I ushered in the weekend with a few rounds of popcorn for the family. My mother would be proud, though I didn’t serve it as a side dish with prime rib or anything.

Popcorn is my favorite food. I try to wrap my head around making healthy choices with an air popper and the like but then I end up melting a stick of butter and dumping that on the dry popcorn, so I just stick with a bit of oil and corn popped in a standard popcorn popper.

I am working on keeping added salt to a minimum. Watching foods that can lead to hypertension is a must at my age. Even with the lower salt content popcorn is still my favorite food.
