What was I thinking?

Even this much snow.....


Doesn't explain this much butter...


Even though we're in the midst of a record blizzard here in Maryland, I can't blame that on the amount of butter and margarine pictured above.   It pre-dates the predicted storm and last-minute stock up. 

When I cleaned out the fridge this week, I was shocked to find this amount of butter products.  It was like the fridge was a clown car - the sticks just kept coming.  I've never owned this much butter at one time - could be enough to last the rest of the year.  Unless I start serving butter soup for dinner. (hmm.. wonder if anyone has a recipe?)  I think the reason for this mass quantity is that my local grocery store had a sale, combined with the recent holidays, when apparently I thought I would do way more baking than I did.

Thought you all might find this as amusing as I did (or, I've lost you all forever).  In case you're still with me and are wondering, yes, I counted, there are 30 sticks/bowls of butter there.

Going down to record the podcast now.  Planing to update with photos, etc. tomorrow.

Thank you for the picture of the snow, misery loves company,where I live in Knoxville MD. we got almost 34 inches, OMG, will I ever get out, will they ever plow my road? As for the butter I think I have at least 6 or more pounds in the freezer, I guess I didn't bake quite as much as I had planned for the holidays, but I am sure I may use some of it if this snow doesnt melt soon, and there is always pancakes with lots of butter.I again thank you for sharing, have a great week....

That's funny! But did you know, you can freeze the real stuff (butter) and it keeps fine? I do that when there is a sale.
