Dinner and a Movie


This post probably doesn't require much explanation... the pictures say it all.

Saturday night= deep dish pizza from Lou Malnati's...


Accompanied by a glass of Schweppes on the rocks... oh, how I love you, Schweppes.  


Finished off with some homemade caramel corn for dessert...


You start with the air-popped popcorn, then mix in the caramel sauce (brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup- add vanilla and baking soda after the mix has boiled for 5 minutes)...


Bake for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes, and voila! Notice how I left in the un-popped kernels? That was a lazy mistake... you should sift those out before adding in the sauce- if you don't, your teeth will pay for it later.


If you want the exact measurements for the recipe, click here... you'll see I left out the peanuts. It's just the way we are.

After this, we tried for a second time to watch a movie we rented awhile back... the first time we both fell asleep within the first 20 minutes. Last night we made it for about the first hour before falling asleep. Either we're constantly tired or it's a boring movie... or probably both. 

As for these guys... their turn is coming- stay tuned!
