Last Night I Had Popcorn For Dinner...
I don't know what it has been but this week has been horrible. Every. Single. Thing. that could go wrong at work has. Last night it really got to me and I had zero energy. No energy to fold the three loads of laundry sitting on my floor. No energy to do the work I was supposed to do last night. No energy to make the delicious dinner I wanted to make and post for you all. So I decided to put on a movie, I watched This is Where I leave You, pour myself a glass of wine, and make popcorn.
I did however find the energy to make a "foodie" popcorn and I honestly don't think I can ever go back. I made a rosemary infused butter (Thanks mom for the rosemary bush I got for Christmas) and sprinkled it with truffle salt. I died. It actually made my night, fingers crossed this popcorn will turn the rest of this hell week around.
Hopefully you are having a better week than me! If you are in New England stay warm!
Rosemary Infused Popcorn with Truffle Salt
- 1/2 c popcorn kernels (if you don't have an air popper just use a bag of regular unsalted and unbuttered popcorn)
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 tsp truffle or regular salt
In a small sauce pan over low heat melt 1/2 a stick of butter. Sprinkle in the rosemary. Allow to sit and get to know each other for about 20 minutes. After that either turn on your air popper and pop 1/2 c of popcorn kernels. OR using the microwave pop a bag of popcorn. In a large bowl drizzle the butter over half of the popcorn, sprinkle with truffle salt. Toss to combine, add the rest of the popcorn, drizzle with the rest of the butter, and sprinkle with truffle salt. Toss again to combine and sit down and enjoy!
** 1/2 a cup of kernels makes enough for about 3-4 people depending on how hungry they are. For 1-2 people I would make 1/4 a cup of kernels.
