Well I don't have a One Local Summer meal this week. (I actually contemplated buying a giant zucchini, taking one bite out of the side of it, and taking a picture for you. But I didn't want to snark on the concept of OLS - which has been one of the highlights of my summer!)
Since I made this on a whim today using local popcorn, I thought I might be able to sneak it in as my "meal". It was so good I can hardly contain my excitement.
OMG Kettle Corn!!!!
Check out this thing I found brand new in the box at Goodwill - a stove-top popcorn popper called the WhirleyPop:
It's from Williams-Sonoma and DANG - if it doesn't make the best popcorn I've ever had. It gets every kernel popped thanks to the little gizmo inside that stirs the bottom of the pot as you turn the handle:
It came with a recipe booklet, and I made the "Sweet Touch" popcorn that glazes every kernel in a light coating of sugar. It's just 1/3 cup of popcorn, 4 tbsp of oil, and 4 tbsp of sugar.
Why not make a meal out of it? :)
And speaking of nifty kitchen stuff, have you seen these?
Reusable silicone baking cups? They work beautifully and wipe clean.
My apologies for the lack of meal. I'll try to end with a bang!
