Princess Popcorn

Here is the popcorn I made for the YM/YW Baked Goods Auction.
It's super cute and sparkly too!

Princess Popcorn

4 cups of popcorn (I used Orville's Tender White)
2 cups Trix or Fruit Loops cereal
1 tsp to 1 TBSP edible glitter or colored sugar (I used the edible glitter)

Mix popcorn and cereal together. Place in cute bowl or bucket. Sprinkle with glitter and enjoy!

I also added a princess notebook and pencil for that extra special touch!

Tool of the Month - Avocado Masher

I love guacamole, so this tool is perfect for me. It's only 2" in diameter, so it will fit inside small bowls nicely. You can also use it for making egg salad.

4 ripe Haas avocados
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
8 dashes Tabasco sauce
½ cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded, and small-diced

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl. Immediately add the lemon juice, Tabasco, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife (or your Avocado Masher), slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
