White Truffle Popcorn

The first thing we always ask my friend R when she gets back from a movie date is simple and the answer is determinative:  Did he offer to buy you popcorn?  Yes means a second date is still in the realm of possibility.  No means she will be ignoring all future texts.  The logic is actually quite sound:  if they guy is too cheap to spring for overpriced snacks at the movies, while on a date, he's probably not going to be willing to spring for anything, ever.  Secondly, and more importantly, if it's not about the money and the guy just doesn't like a good healthy amount of snacking, then he just doesn't have a prayer.  The same logic goes for ordering appetizers and desserts at a restaurant, as well., popcorn.  I love popcorn and anything with truffle oil.  The two combined equal my new favorite late afternoon snack.  I don't know about you, but I find it completely impossible to get from lunch to dinner with a little snack in between... or two.

White Truffle Popcorn 

Pop a bag of low cal popcorn and add a few drizzles of white truffle oil, salt and pepper and shake it all up in the bag. That's it! You could also add some shaved parmesean to glitz it up for a perfect party nibbler.

A luxurious treat on an overcast day in Paris.
