when I was a kid, we had a tradition:
++popcorn for supper on Sunday night,
to give Mom a break from work in the kitchen, we’d make
++popcorn for supper on Sunday night,
+++++Sunday noon was the biggest meal of the week,
+++++++(I don’t know why that was, but)
+++++after church we always had plenty to eat
+++++++(meatloaf and mashed potatoes),
+++++Sunday evening we weren’t that hungry at all,
+++++so we’d snack on something salty and crunchy and small.. (yum)

we might slice some apples and Velveeta cheese to eat with
++popcorn for supper on Sunday night,
or grocery store ice cream, anything sweet goes with
++popcorn for supper on Sunday night,
+++++my father’s family did it when he was a boy
+++++++(youngest of 8 children)
+++++they didn’t have much, but they found ways to enjoy
+++++++(small things they shared together…)

+++heat the oil with just 2 kernels, when they pop you know it’s hot enough,
+++add the rest, throw on the lid,
+++then shake a bit until you hear the popping stop,
+++pour it in your biggest bowl, sprinkle salt,
+++add some melted margarine, there’s enough for everyone…

when I was a kid, we had this tradition..
we all need a break from work in the kitchen,
++let’s make popcorn for supper on Sunday night…
