Don’t Burn the Popcorn

by Meghann on December 1, 2010

I’ve had this bag of popcorn in my desk for a while now. Everyday I tell myself I’m going to eat it as my afternoon snack and everyday I chicken out and go for something else. Popcorn is one of those office snacks my co-workers tend to frown upon. I mean, who likes the smell of burnt popcorn? Not I.  


However, today I took the plunge. I really, really wanted it and the coast was clear around the kitchen. I put it in the microwave and crossed my fingers – as I always do – NOT to burn the popcorn. I cooked 30 seconds under and had unpopped kernals, but it was worth it.

I enjoyed my popcorn and had no complaints. Win – Win. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After work I had a little project to tackle.


(Details to follow, but I promise it’s good. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

So, dinner was quick and easy.


I roasted a local butternut squash I bought at the College Park Farmer’s Market last week with pumpkin spice and paired it with some roasted broccoli.


I topped those veggies with marinara sauce, lentils, and parmesan cheese.


Not sure why I haven’t made lentils in so long. It’s a great source of protein and really doesn’t take that long to cook. I guess it just got lost at the bottom of my pantry? ๐Ÿ™‚

For dessert I had 4 GIrl Scout Thin Mints.


Just I said Girl Scout Thin Mints. I almost forgot they were in my freezer. There are still 3 left in there too!

Now, if you’ll excuse me – I’ll get back to my project! I’ll explain more in the morning – too tired to explain now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good Night!

Welcome to December! Can you believe itโ€™s the last month of 2010?!?! Where did this year go? 2010 has been such a great year! Does it really have to end in 31 days? Booooโ€ฆ. At least that means 2011 is right around the corner. I have no big plans for 2011 just yet, but I more ยป
