Turkey Tracks:  June 27, 2013

She’s Back

 

Two new nests have appeared on the far right side of the porch.

She’s sitting on the furthest away one.

She’s a ROBIN!

Phoebe has been singing his heart out for days now, and last night I noticed that the pair is settling back into the nest over the kitchen door.

So, another nesting is starting…

Summer is such fun…

Is Popcorn Giving You Heart Disease?

I love popcorn!!

But I gave away my microwave and quit using microwave popcorn years ago.

(Giving away the microwave is a whole other conversation we could have.  But note that I do not miss the microwave.)

At first, it seemed so easy to pop popcorn in the microwave.

But, then I read that like teflon, microwave popcorn contains a very dangerous chemical–one that is being connected now to heart disease.

I bought an air popper, which pops in no time.  I add some sea salt and LOTS AND LOTS of healthy, gorgeous butter.  It’s so much better than the microwave stuff, and the air popper is just about as fast.  Plus, air poppers are under $30.

Here’s the web site for the whole story:
