Then you need to watch the movie
The movie won an Oscar(2002)
 Best Screenplay, Written
 Directly for the Screen for
Julian Fellowes.
Yep, the same fellow behind 
Downton Abbey.
My friend, Nance lent me the movie.
It is her all time favorite.
And now mine.
Gosford Park also stars 
the wonderful Maggie Smith.

And your going to need a 
snack for the movie.
How about Microwave Caramel Corn?

Here is the recipe: 
6 qt. popped corn (unsalted)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
1/4 c. light corn syrup
1 c. brown sugar

Pop popcorn and put in large microwavable bowl. Set aside. 
Melt butter in a large measuring pitcher. 
Add brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and salt. 
Stir. Cook in microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir.
 Cook in microwave for additional 3 minutes. Remove and stir. 
Add baking soda and stir well. 
 Pour this mixture over the popped corn. 
 You probably won't get the popcorn all coated in this step. 
  Put the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
 Take out and stir again, mixing well.
 Put back in microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. 
 Remove and spread on a cookie sheet. Allow to cool.  
As it cools, gently break the pieces apart . 

SOOOOOO addicting!
Don't say I didn't warn ya.


  1. I've never heard of this movie. Do you think it would be in the library??

  2. Gosford Park! I have heard of it. I MUST find it. I wonder if Red Box will have it???? The popcorn sounds insanely good!!!
