It's funny how many memories are associated with food.  Another blogger made a simple comment about making "real" popcorn rather than the microwave popcorn and all these memories of "real" popcorn came to mind.

When I was a kid, Friday night was popcorn night. It was the night that The Dukes of Hazard was on so of course it was special!  My dad would put in a ton of oil, pop the corn and then melt an entire stick of popcorn and drizzle it on top.  Boy, THAT was good popcorn!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it. 

Now I sit and eat my 100 calorie portion of popcorn which is WAY more expensive, tastes just "okay" and is probably full of chemicals and who knows what else. 

It is different, but I'm not sure if it's necessarily better.  Are the chemicals and fake butters that we are putting in our bodies really helping us?  Yes, it's nice to have that pre-portioned pack of popcorn or whatever but it's hard to know if it's really helping us. Wouldn't it be nice to just be able to have the control to just eat a small bowl of real butter clad popcorn and have it be enough? 

I don't have that control and it is infuriating!  So for now, I stick with the 100 calories chemical filled popcorn.

I didn't post yesterday, I just forgot.  I ate about 1700 calories yesterday and about 1400 today.
