Cinemas in Scotland and 'Butterkist', oh my!!! such marvellous memories! Your recipe Doug sounded SO familiar that I knew you had to also, and unconsciously, be describing BUTTERKIST....

I did a search and low and behold....

There were two cinemas and one theatre in the street where I lived in Edinburgh, at least one outing a week at night to one cinema, and on Saturday mornings (all kids movies ...usually Roy Rogers, Lone Ranger, cartoons) at the other cinema. Happy times!

What memories you bring back!!

I was raised on a dairy farm, when we did the evening milking we used to listen to the radio, all those neat shows and the Lone Ranger was one of them. I knew from the radio show what he looked like, so the first time I saw him on the screen, I was really disappointed

THAT was not my Lone Ranger!

The power if imagination.......

....and not a very happy memory by the sounds of it Mike! I saw Roy Rogers in Edinburgh, brought his horse to the hotel window. A very very strange appearance to my eyes (I was 8) but cheered along with the rest of the hundreds of people who were there also anyway.

Re: Popcorn Balls

my attempt at popcorn balls was some years ago now. I chose to try making caramel ones (the recipe looked amazing). It was for Christmas & I was having about 5 guest over. What a mistake. It was soooo messy & impossible to work with. I've never tried again since. I don't know if I ever will, but I sure do like to eat them. Yum Yum.

Re: Popcorn Balls

Messy generally means either the caramel wasn't cooked enough (too thin) or not enough butter was used on the hands (can't stress enough how important that is).

It's a little messy, sure, but that's also part of the fun.
