Kind of funny
I have been telling myself 'I will not make popcorn until I get home. I will not make popcorn until I get home. I will not.." you get the picture, I'm sure.

Anyway, one of my coworkers just made that resolve much easier by burning a bag of popcorn in the microwave.


Phew!

Okay, I was just thinking about making some spiced popcorn, but now I am going to make spiced pecans.

They are pretty yummy.

Spiced Pecans

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
2 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 (12-ounce) packages ( about 8 cups) pecan halves
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt

Melt butter in a large saucepan; stir in cumin and red pepper, and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat; add pecans, sugar, and salt, stirring to coat.
Spread pecans in a single layer in 2 (15 x 10-inch) jellyroll pans.
Bake at 300*F (150*C) for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool and store in an airtight container.
Makes 8 cups.

That burned smell was common at an old job and pretty much killed ALL desire I have for popcorn out of the movie theater (and the prices kill it there).
