There is something…

rotten in the state of Denmark. A strange thing seems to have happened in my house the last couple of weeks. A few minutes ago I opened the fridge to get the yeast for making bread.

And good heavens, I discovered three pounds of butter.


Clearly I had had great plans for cookie baking this Christmas, but I seemed to have lost my way.

Then, upon opening the cupboard to retrieve the salt, I spied a large bag of pecan pieces. They had been destined to combine with some of that butter to form melt-in-your-mouth pecan fingers.

Alas and alack, I fear I cannot in good conscience make all these delectable treats now. Not after the last month of overindulgence. But how can I possibly let another entire year go by before eating such delicacies?

In all fairness to me, the past few months have been strange and unsettling. Sending eldest son off to college has done more than leave the kids bathroom slightly cleaner.

I suspect the leave-taking this weekend will be gentler than the first.

I am, however, still left with three pounds of butter.

    Have you considered making the delicacies, keeping a few for yourself to enjoy and sending the rest off with College Boy for him to share with his dorm-mates? Other than that, I suggest freezing the butter (divide it up in portion sizes if you want).

    I’ll be thinking of you this weekend as you send him off :)

    College Boy doesn’t like sweets. I would suspect a mix-up in the nursery, but he looks too much like me.
    Good idea to freeze the butter. Perhaps then I won’t be so tempted to use it up.
