Ok folks, I'm going to share with you my favorite popcorn recipe. I am a HUGE fan of popcorn. I LOVE popcorn and a good movie. I don't consider myself a popcorn connoisseur but I do favor Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet popcorn and my wife buys it in those 8 lb canisters. Now mind you, I realize I recently announced the Official Beginning of the Recession and confessed to ceasing to buy Starbucks beans and opting for less expensive generics. My announcement caused a huge ripple effect in the coffee industry and right after I made it Starbucks decided to begin closing some stores. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as THE LAZARUS EFFECT wherein there is a direct connection between the person (that person being Lazarus) and the the Powers of Providence. More on that later, lets get on with our popcorn.
Using my Presto Popper I put in the oil and popcorn as usual. Then I add finely minced jalapenos. Not much, maybe a teaspoon or two. You can also add some essence of lime, if you like lime. In case you dont know what essence is, that's very finely grated skin from a fresh lime. Then I sprinkle some cayenne pepper over it - YUM! I wont tell you how much, just do it to taste. Careful when your sprinkling it not to get any up your nose. If you do, be careful not to sneeze in the popcorn, unless you're the only one eating it.
You're going to pop this corn in the microwave, that's how the Presto Popper works, which means you just press the popcorn button on your microwave. While you're waiting for it to pop, let me tell you a little bit more about the LAZARUS EFFECT and what it means to you as a real estate professional. Lazarus is currently selling real estate, but this may not be the best use of his talents so in order to get him thinking, the Powers of Providence are bringing the industry to its knees. Lazarus, being a rather stubborn soul, is being forced to his knees as well. You can rest assured, when GOD is done dealing with Lazarus, the real estate market will be back on track. Until then, well, we could be in for a nasty ride. In the mean time, if I found out I was in the same ship as Lazarus I tell you what I'd do: I'd do my damndest to toss that Jonah of a trouble maker overboard!
So when your popcorn is done, there is only one more thing you need: Limonazo. This is a salt and lemon powder that really adds the ZING to the thing. Add it to taste. I don't dispense it through the little holes myself - I use the BIG hole and dump it on (but - I also have high blood pressure).
