Popcorn Seasonings

No…that’s not not burnt popcorn its coarsely ground pepper.

My wife wakes me up at 7am today and asks me to take her to work. Not really a big deal since today is an off day for me. After I brave the INSANE traffic to get her to work she asks me to clean the house as we will be having guests on Friday. This was a little annoying as I wanted today to myself but oh well. After I dropped her off I stopped by the store to get something to drink and snack on. My phosphorus had been a little high so I decided to be good and try my hand at making stove-top popcorn.

Then I decided that plan popcorn probably tastes horrible. So I spent a few minutes looking around the internet for ideas and here is what I came up with.

**NOTE: Here’s the thing, the following amounts are enough to flavor a one gallon ziptop bag because I always make at least enough to fill two one gallon bags.**

A gift of awesome

I got a late and unexpected birthday present tonight! This book has been sitting on my Amazon wish-list for a couple of years now, though I am not complaining at all. It’s the one, the only “Alton Brown’s Gear for Your Kitchen“! It’s been very hard for me to put this book down all night. Then I made an amazing discovery, Alton tucked in a few recipes here and there in the book as well. It may be a little unmanly but…*Squee!*

This has just added fuel to my fire so to speak. I have always had a passion for cooking but lately I haven’t had much of a passion for anything. But with this gift, and the fact that I came up with over 45 recipe ideas yesterday, I am hoping to revitalize my passion for cooking.

It was very hard work but I think I have come up with some great dialysis friendly recipes lately. I just tested one tonight and it was amazing!….I really should have taken a photo of it before the wife and I ate it all but it wasn’t that photogenic anyway.

Speaking of which, I have really gotten into photography lately. I still have my old Sony Cybershot that my parents got for me back in 2006 I think. It doesn’t have the best manual control ever but so far its been a great camera to learn on. Why? Because it was free! Yeah I know, I’m cheap. To be honest I might not have gotten into photography if it wasn’t for the fact that I already had a camera. What I REALLY want is a Canon Rebel (I’m not sure which one yet) but have you seen the price tag on that thing? It’s over $500! Oh well, maybe one day I will have a nice basic SLR.

I am feeling really good about this project again, lets hope it sticks this time.

Well I am off to bed. I have to be up for treatment in about seven hours from now.

Keep being awesome,
Chris
