Here we are again … Gallery time … and the ever inventive Tara Cain at Sticky Fingers has tried her hardest to outfox us with her theme this week of ‘Shapes.’
As you can see, this is a mini butter mountain. WTF right? It may strike some of you as an odd choice of picture but you see, butter and I have a very close relationship. And not in a ‘Last Tango in Paris’ kinda way. Honest.
Moving swiftly on … one of my many isms is that I cannot abide margarine. I mean, I really cannot stand it. The smell of it is enough to make me physically sick and quite frankly, the sight of it as I walk past it in the Dairy aisle makes my skin crawl.
That’s not normal, right? (“No, Kate, it isn’t.”)
I think my severe aversion stems from childhood – as most weird things do. We only ever ate butter at home as Mum had come from a large family and all they ate was cheap margarine (if that.) She vowed that when she had her own family, we would have the luxury of having butter … so my taste buds got a bit spoilt. Plus I’m a fussy bugger.
Thankfully, my kids aren’t as fussy as their Mum – I employ the ‘get what you’re given’ method, which seems to work just fine!
These miniature square packets of M&S creamy indulgence are what I spread over my daily scone and give me that much needed burst of energy first thing in the morning.
Butter – I salute you!
