Let's play catch up: we had a party plus a recipe share {party corn}

5:07 PM

Mr. Cooper turned 27 and we had a party (like two months ago), but I'll share with you now. It was simple, a few favorite desserts/snack foods. And he said it was the nicest solo (as in not a combined birthday) party he ever had. I am thankful for a simple man. He makes my heart sing.

We also did a lot of other fun things this summer (like went to the Grand Canyon in an RV with two of our closest friends). I've just not been on top of sharing. At all. Sometimes real life just wins.

It's been a few months of summer fun, but we are gearing back into reality now. 

Here are a few photos, and I mean a few from Will's big 2-7. We love you! Happy birthday from the blog world….2 months late.

And here's a recipe for you. Meet party corn. A new favorite of ours. Kettle corn with sprinkles. Because it's just more fun that way.

Kettle Corn With Sprinkles {Party Corn}
Yield: plenty for you and a few to share, varied

1/4 c. white sugar
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. unpopped popcorn kernels
sea salt to taste

Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium/high heat. Toss 3 kernels in. Once all 3 kernels pop, stir in the sugar and the rest of your kernals. Cover. Shake the pot almost constantly to keep the sugar from burning (you can do three seconds on the heat, three seconds off). Once the popping has slowed to every 2-3 seconds, remove pot from heat. Pour into a large bowl, salt and stir, breaking up any large clumps. Sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles. Serve and enjoy.

Note: For a party, divide into small paper bags for individual servings. This would be fun for movie night too! We just used white sack lunch bags and trimmed them down to size.
