The Tease
Don't feel like doing dinner and a movie? How about popcorn, beer and a DVD? Popcorn is a very healthy snack when you pop it yourself. Below is a simple recipe that will have her snatching up that last popped kernel before you do.

Time To Cook:
• All cooking levels: approximately 10 minutes
Popcorn is high in fiber, low in calories (if you don't add butter or too much olive oil), contains no sodium or sugar and is fat free.

• 2 tablespoons of popcorn kernels

• 1 tablespoon of canola oil

• 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

• Salt to taste

• Deep, large, nonstick pan with a lid or a stock pot with a lid

Don't forget your measuring cup and spoons!

Preparation (Do it!)
1) Heat your non-stick pan on a stove top burner at medium heat and add the canola oil.

2) Wait 30 seconds and add the popcorn kernels to the pan or pot.

3) Shake your kernels once in a while. Cook until the popping slows.

4) Remove from heat and place popcorn in the bowl. Add the olive oil, toss it and salt to taste. Note: Higher quality extra virgin olive oil works best.
