In our first ever issue of Prairie Hive Magazine, we hosted an outdoor movie night perfect for kids and adults! Summer is the perfect time to host your own – with a DIY screen, comfy blankets and favorite movie snacks, you’re ready to go!

To kick things up a notch, we added some of our favorite gourmet popcorn recipes as well…
1/2 c. popcorn kernels, 1 T. bacon fat, 1/4 stick butter, melted,
1 T. maple syrup, 2 strips bacon, crispy.
Combine butter and maple syrup, set aside. Pop popcorn as described above, using bacon fat instead of oil. Drizzle butter/syrup mixture over popcorn, crumble bacon on top, and salt to taste. Serves around 4.
1/2 c. popcorn kernels, 1 T. vegetable oil, 1 T. curry powder
Place kernels and oil in popcorn popper or a pot with lid. Place on stove on high heat, covered. Moving kernels continuously, allow corn to pop. When finished, remove to serving bowl immediately. Add curry powder and salt to taste. Serves around 4.
Now sit back and enjoy the show!!!
