I came home from writers’ group soooo hungry. I didn’t want caffeine this late but I didn’t think I should have a chocolate shake, which is my go-to night time I’m hungry snack.

Instead I made the pinterest popcorn in the microwave – pour 1/2 cup popcorn kernels into container, stir in one tsp. oil, pour into brown paper lunch sack, fold top of bag over and microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes. you can spray it with Pam or pour melted butter over it, salt or season to taste.

To go with it and cut down on calories I had this herbal tea blend. Very refreshing, almost no calories since I only added a touch of sugar, and no fat. Hooray! And I finished the pitcher! My next iced tea I think will be Passionfruit by H&S.

Passion Fruit makes a great iced tea. I have some pouches of the Decaf Passion Fruit to try. I find it interesting that loose, they have Passion Fruit and Decaf Peach (Midsummers) and in the 2 qt pouches, they sell the reverse….Peach and Decaf Passion Fruit…..

Did the popcorn trick work? I’m desperate to try but I keep forgetting to buy brown paper bags haha

Jen: I noticed that last night at Barnes and Noble. I even stooped over to look at the tin more closely to see if it said decaf anywhere, but nope! The iced peach is not decaf, the Passionfruit is!

Daisy: oh yes, it works very well. I thought one teaspoon oil would not be enough but it is plenty. I bought fifty cheap, thin brown bags at WalMart. Fold the top over once or twice. We didn’t use salt because we used that seasoning they sell at WalMart and most groceries. Our favorite is white cheddar but we are having nacho flavor now.

ah yum! Thank you, I will definitely try it as soon as I remember to buy those bags o_o

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
