Yes, we are going to be out of town for a few days and so we'll be eating lots of hot dogs!  No, I am so kidding!  I'm not quite sure what we will be making so I just did up until Wednesday. lets talk some CARAMEL CORN!

Oh, you guys....This is to die for yummy!
My Mom ALWAYS made this awesome caramel corn at Christmas time to give to friends.. It was our "neighbor gift".  We would help mom make it and we didn't use a popcorn popper.  We did it all on the stove top, and it is was so annoying,  we would've rather been out playing in the snow than doing this!  But, it really does make all the difference.  AND I would consider it....the good old fashioned way!  The funny thing is, I don't even own a popcorn popper. This is the only way that I make popcorn now.   

All I do is cover the bottom of the pan with canola oil. The oil goes about 1/2 way up the corn kernel. (I don't measure) I add enough popcorn to cover the bottom of the pan without crowding the popcorn.  
Cover the pan with a lid.  DO NOT uncover it.  When you hear the kernels starting to pop, slide the pan back and forth on the burner until it all pops.  

Seriously... it makes the best popcorn ever.
