In the up-coming hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it's important to take some time for yourself. To unwind, laugh and relax. One fun way to do that is to plan a movie night with family and friends. Make some fun different popcorn seasonings to sprinkle on plain popcorn and maybe a special popcorn snack.
For our movie night, we had seasonings of such fun flavors: BBQ, Chili, Vanilla Spice and Chocolate. Also offered was Chewy Graham Popcorn. (the recipe is below)
Pick a fun, light-hearted movie; something that you don't have to pay 100% attention to in order to get the gist of the film. We watched "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock. A laugh-out-loud fun movie.
How do you like to relax with your top people during the busy holiday times? Any traditional get-togethers that you do every year?
Chewy Graham Popcorn
10 cups popped popcorn
1-1/2 cups raisins

There will probably be plenty left to send everyone home with a bag of their own!
Happy Movie watching!
