Today tip: Microwave Popcorn (on the cheap, but better than the pre-packaged kind)
You will need:
1. bulk popcorn
2. the "butter" of your choice
3. plain old brown paper lunch bags (you can re-use the same bag up to 3-4 times)
4. a microwave
Put 1/3 cup of corn in the bag. Fold the bag down about three times, crease it, and lay it on its side in the microwave. I hit the "Popcorn" button on the microwave and that is the perfect amount of time in my microwave, but they all vary. Experiment with what works best in your microwave. Remove and open the bag to let the steam escape. Meanwhile, melt your butter. Dump it in a bowl, butter it, salt it and enjoy it. Cheaper and healthier.
