Make No Bones About It We're Vegan

A Narcoleptic's Food Blog

My sleep habits are funky lately. If you stopped by because you are vegan for health reasons, you came to the wrong place. Sorry. We're ethical vegans over here in Veganville. If it was the 90's and I was a decade younger, (okay 20, 25 oh shush years younger), we'd be vegan straight edges here too.
Anyway let's discuss narcolepsy, shall we? Narcolepsy as anyone would tell you is characterized by scatter shot sleep patterns. Narcoleptics fall asleep at inopportune times like when triple chocolate chip cookies are supposed to be taken out of the oven. Remember when I gave in and got the most unugly crocs I could find? They are very comfy. Crocs are a big catalyst for narcolepsy. Anyway my snoozing function is off kilter. An intended one hour catnap could morph into six or even a baker's dozen. By the time I drag my groggy ass to the kitchen to cook dinner, kale and wilted greens become less of an option. Homemade kettle corn usually does the trick and provides the needed nutrients.
I started recording again and am working on a new show. I know the adrenaline rush has effected my quotidian shut-eye. If you are good I'll give you a peek at the new project at the end of this post.

Kettle Corn- (My keyboardist makes it in a Whirly Pop but you can use a big heavy pan)
1/4 C sugar
1/2 C popcorn kernels
1/3 C mix of canola/olive oil
3/4 tsp sea salt

Heat oil in a large pot or Whirly Pop over medium-high heat. Add popcorn and sugar giving it a quick stir and then cover with lid. Once popcorn starts popping, pick it up and give it a quick shake every few seconds until popping slows down, between 3-4 minutes. Remove immediately from heat and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with sea salt and chow down and checkout this Cd..
Our keyboardist, Larry Tasse suffers from the same syndrome I do.

Robby will don this shirt for the next shoot. What was he thinking?


  1. Mmm that sounds delicious and nutritious! If I made it for dinner though, I'd end up increasing my work instead of reducing it because one helping of popcorn is never enough for my hubby!

    I'm less of a narcoleptic and more of a facebookoleptic. Led to a lot of burnt basmati rice.:oP

  2. Thanx. The 1/2 C makes a good amount.
    I could go for a bowl of unburnt basmati right now. I love the aroma.
