I have a confession to make.
When I was newly married, I didn’t cook and my poor hubby would often come home to find me munching on a bag of microwave popcorn for dinner while he was left wondering what he would be eating. Hey, I’m not proud – that was a long time ago!
I’m still addicted to popcorn.
I’m also addicted to movie nights. There’s nothing better than curling up under a furry blanket with my girls with a giant bowl of buttery goodness.
But there’s nothing worse than a burned bag of popcorn (yes, I’ve burned many bags and have had to live with the scorched stink during the movie).
So I’ve combined my love for popcorn with my love for apps and discovered this fun little app from Pop Secret that my girls love! It’s called Perfect Pop and it listens to my microwave and lets me know when my popcorn is popped to perfection! Download your own Perfect Pop app on the App Store here.
It’s so funny to watch the spinning popcorn kernel as he swirls faster and faster and goes from yellow to red … so you’ll know when your popcorn is ready.
Voila – no burned popcorn because Perfect Pop finds the exact moment when your popcorn is ready.
It makes popping popcorn fun!
With the popcorn popped, we have to pick a movie but have a bit of a problem when it comes to choosing.
You see, my hubby loves chick flicks (don’t tell anyone!), I love a good horror movie but they’re too scary for my girls and they prefer cheesy romantic comedies!
Compromise is definitely in order when it comes to movie nights nowadays …
and at least I don’t have to watch cartoons anymore!
