Lilly Pulitzer Popcorn

So as you can tell from my last post I am a huge cookbook collector. Another goodie that I found is Lilly Pulitzer's entertaining guide books. One quick recipe that I love is a popcorn recipe.

16 cups of freshly popped pop corn
1/2 stick of melted butter
1 cup of grated Parmigiano cheese
LOTS of fresh ground pepper.

So you put the popcorn in a big bowl, pour butter over it and toss. Then sprinkle cheese and toss again. Take your pepper mill and grind till you can't grind no more!!!!!! Yum!!! Quick and easy and great. I usually break the recipe down to five cups of popcorn, one tablespoon of melted butter maybe plus another teaspoon and 1/4 cup of great Parmigiano  with a ton of pepper. 

Lilly serves this at outdoor movie viewing parties. What a great idea to have a out door movie viewing party!!! You could set up your TV out side and play a movie. Put out some lawn chairs and a set up a candy bar maybe make pizza, cocktails. Have a theme for the night like Gangster Movies, Black and White Movie night, chick flicks, etc, etc. Great summer party idea. Or if your supper high end you get a projection tv system and a huge screen and set it up in you back yard. That Lilly, I just love that lemonade making Palm Beach social light:)
