|"One of life's simple pleasures, a whole bowl of popcorn to myself"|

Yes, I replied. How do you make it, she asked? Wow, wait till I tell my mom, our microwave is broken. Odd but believable!

These kids really don't know! OK young ones, it's time for Grandma's ancient recipe! According to Orville: 1/2 cup corn, 3 Tbsp. oil, and a heavy pan, oh and don't forget the stove!
