Hey there. Thanks so much for joining us on this winter Tuesday. We are so glad you’re here! Here’s the challenge this week:
Let’s talk about food. What’s your favorite food or dish? Does it evoke a memory or is it something new that you adore?
Oh, this is easy! Popcorn!! It is the perfect food. First, it’s delicious. Salty, crunchy, buttery. It’s good for you, too. High in fiber and low in calories (if you skip the butter – and maybe the salt – come on, who are we kidding?).
But the best part is you eat it when you’re watching a movie. A movie! Personally, I love movies: old ones, classic ones, new ones, any kind (except the cut up people ones or ones where the dog dies – I never think that’s okay).
I tried eating a sandwich at a movie once – so not the same.
It’s been more than a year since it was actually safe to go to the movies. But thankfully, we have so many choices on TV and streaming now. We even have new movie releases available without ever having to leave home. And I bought a real popcorn maker that makes the kind they have in the theatres. It’s not exactly the same thing, but pretty close.
I used to go to the movies every Saturday and get my popcorn fix. And I have to admit, I do miss actually going out to the theatre. But I’m hoping that soon we’ll be able to resume activities like that. I can’t wait!
Now let’s hop over to the incredible A.S. Fenichel and see what she loves to eat…
