because it comes from Welsh – a double l is a letter in its own right as in Llewellyn, llan, etc. Apparently the double l makes a th sound in the Welsh language. Now you know.
Speaking of popcorn, someone mentioned a new business in town selling kettle popcorn. I have a love hate relationship with kettle corn. I’ve eaten it and really enjoyed it and then sometimes not so much. Anyway, due to my obsessive compulsive personality type I couldn’t get this out of my mind and decided I had to try and find a recipe. Which I did. Do you know that mixture of oil, sugar and popcorn kernels set on a hot stove has a high probability of burning. . . especially if the phone rings right in the middle of the experiment.
The result of test recipe one: yuck. Ditched it in the trash. But because I had already decided I needed a sweet and salty popcorn and time was ticking (and I didn’t think my husband would have appreciated a second burned pot of corn) I made an old standby that my kiddies really enjoy. Pop yourself a bowl of corn (I use a hot air popper). Melt some butter and mix with an equal amount of honey. Pour over corn. Salt. Enjoy. Very yummy.
I hope no one suggests anything today . . . I’m still trying to figure out the kettle corn thing . . . I should probably just go buy a bag.
