Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Spunky Popcorn




I know, I know. You are thinking, what in the world is "spunky" popcorn?  Well since this is my year to find my "spunk," I am going to post anything that made me giggle inside with "spunk".  My Easter popcorn falls into that category.   It was just too much fun to make, too much fun to eat, too much fun to bag up and give to neighbors...and even delivering the bags was just "spunky".


Here is what I made...it was worth the effort.  Then Benjamin and I found some wonderful bags that summed up the occasion.  I watched Benjamin skip down the sidewalk to deliver bags, stopping at different points to get a new grip on his bag...I wasn't sure that Benjamin Bunny would get his delivery made.  After making deliveries we had one bag left....now whose was this bag?  I felt a little "spunk" coming on.


I grabbed Benjamin and we started running toward the car.  We jumped in and sped down our street to catch our "mail lady"!  Yes, we blocked her mail truck with our car as she to stared at the "crazy, spunky woman"  running at her. I put my head in the mail car door to announce I had brought her some popcorn and hoped she would enjoy it!!!

Isn't God Good?  He allows us to have fun while sharing His love for others.  My prayer is that our little bag of fun popcorn expressed His love through us!!


I hope you have a "spunky" popcorn!!!

Recipe for Kool-Aid Popcorn  (click on Kool-Aid Popcorn) - hint: bake the popcorn. The air drying makes it too sticky...sorry neighbors, who got a mixture of both....and I added the pastel M&M's

Love the popcorn maker. You may remember when everyone had an air popper, they seemed to be the 'wedding gift' everyone got. Sure wish I had mine but microwave is so easy :/

Love the bags too.

Sue Anne McKinney said...

What a GREAT idea! You truly are a spunky gal! sounds like Benjamin will catch the 'spunk' from you, too.
It's fun to make the most of every opportunity to share the life within us! I'll have to remember this idea.

Debbie said...

My favorite part is the visual image that I have of you chasing down the mail truck with your bag of spunk in hand.

I had seen some recipes for popcorn using koolaid, but I have never tried them. Now, I want to. I'll remember the tip about the air dry.

Christine said...

"I felt the spunk coming on."
Love this sentence.
Benjamin is seeing how to live.
Giving,loving and having fun while doing it.
I would of eatten the last bag.
Next time I have one left, I'm giving it away. I will remember to "feel the spunk coming on".
