Homemade Microwave Popcorn

We love popcorn around here and eat it often as a snack.
A couple of my kids beg me to buy the microwave popcorn at the grocery store, but it is usually much cheaper to buy kernels and pop it at home.
Well, I ran across this idea and was pleasantly surprised!
Homemade microwave popcorn...easy, thrifty, and delicious!

Here is the recipe:
1/4 cup popcorn
2 tsp. olive or vegetable oil
1/4 tsp. salt
brown paper lunch bag

I combine everything in my measuring cup.

Pour into bag and give a little shake.

Fold down top a couple of times and secure with a piece of tape.

Microwave for 2-3 minutes or until there is about 5 seconds between pops.
You have a delicious snack!

Hope you enjoy:).

Just wanted to let you know that we hope to make the soap dispenser in the canning jar, and we also love your toothbrush-in-a-jar idea! We have lots of toothbrushes to keep up with around here, and I'm always hoping for a more workable idea:) And thanks again for the popcorn idea!

Blessings from your newest follower!
