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
- 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.
