during my four years of college, i had four different roommates. mandy and i lived together for three years. we hardly knew each other when we agreed to be roommies. and, for the most part, we were a good fit. (right, roommie?)
unfortunately, mandy doesn't like peanut butter. couldn't even handle the smell.
in a small dorm room, without a real refrigerator, there're only so many "meals" you can make.
and there's only so many places you can hide from the aroma of a new jar of peanut butter.
when mandy was around, i didn't crack the lid. that's the kind of roommate i was.
the other night, i was looking for a milk-free snack when i remembered a recipe i stumbled on during my pregnancy with ava. peanut butter popcorn.
before you knock it, you really ought to give it a try. and to help you to that end, i'm sharing the recipe. yum!
in a small pan over medium heat, combine 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. light corn syrup and stir while sugar melts. add 1/2. c. peanut butter and stir until melted. remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla. stir over 6-8 c. popped popcorn.
peanut butter and popcorn. two of my favorite milk-free snacks.
if i'd had this recipe as a college freshman, mandy and i might not have last three years.
