Stove Top Popcorn

Thursday is my favorite day of the work week...  Well, Thursday night, at least.  It gives me hope that I will survive yet another week since the next day is Friday.  Also, Scandal.  Have you seen this show?  It is SO good!  Like, sit on the edge of your seat, good.  Watch it.  Thursday at 10pm.  Your mind will be blown.  The main character in the show is Olivia Pope.  She survives off a strict diet of popcorn and expensive red wine.

Popcorn is delicious!  It's the perfect snack to eat in front of the tv.  Who am I kidding?  It's the perfect snack anyplace, anytime, which brings me to my stove top popcorn recipe.  If there was any way to be a lot lazier about this I would but since I don't have a microwave, stove top it is.  You heard that right.  I haven't had a microwave since I moved into this house back in May.  To be honest, I'm surviving quite well without it.  I'll get one eventually but for now I'm living without it.  A tea kettle though.  That's one thing I wish I did have.  Oh, well.

Stove Top Popcorn


1/3 cup popcorn
1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Cover pan and heat over high heat.  I use a sauce pan.  It makes the perfect amount for me.  Add oil, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan.  I use olive oil and it adds enough flavor that I don't feel the need to add any butter.  It's a personal preference though.  Next, add the kernels to the pan, sprinkle in the salt and put the lid back on.  Shake the pan to prevent the popcorn from burning.  Once it starts popping, keep shaking the pan.  When there are 2 seconds between pops, remove from heat and enjoy!!
