BBQ Ranch Popcorn recipe - a fun way to jazz up a plain bag of popcorn! And so easy!

Happy almost Friday!

Ugh, guys, I’ve had a week.

Let me tell you what happened on Monday. I think I may have mentioned that Fat Baby (who isn’t a baby) couldn’t find his shoes one morning last week and after searching the entire house, I gave up and we went to Target to buy new ones.

So he was about an hour late to school. The first time he’s ever been late. Whatever. Not a big deal.

Except apparently it is. Because on Monday, I get a letter from the school saying that he has lunch detention the next day for being late a total of 60 minutes for the school year.

He’s 4.

A four year old in detention.

Have you ever heard of anything more ridiculous?

So I immediately got in my car and drove the school and told them they could kiss my you-know-what.

Just kidding! I should have though.

I kept it together until they told me he’d sit in in-school suspension through lunch AND recess. Ohhh heeeeeeck no.

Long story short, first thing the next morning I got a call from the assistant principal telling me that they’ve since changed their policy (since yesterday? really?) and he will not have to serve lunch detention.

I mean, seriously? I wanna know who decided detention was a good idea for preschoolers. I have a few things to say to that jerk.

I had popcorn and wine for dinner that night. Because duh.

I am absolutely obsessed with this BBQ Ranch Popcorn! It’s so easy – you just toss freshly popped popcorn with a packet of ranch mix, paprika, and brown sugar. I know it sounds like a weird combo but it is so delicious!
