Spicy Sriracha Popcorn

“You all recovered from the weekend?” he asked from behind the tall counter. I faltered and wondered internally. Recovered? Was I sick? Was he confusing me for someone else? I looked at him bewildered as he selected the best piece of halibut to butcher for me.

My puzzled face must have said it all. “The game? All the football?” he followed up, motioning football passes with the raw fish.

“Oh! God no, I don’t watch football!” I laughed. “It bores me!”

My butcher looked at me as if I had three eyes.

Yes, it’s true, I may be the only person in the Bay Area who had absolutely zero interest in watching the 49′rs play their critical game last Sunday, and while many may not understand, football is just something I can not sit through. I’ve tried. But the start-stop-start-stop rhythm irritates me, the pace I find extremely vexing. Just run across the field already!

It. Takes. Too. Long.

I’d rather bake some scones.

So come Superbowl, I’ll be keen on the commercials, but as for the game itself, well, while it would have been nice if San Francisco could have made it, I probably wouldn’t have even watched it then.

But for all you football fans, I’m excited for you, I really am. I know it’s a big deal. I have something that is worthy of parking it in front of the television for couple of hours, whether it’s a big game, the Winter Olympics (now that I am really excited for!), or a good movie: Spicy Sriracha Popcorn. Buttery and fiery, this is my new favorite way to gobble up stove popped popcorn. I’m sharing it on Wayfair.com today. I warn you, though, it’s addicting.

Please join me and find the recipe for Spicy Sriracha Popcorn on Wayfair.com.

    Liren,
    HA! this post made me laugh. . I grew up in Texas, where as soon as you’re born, they put a football into your tiny little hands and teach you how to throw it. :) kidding .. but not really. :) I totally love watching football and basketball. . but what makes it fun for me is having good game day eats, beverages and friends around. makes all the difference! love this sriracha popcorn! got the recipe from wayfair.com.

      Oh yes, Texas! They are, indeed, serious about football there, aren’t they? My inlaws live down there, and I’ll never forget when I saw the signs on the lawn advertising high school football players and cheerleaders when they made the teams! Well, I agree with you that the fun of it is the game day eats — for that you can always count on me!

    I also was laughing!! I am Polish and football has never been my things. For that matter I am not into watching sports. I should be very carefully with this statement, especially here in US:) but I am a hug fan of popcorn. Typically with cinnamon and sugar but spicy also seems divine especially in the snowy weather. I will give a try soon!!!

    • Liren Baker replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 1:27 pm

      Ah cinnamon sugar popcorn, I love that, too! I’m so glad you can relate, Joanna! For me to watch a sport, it must be fairly fast paced (tennis, swimming, skiing) or artistic (figure skating, gymnastics)!

    I cannot wait to try this. I bet it’s as delicious and it sounds.

    I do not watch football either, yuck! But this popcorn sounds amazing, my fiance would love this.

    • Liren Baker replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 1:28 pm

      I hope your fiancé (and you!) like the popcorn. So glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like football!

    oh you are not alone! I am like you , not so crazy for football or any kind of such sports for that matter. Thankfully, my husband is also not all that crazy about it :) It was just our apt probably which was quiet ( we were watching movie) and we could hear all the shout and screams from the neighbor units :)
    This popcorn… can’t wait to try. Will happen this weekend probably. Love Sriracha.

    • Liren Baker replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 1:29 pm

      Yes! I remember hearing the neighbors’ yells, too. I’m personally relieved that I don’t lose my husband to Sunday football, either ;)

    You are hilarious! I am the SAME WAY. I could care less and I’d rather bake some scones. But I would definitely make this for the sports loving boyfriend that I have. ;)

    • Liren Baker replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 1:29 pm

      Oh good! You understand :) Well, hope the boyfriend approves!!

    Love your spiced up popcorn, this would be a perfect pre-dinner snack. I’m with you, I’d much rather bake scones too :).

      Heh heh, something told me that you would agree, Laura :) xo

    You know I’m the same way… though, I am fine with having a game on in the background while I do work. Something to tune in to when things get exciting. But, I agree, it takes WAY too long to get through a game. Heading over now to check out this popcorn! Love that you added spice to it!

    • Liren Baker replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 1:31 pm

      True, it is nice having background noise while working…I can’t wait for figure skating and downhill skiing and the Olympics, just for that :) Sometimes I think football was created for the ridiculous amount of commercials rather than the other way around!

    i am not much a football person but I love food during games – thats what gets me excited :)

    • Liren Baker replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 1:31 pm

      Totally agree, Dixya. I love game day foods! Thank goodness for that!

    Additionally you can capture audio with the microphone,
    line-in or speakers, depending on how you want it to be set up.
    For students, especially who major in art design or computer, it
    is common to have Photoshop classes during their terms.

    Part 7: The natives are getting restless,
    and one more filthy nasty bad beat. Nonetheless, there are best
    cheap HD camcorders which are being sold online.
    In many well-known blogs referring to software, e-learning and
    news release, you can easily find embedded video tutorials or online podcast play.

    In this area, you are allowed to customize the capture area
    by choosing “Keep Full Screen” or “Crop Region”, add
    sound effect to your video, adjust video frame rate, etc.
    In addition to capturing a video in real time, VSDC Free Screen Recorder is also able to create
    a file which only stores information about cursor movements,
    mouse clicks and presses of buttons on the keyboard.
    Being a screen recorder, Camtasia relies most on the visual and audio effects, so it’s their main goal to
    offer users a rich media support, which is in the same
    time easy to follow and implement. Today we got the magic of new products Sikma song Z500.
    This silence monitor option is especially useful when
    recording streaming audio and net congestion temporarily stops the stream.
    The graphics are some of the best I’ve seen in a MMORPG.
    If you have a lot money then something like the Sennheiser MKH20s are very good, if you are on a budget then something like a Shure SM63′s
    can also be quite reliable – but you get what you pay for most of the time.
    A good screencast projects an image of transparency, trust,
    and authenticity. Some programs can also allow you to record
    yourself via webcam as you explain or demonstrate something in front of your computer.
    Like most screen recording software, Demo – Creator allows you to record what happens on the
    computer screen. Itbears a wide range of applications in various fields typically in serialcommunication systems.
    You’ve just recommended violating the fifth of Robert Mc
    - Kee’s five unbreakable rules of screenwriting. I did have some
    issues with getting the patch to load, however a visit to help.

    With a bit more poking around in the WMFE I was able to find a one
    click command that solved the problem. If you consider that a movie is costly and
    a screencast is not engaging enough. Its recording capabilities involve real time recording and
    playback, as well as compatibility with all modern
    phone systems. According to David Battino, Vocoders have
    been a novelty staple in pop music for over 30 years [1].
    You can record Photoshop tutorials with screen
    recording software ( with editing features by adding description, animation and narration, then contribute them to Photoshop-related forums, streaming video
    sites and personal blogs. Suffice to say, they have video
    recording functions but not the best bet to record videos off You – Tube.
    At this point I was more than a little irritated that he would suggest that a brand new quad core laptop with a lot of system memory
    and plenty of video memory was somehow deficient.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours as of late, yet I by no means found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty value enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and
    bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
