Popcorn in a bag

After last week’s column a reader wrote in asking about the popcorn trick — making popcorn in the microwave by simply putting kernals in a paper bag.

I knew this would be a hit because everyone I told this to me said the equivalent of “who knew?”

I love when live is so simple.

The tickling tomatoes trick was a big hit as well. Several readers said they had great success with that trick.

Decidedly there needs to be more tickling in this world. However, last time Tommy and I had a tickle fest I somehow gave him a black eye with my foot.

Contrary to what some folks think, I don’t make this stuff up.

Sharon asked how much popcorn to put in the bag. She was afraid if she put too much it would dirty up her microwave. Well, first off, dry popcorn isn’t dirty. It’s dry. So if you put too much, so be it. Personally, I like those half-popped kernals that are very crunchy and threaten to wreck your dental work.

Answer to Sharon’s question, about 1/3 of a cup for a lunch-bag sized paper bag.

Next spray with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and salt, and dream of Fabio.
