Dinner dilemma On the days I don't get home from school until 7 pm, it's extremely hard to work up any motivation to cook. So... popcorn to the rescue. No fuss, very little mess, and tasty goodness. I would have had the dip, but after having it for lunch, it didn't sound very appealing for dinner. Popcorn holds a special place in my heart as it was what my dad and I would always eat on Sunday evenings. We would have had a big Sunday lunch, so there was rarely dinner, just some popcorn to hold you over till morning. Because he worked 2nd shift for so long, this was my time with dad. When I go home now, the question is still "who's making the popcorn?"
