Christmas Popcorn

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love the lights, the sound of snow falling, the smell of the evergreen trees, and the joy my children have for the holiday. For our traditional viewing of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”, I made Christmas popcorn. This is a very easy recipe and can whipped up very quickly. Here is a very basic recipe that can be easily modified for your family. 


Ingredients:

5 cups of popped popcorn

1 bag of red and green M&Ms 

1 bag of mini marshmallows

1 bag of chocolate covered pretzels Christmas trees
Directions: 

Pop your popcorn. I do mine on the stove in a popcorn pan. However, lightly buttered microwaveable popcorn works as well. Mix all ingredients into a large brown bag and serve. 

Very easy yet a fun treat for your holiday movies. This time of year is stressful enough, the treats you have with your family shouldn’t be. 

Merry Christmas!

Giving Back

I have always been close to my family. My parents instilled in us the importance of family and having a relationship with my grandparents. I was able to spend the week of Thanksgiving in my Colorado with my grandparents.

While I loved spending the week with them, it was an eye-opening experience. I spent the week taking care of two old people. Cooking for them, running errands and helping my grandma when she shook so bad her pills would dump on the floor. Family is important. I got to give back to two people who always had my back growing up. 

I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for them. Their first home cooked holiday meal in about 4 years. It broke me heart to leave them. 

On a positive note; Colorado is gorgeous. Here’s a few pics of my trip.
