Day 11 and Healthy Kettle Corn recipe

So today was pretty much a crazy normal Wednesday, but tonight things were definitely looking up.

I got a coupon for 2 free bowls of “grown up mac n cheese” at Noodles and Company (it pays to be member of e mail clubs for places you like.)  So I took the kids out for supper and when your kids love mac n cheese as much as mine do, this makes for lots of smiles and laughs. We enjoyed our dinner and headed home to play in the new snow for a few minutes (BRRRR!!!!)  and then headed in for popcorn and hot cocoa.  The baby learned how to say Cocoa which is beyond cute, so we pretty much give it to her whenever she says it.

I found this recipe for kettle corn over the stove top on a great site, Ourbestbites.com and we modified it to make it healthier and it turned out great.  So great, I feel it does not count as a junk food and enjoyed a small bowl of it myself.

Hope you like it as much as we did!
