National Pink Day

I totally love pink and so does my grand-daughter. The funny thing is one of my oldest friends loves the color pink as well. Yes , he is a boy and that just goes to show that every one can love the color pink.

One of my favorite cartoon characters the Pink Panther sports the color pink quite well.

October or any time pink can be used to bring awareness to a great cause. Breast cancer Awareness

Pink popcorn is an awesome tasty treat and yes it is pink. You can make your own as well

2/3 cup popcorn kernels , popped
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup half and half
1 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
6 drops red food coloring (or any other color you'd like)

Pour popped popcorn into two very large mixing bowls, set aside. In a large saucepan whisk together sugar, half and half, corn syrup and salt. Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly until sugar has dissolved. Heat mixture to 232 degrees, stirring occasionally. Immediately remove from heat and pour in vanilla and food coloring. Drizzle mixture over popped popcorn. Gently stir popcorn until mixture is evenly coated and coating begins to dry (you'll notice the popcorn kernels separating). Pour mixture onto waxed paper and allow to dry about 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
