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.
