Quality Time

How long does it take to make popcorn?  Ask any kid and they can tell you.  Three minutes is all it takes! First you remove the cellophane.  Then you place the bag in the microwave.  Cook for three minutes.  Now you can enjoy your popcorn.

Making popcorn wasn't quite like this when I was younger.  Making popcorn was a family event. It took time!  This was quality together time.  The invention of the microwave has made cooking easier in many respects.  However, it has also eliminated some great bonding experiences and quality family time.

Why are we always in such a rush?  Why not take a few extra minutes today to spend with your family?  Make some popcorn!

Popping subsides, pour into brown bag and shake.

  1. My grandpa always made us popcorn on the stove top. Even now, that's how hubby makes it!

    1. My Dad was the man in charge of the popcorn pot at our house! Great memories and traditions that I am trying to pass on.
