Parmesan popcorn + TLC.

I am sure that on a rainy day with a headache to boot and nothing quite working out on top of it, my readers all lie down on the couch and watch documentaries on Discovery Channel about the life of ibex in Southern Caucasia – in Russian with Romanian subtitles. 

I, however, go to bed, call my daughters and watch reality TV with them. 
It is very relaxing and very, very funny, because of the girls’ synchronized running commentary. 

In case you also prefer this type of intellectual entertainment on days like this and should you have watched all episodes of Shopping Queen already, I have a tip for you today:  

Since the beginning of April the TV station TLC is available in all of Germany at no cost – with a huge selection of exactly these kinds of shows for lazy headache afternoons or evenings in bed. 

Most of the formats originate in the US or England, some of them are surely a matter of taste and I wouldn’t necessarily watch them, but go ahead and form your own opinion.   

The following we at least love watching: 

- "Say yes to the dress" – several times a week, e.g. Mondays at 8:55 pm.  
- "Fashionistas” – a bit like Shopping Queen, but very American!, e.g. every Monday at 9 pm. 
- "Strandhaus gesucht" – aren’t we all looking for a beach house? Right! Always on on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm. 

(In case you haven’t seen TLC when zapping through the channels, simply start a station scan on your TV or receiver.) 

In addition, a savory popcorn recipe for you – salted popcorn is much more popular here and the sugary kind is hard to find. 
When we recently asked for sugary popcorn in a huge movie theater that had an immense selection of candy, they replied: 
"No, we are not THAT fancy."

Parmesan popcorn.

1 cup freshly popped popcorn (follow package instructions) 
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp sweet paprika 
4 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan

First pop your popcorn in a casserole (preferably with a heavy bottom). 
Take casserole off the stove immediately after the popcorn is done popping and let butter melt in it. 
Mix with the popcorn, sprinkle with paprika and Parmesan, and mix well again. 
The Parmesan slightly melts on the popcorn; it tastes delicious! 

My advice:
If you have truffle oil in your pantry replace the paprika with 1-2 Tbsp oil.

OK, now you have popcorn, a show, now all you have to do is find company with a sense of humor who will commentate every scene for you. 
But I cannot take care of everything!
