Jan 4 Menu
Today's main meal was Thursday redux . . . leftover spaghetti. And it wasn't really dinner. We ate it about 2 pm. We'd had a big omelette breakfast (no toast!), so had a late lunch. We finished off the day with a bowl of real popcorn. We don't do microwave or airpopped corn. I have an old Westbend popper where you put the kernels in the bottom of the popper and a metal stirring rod spins around slowly. I add about a tsp of olive or canola oil in the bottom before adding the kernels. Then you put a big plastic dome over it and wait . .. not very long! If you're feeling decadent, you can add melted butter through the top of the dome, but we do that only about once a year. We didn't do it last night. Add in snacks throughout the day of a couple of clementines and a grapefruit, and that was it for meals on January 4th!
