GRUBY CANDY, better known in my circle as Bacon Popcorn

I believe that dear Bernita once referred to my blog/writing as gruby candy, which I took to be something good, but perhaps a little too 'dirty' to share... Way okay for a erotica writer! :p Woot! but, then again, I might have taken that particular post completely wrong. And, you will correct me if I did, right Bernita??


Dennie, a new reader here showed interest in my bacon popcorn recipe so I figured I would post it here and "share the Love," as my GF puts it.


6 to 8 slices of bacon, uncooked
2 to 3 handsful of popping corn kernels
1/3 to 1/2 stick of butter
garlic and salt

In sauce pan, cut bacon strips into 1" chunks. Over medium to medium high heat, fry to nearly crisp in bottom of saucepan. Add popping corn and cover with lid. Pop corn, pouring off the popped kernels and bacon chunks as they rise to top of pan. When popping stops, add butter to pan and melt. (Do not use margarine, as the water in it makes the corn chewy *gag*) Drizzle melted butter over popped corn, toss. Season to taste.

WARNING: not an acceptable food for those with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, hyper tension or squeamish tendancies toward fat or meat.

Great wintertime treat. Goes well with WWE, UFC and action movies. This is a damn good snack with beer, or any mixer with Coke. I prefer Captain Morgan's Tattoo and Coke, as everyone should get "a little Captain in you!"

Oh, good for you, Dennie! You'll have to let me know how you like it. Are you on Yahoo or MSN messegner?? I'll give you my ID so you can contact me directly.

Bernita said...

Don't think I did.
Sounds too clever for me.
And put this way it sounds bitchy.
I'm not usually bitchy - unless someone's been bitchy to me first.
Be well.

Goodness! I tried in vain to find the comment in which that (or simialr terminology) was used in and I could not find it! :(

I did not in any way intend for it to sounds as though you were being bitchy, Bernita. It was a playful comment, and I meant it and took it as noting more than that.

I hope there has been no offense taken, because there certainly wasn't any meant.

Sorry, Bernita. *damn near in tears*

Would not like to think I came across as casually bitchy - or prissy corrective, either.

Dennie McDonald said...

Savannah Jordan said...
