During the winter months, we LOVE to have family movie night. We’ll all gather around on the chair, couch, or sometimes spread out on the floor with blankets, pop some popcorn, and watch a great family-friendly movie.
In the summer, however, it’s a different story. Bedtime gets pushed back from 8:30 to 9:00 while our boys are enjoying the longer days. They love to be outside. Summer is not a time to be inside watching a movie at our house.
So, lately, family movie night has kind of turned into a budget date night for mom and dad. Seriously…who doesn’t have a couple bucks for a box of popcorn?? (Please forgive my ridiculously bad “selfie” skills!)
After the boys go to bed, we’ve taken to watching a Little House on the Prairie episode, and enjoying a bowl of popcorn. It’s even more fun to have our popcorn date since Ma and Pa Ingalls so often enjoy popcorn in bed together :)
Of course, they had to work a bit harder to get their popcorn!
We mostly stick to the microwaveable kind. Easy peasy. Except…
Burned Popcorn Rant
1. The Smell!!! If you’ve ever been in a small, closed up office when someone burned a bag of popcorn, you know what I’m talking about. Burned popcorn is one of the worst smells…and it can hang around for days!
2. The Taste!!! It’s only fitting that something that smells that bad would also taste bad. But, seriously…it is BAD! And sometimes a few burned ones sneak their way right into the bowl along with the perfect ones, and that is NO fun…yuck!

So, there really is an app for everything now! Pop Secret has created this awesome app to help you put an end to burned popcorn! This neat app will entertain you with fun facts, and give you a little sneak preview of your popping corn. Here are a few screen shots of when we used it. The kiddos especially enjoyed it :)
