We danced with Daddy.
We enjoyed cake. The girls each had their own individual princess cakes while the rest of us dined on the castle.
The biggest hit of the party was my caramel corn. I almost didn't make it. It was kinda a last minute addition to my list of treats. I used my Mom's recipe. The Dude swears I've never made it for him...he lies. Anyway, I thought I'd share it with ya.
Mamma Cat's Caramel Corn
Air popped popcorn or stove top popcorn (just don't use microwaved)
1 Cup butter
2 Cups brown sugar
1/2 Cup Karo Syrup
1 tsp. Salt
1 T vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
I honestly don't know the exact measurment of popcorn. I always just make enough to fill a roasting pan 3/4 of the way to the top. Pop your popcorn and pour into roasting pan. In medium saucepan, melt butter. Add Karo syrup, brown sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 5 mins without stirring. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and baking soda. **When you add the baking soda, it's going to look like it's out of control, calm down, it's normal**. Pour mixture over popcorn, stir to coat. Place in pre heated 250 degree oven. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes. Stir every ten. Pour caramel corn out onto waxed paper or newspaper to cool. Enjoy!
