Running around like a chicken with your heat cut off? Goodness knows that's what I've been doing the past few days getting ready for the holidays! I wish the movie Multiplicity was real and I could clone an extra-productive version of myself. Maybe one that doesn't have a habit of checking instagram whenever her phone is in reach ;)

When life gets busy, it's nice to have a quick and nutritious snack on hand. This recipe for nori popcorn makes an extra-large batch, so you've got enough for movie night, plus extra to much on throughout the week. Pack an extra baggie of popcorn in case you get stuck in mall traffic with a growling stomach!
