Recently, the weather’s been rubbish, money has been tight, and consequently I’ve spent a lot of my time wrapped up in a duvet binge watching Netflix. Whilst this is a pleasant activity in itself, I’ve also discovered that it can be significantly improved by the addition of snacks – and this homemade caramel popcorn (from What Charlotte Eats) is up there with the best of them.
One of the great things about this popcorn recipe is that you literally need five ingredients – oil, kernels, butter, sugar and syrup (hey, I said it was easy, not healthy!) – and it takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish. If it’s raining, cold, or generally miserable where you are, fire up your laptop, put your pan on the stove and get popping.
Brr! Baby, its cold outside, and I for one can barely leave the house without sliding to my doom on the slippery ice coated pavements. Here in the UK, we’re experiencing what we call ‘major snowfall’, which to most of the world I’m pretty sure is just ‘really cold rain’. Yes, I’ll openly admit that as a country, we’re pretty rubbish at dealing with snow, and will continue to complain about it until it thaws and we can carry on grumbling about the wind and rain again.
In true Brit tradition, I am hopeless at dealing with gusts of wind and ice, but what I can deal with is the comfort food that I’m entitled to eat when it arrives! Whether you’re still on the new year diet bandwagon or in the mood for some series snow day indulgence, here are my top 10 foods for eating on a snow day.
