Shark Popcorn

SHARK POPCORN


Its a super easy recipe but I'd recommend a  helper. I had a friend here stirring the pot ( literally) while I stirred the popcorn.

Shark Popcorn Directions:
Pop about four bags of popcorn, I used microwavable but you can pop your own if that's your preference. The thing about the popcorn is this - It is all about how much candy to popcorn ratio you want. I wanted more popcorn than candy so I popped four bags ( actually five but decided that was to many and we ate the one bag plain).

You need:
1/2 stick Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Light Karo Syrup 
I used a 6 ounce bag of Red Hots ( don't sweat the ounces, anything from 4-6 ounces and it will work just fine)
Dump into a pot and melt over medium heat.

You need about four bags of microwavable popcorn
big disposable aluminum pan

I put all the popcorn in one bowl, then had a small bowl that I added a little popcorn at a time into and my friend drizzled a little of the melted candy mixture from above. I stirred it up pretty good and then dumped into a big aluminum disposable pan. Added more popcorn to bowl, my friend drizzled melted candy  mixture, stir, dump into aluminum pan and we kept doing that till all popcorn and melted candy mixture was used up.  SEE why I say a helper is handy, it would not be easy to drizzle and stir and UGG I would have had a mess everywhere if she had not been helping. With her help the whole process ( before putting in the oven) took maybe ten minutes.
THEN you put the aluminum pan full of popcorn into the oven on 250 degrees for an hour. I know it seems weird, like WHY the oven but trust me put the pan of popcorn in the OVEN. It just works and keeps the popcorn from getting soggy. 

I bought my sharks HERE
I used this POPCORN HERE,  I used four bags (or pop up bowls)

Navy Scalloped Dishes, Pepper Mill, Lemon Jar and Rug

Recently HEB ( our local grocery) had roses on sale, at the amazing price of $6.99 a dozen with an additional coupon of $2.00 off the third item you purchased in the floral department. With a deal like that I lost my mind and bought nine dozen for less than $62.00. Was it necessary...HECK NO, but I did it and now many areas of our home are covered in roses, and look and smell fabulous. 
With roses everywhere, it made me pull out some new dishes to share with the family and you all. These are the navy scalloped monogram dinnerware and I love their whimsy and causal fun look.  
Several of you all asked on Instagram Stories where to find them. They come in every letter of the alphabet and have four available pieces ( dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, bowl and mug).
To find them click HERE 

They have a great edge on them, I adore the scallops ( of course, I do), and NAVY blue....YES, YES, YES to all three. Its like the trifecta of dishes.
They can be found HERE


Closer look at the dinner plate

Several people asked about my turquoise pepper mill and where to find it. Mine is the 14 inch which is sold out but the 8 inch is still 
available HERE 

My lemon dish ( sugar jar, jelly jar, whatever you'd like to put in it jar) is old and I found while antique shopping but HOLY COW 
I found one HERE 
and the price is unbelievable and it is CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!


Surprisingly I didn't think I even showed the rug but I had questions and I said I would share.
 Find the rug HERE
 it is a runner, not expensive at all ( I drop, I spill, I have to replace).


Hope all the details help anyone who is interested. Have a great day.

Olive Oil, Silver Polish and SHARK WEEK


I shared this look on Instagram and had several questions on where I found the spouts for my olive oil. That's a super easy fix,
you can find them HERE 
I use these particular ones because the the spout is covered
and moves away to pour the oil by tilting the bottle. SO NICE.


The other question I had from you all was what silver polish do I use. I have used the same one for years and over and over, always repurchasing. 
To find it click HERE

I couldn't resist these fun and silly salt and pepper shakers. I mean if you're a shark week fan then you get it. They have a magnet to hold the leg in the sharks mouth. I know its not fine china but its definitely FUN. 
Find them HERE

This is technically a sushi tray, but seriously I can see sushi, veggies, sweet treats....all kinds of shark week goodness on this fun tray. Its ceramic, the mouth of the shark is made to hold soy sauce, ranch dressing, icing, you name it, the mouth is basically a bowl.  Again if you love the fun of shark week then its a must and
 you can find it HERE

Plastic sharks, YES of course, its shark week. Throw a cute plastic shark in the bowl or drink and INSTANT shark week fun. 
Find these HERE

NO shark week is complete without shark gummies. 
They are as important as popcorn at the movies. 
Find them HERE

Have a great week and most of what I posted can ship in time for shark week!
