My five year old stepson is mildly obsessed with dill, and I may or may not be responsible for that. It's important to me to teach him where his food comes from, and that means we spend a lot of time working together in the garden. (His favorite thing is to water the plants, my favorite thing is when he doesn't accidentally 'weed' the vegetables.) Everything tastes better if you had a hand in creating it and that is evident by his desire to snack on fresh dill everytime we are in the backyard.
My stepson also loves popcorn and movie night! These made great rewards for an afternoon of hard work. Last time I was at Walmart I stocked up on Pop Secret popcorn to keep on hand for an easy movie night appetizer, but sometimes it's fun to jazz it up a little! So today we are combining his love of dill and popcorn to make a tantalizing dill pickle popcorn treat!
Dill pickle popcorn is so easy to make, you can assemble your spices in the time it takes for the popcorn to pop! Plus, right now my dill is ready to harvest so it is a perfect time to take advantage of summer's fresh bounty!
Another thing to take advantage of right now is free movie tickets! Buy any 3 Pop-Secret items between 7/31 – 8/31 and get a Free ticket to the Fantastic Four movie (up to $5) while supplies last. I know my wife will be thrilled when I tell her about that, she loves action movies! And I love a happy wife!
