News Flash: Butter

I bargained with myself that I wouldn’t blog unless I had something really important to say.  Thus far, I’ve been silent.  Until now, that is.

Did you know that some people keep butter on their counter so that it’s spreadable?  This shocked the pants off of me.  And when I mentioned this incredible phenomenon to my mom, she said that of course, her mother used to do that too.


How this tradition got lost in my family line, I have no idea (food safety perhaps?).  But this I know:  henceforth butter will be stored on my counter top.  It has solved a whole myriad of butter problems I’ve encountered over the years.  Who knew?

Announcement over.  You may go back to Facebooking.
