or until all popping stops. Transfer to a serving bowl squeeze lime juice over popcorn, sprinkle chili powder and salt!

I've used Tony Chachere on popcorn before, but I've never added lime. Interesting - might have to try it! :)

I don't know how I feel about this fancy popcorn! I'm such a typical "yes, I'd like some popcorn with my butter" kind of girl. Make me some margs!!

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

UMMM now I want that popcorn.
But I don't have popcorn.
And I'm currently sitting on my couch in my undies so I don't foresee me getting up to go buy popcorn anytime soon.
Guess I'll just stare at your popcorn...

LOVE YAAA :)
