A Brand New Series for a Brand New Year: Favorites!

My friend Da’Lynn, a fellow Crew team member and blogger, has tossed around an idea of a 52 week series.  52 weeks?  That’s a post a week?  What on earth could I write about and have enough material for 52 blog posts! 

I stewed.  I pondered. I showered.  (Hey I do some of my best planning and thinking in the shower!) Inspired by discussions with my family about favorites (e.g. favorite Doctor, favorite episode) I realized I could come up with 52 different favorites. I could broaden the topic to include *anything* from books, to shampoos, songs, musicians, toilet paper, food (or favorite way to cook eggs, favorite breakfast meat, favorite pasta shape).  I think the list could be endless and I’ll have plenty of material for a 52 week series.

Want to join me?  I’ve decided that I’d like bring my friends with me on this journey of discovery (who knows what favorites I’ll find along the way!) so I’m making this series my first ever hosted by me link up!  You don’t have to participate every week.  I’d love it if you included my blog button for the link up but I’m only going to require that you include, somewhere in your post, a link back to my blog. Now on to the first favorite of the year!

52 Weeks of Favorites:  #Week 1  Favorite Snack:  Popcorn!

I love popcorn. I might almost be willing to go so far as to say that I am addicted to this popular snack.  This past summer I even wrote a recipe for making my favorite snack.  Using the stir crazy and using coconut oil is indeed my favorite way to make popcorn at home. But I love lots of different kinds of popcorn.

If I’m at Target, I have to buy popcorn from the snack shop on the way out. The other day, I even asked my husband to pick some up when he was on his daddy/daughter date with Tailorbear.

52 Week Series #1 Favorite Snack is Popcorn

I don’t know what it is about Target popcorn. It could be the way it is made or the oil used. It might be the seasonings but it I like it.

I used to love popcorn in the movie theater but it doesn’t seem to taste as good as it did when I was a teenager.  I still must have popcorn when I go to the movies, a rare occasion.

I like Kettle corn and flavored popcorn. The cub scouts/boy scouts have an excellent chocolate popcorn. The peanut butter flavor is awesome as well.

My favorite afternoon snack is popcorn.  What is your favorite snack?  What is your favorite anything? Link up your own post about your favorite anything!

  1. This is a great idea. I'll have to think about this one...most of my favorite things revolve around food - brownies, mochas, toast.... That makes for a boring post. ;) I'll be back hopefully! Heather @ A Nurse's Wildflowers

  9. I always have trouble choosing just one favorite of anything. LOL I will link up whenever I can, but I won't commit to all 52 weeks! This week it happens that I shared the recipe for a favorite holiday snack from my childhood, so I will link that up. :-) Fun!

    By the way, I don't care for regular popcorn much, but caramel corn.... YUMMMM!!

  11. I love your idea of favorites! I'll link right back with you any time mine fits with that, or sometimes maybe a post not with my Sharing Your Childhood series may still fit your favorites. :) I appreciate the link back and can't wait to read with you this year!

    My favorite snack is probably... chips. I used to do the tortilla chips with salsa thing until it was a detriment to my health! LOL
