this is where it's at - pj's, harry potter and popcorn.
mac and abbie brought home super duper progress reports. we didn't go through their book bags until sunday night (yea we procrastinate!) and boy what a fun celebratory dinner we had. you better believe i was reminiscing... it's unbelievable what a difference a year has made with the two of them. never in a million years did i think mac would earn an A in handwriting... and i was definitely holding.my.breath with abbie. was her academic progress just a dream? would she continue to improve on pace with the rest of the class' expectations in 2nd grade?! yippy ki-yaaaaaa, she's right on target!!
this better food=better brains thang is foh real. i mean, i simply can't give chris and my genetics all the credit now, that would just not be seeing the big picture. HA!
...however, abbie lost her glasses somewhere, somehow yesterday... and we can't find them. argh!!
the best "shake and bake" homemade popcorn
1/3 c organic popcorn kernels
2-3 T organic coconut oil (i scoop and dump it... eyeball style)
melt the oil in a large pan over med high heat. place three popcorn kernels in the oil, salt it and lid it. wait until the few kernels pop and then dump the rest to shake and bake. background dancers necessary & a clear lid is super fun.
