Today, I woke up later than usual, cleaned my neglected kitchen and ate some leftover broccoli soup. By the time I looked up it was 2 pm. Whoa. I had literally dreamt about making caramel popcorn for a few hours at that point. Originally, about 2 weeks ago my brother mentioned popcorn balls and I decided I wanted to make a few. Then it turned into beer orange peel caramel popcorn balls.. and then just caramel popcorn with maybe some chocolate chips? Pecans? BOTH?! So at around 3 pm I got to work on some caramel popcorn. That’s when things went terribly wrong, but in the end I came out with a beautiful and perfect result after the heartbreak of having a terrible batch that was supposed to be awesome. Oh, and my washing machine broke.
I very rarely ‘cook’ something for breakfast. Usually it’s just oatmeal or fruit and granola, or a little of both if I’m feeling nice. Today I woke up and actually wanted to cook something that we could enjoy for a nice brunch. This is what happened ..
This is a good dinner to make when you have the dreadful take out cravings that come every once in a while.. or if you just really want some orange tofu to go with some of your stray veggies that you bought and haven’t used. That’s why this recipe stuck around, anything goes. Broccoli, squash, cauliflower, peas, kale.. it’s endless.
