In praise of butter
Can someone please tell me what is the deal with butter? I went to the store the other day and it was like $7 for a pound of organic butter.
"That's really expensive." I said, as I put it in my cart. But it's possible I was just mindlessly observing the tongue-clicking shoppers' tradition: Everything is always so frightfully expensive, and it wasn't this way before!
The truth is if that butter were $22 a pound I might pick up my grumbling a bit more, but I'd probably find a way to buy it nevertheless. It's that good. What's the old joke about French Cooking they like to make in the movies?
"What are the three secrets of French cooking?"
"Butter, butter, and butter."
Ha ha ha ha ha.
One could probably cook grass clippings in butter and they'd come out tasty, or at least good enough to lick the butter off of them.
I mean, if one can afford grass clippings. Unbelievable what they ask for grass clippings these days!
