Popcorn has been an obsession these past couple of weeks….
I’ve been munching on Chicago Popcorn Shops’ Caramel and Cheese and Chocolate Almond Crisps…like, every minute.
And when I ran out of store-bought popcorn, what I do is I pop a bag of Crispy White popcorns in the microwave…..
Then drizzle it with truffle oil.
That’s what I’ve been up to mostly… for a few weekends now — I’ve been drizzling truffle oil in my popcorn.
It was heaven… kind of like sending my tastebuds on their spa day.
Today, bits of bacon found their way into my popcorn…
It’s a well deserved treat, after all, since the last couple of days this week has been a struggle. We’ve been dealing with sneezing, coughing, fevers, and sleepless nights at home. I guess this is brought about by the fickle-minded weather we’re having. The sun shining brightly in the morning followed by a rainy afternoon or the other way around.
And we are not yet done, even though I’ve already drank cups of Hot Calamansi with Honey in my body weight. I hope we all get better next week. Exercise has been on hold because I don’t feel well and I feel very sluggish.
