This Sriracha Popcorn has freshly popped corn kernels drench in Sriracha, butter, and calamansi sauce….
This is what’s so good even if we just had a start of “A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week” (taken from the movie Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day).
Well, that’s according to Ykaie since our Sunday started with her being sick. I don’t want to elaborate but peanutbutter♥ and I had little to no sleep nursing Ykaie back to health until monday night. The following day when she recovered from her illness, I was surprised to see sore eyes!
I was mostly offline since last Sunday. Yesterday I was offline the whole day, bonding with my daughter. We had a GRIMM Season 4 marathon. Have I told you that GRIMM is our favorite series of all time? Yup, but we stopped watching since episode 5 because we got busy with school, work, and mommy things. I guess with Ykaie being sick and all, we finally had time to catch up.
Yes, I had Sriracha Popcorn while Ykaie had ripe mangoes and oranges to munch on while watching Nick Burkhardt get his Grimm back and Juliet become a Hexenbiest.
You know, I used to be in love with chips and dip as movie food but now, I prefer popcorn. I love those movie theater popcorn that’s drenched with butter and more butter. But if I make popcorn at home, I prefer flavors that can’t be found anywhere else. Why Sriracha you might ask. Well, we always have a bottle of Sriracha in the fridge — Yes, we are Sriracha loving people and we put it on food that needs a little zing.
And Sriracha + Butter + Calamansi + Popcorn seems like a great idea. It’s actually a delicious idea.
Ykaie is okay now and we are ready for school tomorrow.
