While fossicking about the kitchen for a snack late one night, I sorta accidentally stumbled upon an altogether salubrious combo. I never would have planned to have these two things together, but now that I have, I think my hippocampus is irreversibly altered.
Now, it's better than it sounds, so promise me you'll try it before you dismiss it out of hand. Alrighty then.
Earl Grey + Popcorn.
It's addictive, trust me. But you have to do it just so to make this pair sing:
1. The popcorn needs a little butter and sea salt, but nothing else.
2. The Earl Grey needs milk and sugar. (Actually, I use agave nectar.) I usually drink it black, but up against popcorn it needs to be tricked up a little.
(Oh, and if you can froth the milk, so much the better. I love frothing milk. It gives me an excuse to say froth. Froth froth frothity froth. Frothy frithery froth. Froth frother frothest. You need to say froth sometimes, too, don't you? And I bet you didn't even know before now.)
It's just a serendipitous blend of crunchy, salty, sweet and creamy. And it's especially yummy with a good book and a big comfy chair.
So I told you mine; now tell me yours. Have any food combo quirks at your house?
Cheddar + Oreos?
Pretzels + Nutella?
