Costco Size Me

Sometimes I overdo it. I mean, really. Like, ok, today I was at Costco and purchased an eight-pound jug of popcorn. Eight pounds. It's literally the size of a gallon of milk. It seemed like such a good idea at the time because, well, because I really like making homemade popcorn (mostly thanks to a cool popcorn maker my wife's friend got us for our wedding). But eight pounds? Sheesh. It will probably last me until I retire.

Hey Simon,
If the popcorn is Orville Redenbacher's I'll buy some of it from you if you think you have "overdone" it.

you can dehydrate a gallon of milk and easily store milk powder for decades.... is there any way to make popcorn powder?

This made me laugh, a lot. Thank you :D And enjoy the popcorn.

Maybe you could package it in little packages and send to friends and family ...? ;)

Thanks for the offer, Mom. :) I'll see how things are looking when we come down in November.

I'm not sure if there's a way to make popcorn powder, but I just finished the last of the batch I made on Thursday, so apparently it does keep for a while.

Thanks, chaviva. I'm glad you enjoyed the post. :)
