Single Food

Getting married changes many things in a girl's life. One major change was eating dinner - every night! As I approach my 3rd anniversary, I've learned to appreciate the nights where I can make popcorn for dinner again. There is something so liberating about a big bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine.
To give out the appropriate credit - my husband has brought stovetop popcorn into my life. Popping corn on the stove, in a big pot - just a little oil (1-2 Tbsp oil and 1/2 cup kernals) will do it. The smell reminds me of the popcorn they sold at high school basketball games.

So we do share popcorn evenings - but on the rare night that I eat alone - I always have popcorn!

I almost fell of my chair when I read this! It must be a MN thing - my husband loves popcorn so much, that we sometimes have it for dinner, too! Until we replaced it, we used an air popper received as a wedding gift for close to 12 years before it pooped out.

Now about that wine - what do you recommend with popcorn?

TN: how funny! When it is truly 'single night' for me, I go with my FAVORITE wine: the driest/heaviest red wine i can find. A nice Cab or something heavy from France usually does the trick. THe trouble with popcorn - after only one glass, i'm good.
