The Best Butter that I have ever had in my 54 years!


Sorry everyone, I flaked on my Monica’s Weekend Recipes post. And now it is the Start/Sunday of a new week. But since the weekend isn’t officially over, I decided to talk just a little about one of my favorite ingredients – BUTTER.

I grew up on margarine. It was highly advertised as the greatest thing since sliced bread when my mother was coming up. She was born in the 1930’s. It was so in vogue, that if real butter was the only thing available, they would include little yellow dye packs to make your butter appear to be margarine. So, yes, my family was margarine focused.

I think that I discovered real butter in my teens and talked my parents into buying it sometimes. At this point in my life, I only purchase the real deal. Julia Child always said, on her cooking shows, that, Everything Tastes Better with Butter! Both she and her husband both lived until they were 92 years old. I figure, it can’t be that bad for you.

Over the years, butter has come back into style. You can find many health oriented articles that tout butter as the end all, be all, addition to the mix. I just LOVE it. I’m thinking that eating butter all day long would be ill advised, but some is not only quite tasty, but good for you!

A day or two ago, I decided to buy the highest priced butter at our local grocery store – Food Lion. You get 2 pounds for $10.00. I have been eyeing it for a while and decided to take the plunge. Boy, was it worth it! I may just leave my husband and marry this butter.

Enjoy your week. Another recipe, and lots of butter, await!
