What’s better than sitting around a campfire drinking beer? How bout swinging around a campfire drinking beer!
At least, that’s what Dave Chenango was thinking when he posted the idea of a DIY backyard swing circle:

Popcorn is probably one of my favorite snacks. I usually eat it plain, but every once in a while I will spoil myself and make it a sweet treat. This hot chocolate popcorn on Foodetti looks incredible. I think I will be making this one soon 🙂
