A brief break from my current theme to bring you this random picture I took today! 😋🍿 I joined @maryweberauthor
's new FB book club recently, and Renegades is this month's book. It's REALLY good so far, and I'm excited because @marissameyerauthor
is going to pop in for a q&a sometime this month! Squee! 😄 If you want to join in on the fun, just hop on over to Mary's IG and click on the link in her bio.
QOTD: Favorite type of popcorn?
AOTD: I like lightly salted, kettlecorn, or white cheddar!
Mary shared a recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Caramel Popcorn for us to munch on while we read (doesn't that sound YUM? 😍), but since I have a lot of food allergies, I created my own popcorn snack inspired by Mary's recipe. It still needs some tweaks since it was my first time making it, but it was pretty tasty! Here's how I did it:
Maple Peanut Butter Popcorn
🍿 One bag of microwave popcorn, lightly salted
🍿 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter
🍿 1/8-1/4 cup pure maple syrup
🍿 1/8 tsp of vanilla
🍿 pinch of salt 🍿 sprinkle of carob powder
Stir together peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave for three 15 second intervals, stirring between each interval.
Pour peanut butter mixture over warm popcorn and stir until popcorn is coated.
Sprinkle desired amount of carob powder on top and toss.
The popcorn does start to get a bit soft when it sits for a while, but I discovered sticking it in the freezer for a few minutes helps make it a bit crunchy again!
- Day 3: #CoverLove
- Isn't the Renegades' cover stunning? It fills me with nostalgia for the old superhero cartoons and shows I used to watch. 😍
- The Notebook - Book with Feels: I'm just partway through this one, but it already has me feeling so nostalgic and connected to these characters. I can tell I'm in for a ride!
