I’m going to be totally upfront with you, this recipe is one that I like, and our daughters like, but Cade is not a big fan. Which is weird because he’s the coconut lover out of all of us but I guess this recipe just wasn’t for him. I loved it though. Little C especially loved it. She was shoveling the coconut oil kettle corn in as fast as she could. So I guess this is for when we have our girls’ night in and watch a movie and the old man can go play basketball with the guys.
Which is ok by me, I love having those unplugged moments with the girls. Sometimes I’ll start to feel crazy stressed about life, family and these two busy girls (I know, I only have two so who am I to feel busy, right?) and then I’ll unplug from my own needs and social life and just focus on having fun with two girls that are growing up way too fast. It works every time. I guess it’s not really that I’m stressed, it’s that I’ve let my priorities get all mixed up and when that’s not balanced then I don’t feel the peace I need to be a good person and mom. But coconut oil kettle corn and a little Tinker Bell with the girls and all is well in the world. Am I right?
