Pizza Style Popcorn

This is sort of an updated version of Pizza Flavored Popcorn that I posted back in October of 2012 when it was National Popcorn Poppin’ Month. Today is National Popcorn Day and as pizza and popcorn are two of our other favorite food groups, I thought this one would be outstanding for Super Bowl or even just the play-off games. I took a bunch of recipes I have found over the years and kind of put them all together to come up with this concoction that I really think the men will love along with everyone else!

Pizza and Popcorn, it doesn't get any better than this!

Italian Lentil Soup

Tomorrow is National Bean Day and I guess that would include any type of bean so I choose lentils. Since this afternoon is another damp and cloudy day, a nice bowl of homemade soup seems like a good thing to curl up with and chase away the inside chill that seems to have taken over these old bones. This soup has one of husband’s favorite ingredients, pepperoni! Whenever I make homemade pizza, I have to completely cover the top half of his with pepperoni while I on the other hand smother mine with chopped onions and peppers, much more healthy on my half!
