Or at least, it sure feels like it! I just made this phenomenal (and easy!) kettle corn for the second time this month, and ate probably 4 cups of it. Ouch! That’s hard for an already-squished belly to take. But Joy’s right…it’s like an addictive drug.
Tip: Don’t use old kernels. We bought new before we made it a second time and they popped up SO much lighter and fluffier.
Pregnant rant: Why is it that, when I tell people I’ve popped a lot earlier with this baby than I did with Anja, they feel compelled to console me with, “Oh, I don’t think you’re even showing…” That is NOT comforting, people! At 14 weeks, I’ve gained 8 pounds, and a lot of it is in my hinder and my thighs, just like last time, but my belly is already far enough out that I have resorted to maternity skirts (no pants yet…still using my Bella Bands and waiting it out) for comfort, and most of my normal shirts are a smidge too tight to be appropriate. So to gain 6 inches in the waist and be told I’m not showing…that’s just an insult to how I looked before. I was not this fat! I swear! End rant. The hormones, they made me do it.
