Friday Frivolity - Favorite Popcorn Toppings Edition

It's time for this week's edition of Friday Frivolity - the blog party for all things fun, funny, hopeful & happy!

At last week's party, we shared easy ways to get more active.

This week brings us National Popcorn Day, so I'm sharing our favorite toppings for this almost-nightly snack.

1. Olive Oil & Himalayan Salt

Side note: G gave me a tiny bottle of Truffle oil for Christmas (I could put truffles on everything) and it makes the best popcorn topping. (However, I only put this on popcorn when the Gs have gone to bed, because this stuff is PRICEY and I want it all all all for myself!)

This goes on every batch of popcorn we make. Sometimes we stop there, and sometimes we add something else on, like...

2. Lime "Shake Shake"

I'd started spraying my popcorn with lime and lemon juice years ago (I've used liquid aminos, too!), but a little shake (hence the term, "shake shake") of this stuff is just perfect for when we want all the sour crunch and none of the sogginess.

3. "Green Stuff"

G hunted this stuff down a couple of years ago when we were trying to figure out how to get something more nutritious into Gv's tummy than just bread, bread, bread. (At least it's my homemade bread, so that's actually pretty healthy...)

Of course, Gv never really ended up caring for this stuff on her food, but she loved it on popcorn -- and so did we -- so it's now become our favorite way to eat it!

4. Nutritional Yeast

Once upon a time, I sprinkled Parmesan cheese on popcorn, but this beats it every time and gives you the feeling of cheesiness without the cheese. We pair it with the "green stuff" to fix it in our "usual" way.

5. Spice of the Day

I like to get really creative with my popcorn flavors, so pretty much if it's something that adds flavor that's safe to consume, I'm trying it out on my popcorn.

And I mean anything. The most popular spices I'll grab are dill, curry, chili powder, garlic (of course) and Tony Chachere's.

What do you like on your popcorn?

Now time for the new stuff!
