I left for college when my younger brother and sister were in their beginning years of elementary school. Just a year and a half later, Sam and I got married and 8 months after our wedding we moved to Houston.
As a result, I always felt like I got jipped in my relationship with those two.
We were so close when I was in high school--I would gladly stay home from social events
and play Disney Scene-It with them,
or put together little parties.
But over the past 7 years, they've grown up a lot
and I've missed out on most of it.
So I'm thrilled to re-connect with them now that we're back in Utah.
We've started a tradition of a monthly game night
and it is a riot!!
Guesstures, Cranium, Punch Line...
no matter what we play Sam and I always end up laughing ridiculously hard.
This kettle corn is so easy,
and it's become a part of the tradition as well.
We love to munch on it for a snack anytime,
but it makes an especially great addition to a family game night!
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. popcorn kernels
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. salt
In a large pot with a lid, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add popcorn kernels. When they start to sizzle, sprinkle sugar over the top, place the lid on, and shake pot vigorously every 15 seconds until popcorn is popped. Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt. Stir to distribute evenly and enjoy!
