I usually just wrap the butter up in the paper it comes in and put it in the fridge. My mom always kept our butter in the fridge growing up. Well, technically she kept it in the freezer and made it impossible to spread. Impossible. I've been wanting a cute little white butter dish for a while, but I'm reluctant to spend the $12.00 on one. While we were visiting some of my parent's friends in North Carolina, I saw that they kept their butter under a dome on the counter. I already had the dome, so I gave it a try.
I've found that room temperature butter spreads on toast like a dream. A dream! But Cory says its going to kill us and refuses to eat it. I argue that it hasn't seemed to hurt the seventy year old people that keep it on the counter in North Carolina, but nothing will sway him. What say you? Are we going to die butter related deaths?
P.S. Kristen and Lance let me take some baby announcement pictures for them, and they turned out soooo cute (if I do say so myself.) I've never really taken pictures of people before, so it was good practice. Congratulations guys! Click here to see the pictures on their blog.(It would be confusing if I posted them here, I think.)
P.P.S. We won an Ipad 2 this week!!! We renewed our lease early, so we were entered into a drawing and WON! I've never won anything before! My sister Kourtney has all the good luck (she won a computer in a drawing, found a giant diamond ring in the street once, etc.) and my sister Jackie has all the bad luck (she was once punched in the face by a random man, aka the story of how she had a black eye at my wedding) so I've been content with neutral luck so far in my life. Maybe the tides have turned?? We'll see.
