I Can’t Believe It IS Butter!

I had to laugh when I saw this “butter is back” post on Jezebel. This was the subject of a conversation I had with Tom the other night. It went something like this…

“Honey, I’ve been thinking. I know this is going to seem like it’s from way out in left field, but I think we should stop using Country Crock and switch to using real butter instead. I mean, I’ve been trying to make all of these changes in my diet in order to feel better, and so many people are talking about how we should be eating more real food, so I think this would be a good idea for all of us. But I want to buy it in a tub so it’s easier to spread, except for baking, where we can still use butter in sticks.”

Tom looked at me and blinked a few times before he responded.

yes that is a whole stick of butter

“I’ve got something to tell you. I’ve been using butter instead of Country Crock for a few months. I’ve only given you the Country Crock when you ask for it to put on your mashed potatoes and rolls and stuff. But when I cook, I’ve been using butter.”

I burst out laughing.

“So THAT’S why everything has tasted so much better!”

Tom has been secretly feeding me real butter for months. We still have Country Crock in the refrigerator to finish up, but once it’s gone, we’ll be a real butter household for good!
