In trying to come up with Something To Talk About today, I got into a conversation with the boyfriend that was funnier and more interesting than anything I wanted to rant about. Rather than forcing myself to write when I wasn’t feeling it, I decided to transcribe our behind-the-scenes shenanigans into the only format that made sense:

Spicy Thai Popcorn

So authentically Asian.

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1 cup chili lemon peanuts
  • 1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp chili oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp thai spice mix
  • 1 tsp  Spicy Chili Lime Popcorn Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp powdered ginger

Heat oils in large frying pan. Add popcorn and cover. When popcorn starts to pop, shake pan constantly until popping slows. Remove from heat and continue shaking until popping stops. Mix peanuts, coconut and spices in a separate bowl. Pour over popcorn and toss.

Once again, thanks must go to my not-nearly-better half for putting together a strip. I told him he wouldn’t ever have to do another, since the last one was made solely as a tribute to Comic-Con. But I say a lot of things—I’m almost biblical in that sense. I suppose a confession is in order, as well: I don’t actually own a laptop. We made that part up. Somebody buy me one.

TWTG says, “I have risotto on my shirt and what looks like a booger.”

  1. This happens to me a lot. Mr. Weebles and I have conversations that are way funnier than half the blog ideas I have.

    What are lemon peanuts??? I must lead a very sheltered life because I don’t know lemon peanuts.

    • Mme Weebles – I bought my peanuts at World Market. The are online if you don’t have a store near you. Although, I swear they have chili lime or lemon peanuts at most of our convenience stores around here.



  2. What kind of sandwich is that dude eating? Looks tasty.

  3. Wait. So hash tags have nothing to do with potatoes?!

  4. What’s a hashtag & what’s this about Randy Travis & his penis??? I have a laptop, but I live in a cave apparently…

  5. Poor, poor Randy. And his poor life decisions.

  6. Hilarious! My husband and I have those conversations all the time and they’re always better than anything I can dream up for a blog post.

  7. Holy crap you gotta update! Do you have any idea how weird (well, funny too) to peek in on your blog and be welcomed by “#randytravispenis” every time?

  8. Where have you been???? Randy Travis has been screwing up again, don’t you want to create a new hashbrown for that?

  9. Reblogged this on Christopher De Voss and commented:
    Hello Thursday! Hello Reblog! Go check out thewhitetrashgourmet for little slices of humourous stories and recipes of stuff I won’t make because I only cook things that come in a box.

  10. Did you draw all those pictures? How? I LOVE them. I can draw fairly well, but on PAINT it looks pretty lame. Yours are great. Also, the conversation cracks me up. It could have been between my dh and me.
