  1. I haven’t tried it ... I haven’t checked my other local grocers, yet though - i will look for it next time I do (and I am not a Costco shopper) ... sounds interesting - anything that tastes like cream can’t be bad, right? 😁☺️😋
  2. Ha! Are you Korean, by chance? I thought only we did that 😂😂 (the horror of not having enough of any one food for anyone 😱 ) I would LOVE to gift my pimiento cheese - but 😕 ... I am staying away from stuff that requires refrigeration (it has some cream cheese in it) - so 😔 The people we are gifting to have had my Rice Krispy Treats before and they love them and I would love to gift them (I make them thick’ish and extra ‘gooey’ and they’re so soft for days after) but I feel like I’d have to make several pans of it and I worry I won’t be up to doing it (it was one of the first things on - then off my list LOL)
  3. @SLB I like Vermont Creamery! At least their products I’ve tried anyway 😀 (cultured butter and creme fraiche) - excellent products! Hey - no one can blame you for wanting to support your state - not a soul 😁 ... I have heard of Ronnybrook, but haven’t had the opportunity to try it ... I had never heard of higher fat butters confounding old baking recipes — wait - I guess to some degree, I have ... I have seen the odd recipe here and there call specifically for margarine and instructions specifically my to use butter ... same for using lard, etc. As far as older recipes that specify butter as an ingredient and higher butterfat - I just barrel on with my normal butter 😂 ... I do quite a lot of baking and have many handed down recipes from my paternal grandmother (my mom, God love her - fantastic cook, but couldn’t bake a thing) and from my wonderful mom-in-law ... and of course other baking recipes blah blah blah - I use all the same butter to no ill-effects that I’m aware of 🤞
  4. Before they started the “trunk or treat” thing here a few years ago - we had the dads (sometimes moms) come by with their kiddos in golf carts, on 4 wheelers or side by sides ... always cracked me up ... it’s a small neighborhood- so everyone shared their ... ummm ... provisions 😁
  5. I am, too ... In our family we always called a Soda, Soda never Pop or Dr Pepper or Coke and the list goes endlessly on (but, my mom emigrated here from S Korea - spoke six languages - some things were easier for her to translate to English blah blah blah) ... Mr Cat, however - opposite - and the first time I heard him pronounce “Popeye” (as in Popeye The Sailor Man) - I couldn’t quit laughing for 3 days 🤷🏻‍♀️ (he pronounces it “pie-pie” ... I don’t know - maybe you had to be there 😁)
  6. We didn’t have many kids - some came and took some M&Ms and Snickers bars, but unfortunately they didn’t take much (I wish they would’ve taken everything and left the bowl ... I did call my neighbor and try to persuade her to convince her son to come empty the bowl, but it was a no go 🤷🏻‍♀️ ... So now I have a a bunch of Reese’s - m&ms and Snickers barstool i have no idea what to do with ... I guess Mr Cat can take them to work (along with everyone else 😂). The night before Halloween - we mostly called it “The Night Before Halloween” - once in a while we referred to it as Mischief Night ... I’ve never heard it called Cabbage Night before - makes me think y’all run around with those little Cabbage Patch Dolls (just the first thing to pop into my mind - sorry 😐)
  7. @AlaMoi Well this is a darn sight easier than when we did it back in Sunday school - shaking the little gerber baby jars til our arms about fell off! Seriously, you make it sound just crazy simple and make it look ridiculously delicious! I will have to try this soon! Thanks so much for taking the time to explain your process 😃
  8. T@dans I am so sorry for you and your friends loss 🙁 I am glad you have someone to lean on. Your question made made me very curious so I fired up a quick google search - I don’t know if you do “apps” (like phone or iPad) but I ran across an app called Spoonacular food companion ... it seems if you put a recipe website into the app - it will do many things for you - among them - create a shopping list from the recipes / websites you input into the app (I’m not sure I’m making this clear) - but I believe it will do what you are seeking if I understand the app correctly. I have not used the app myself (though I may start 😀) - but it gets high ratings. I know it’s available in the iTunes Store, I’m not sure about Google Play or Amazon though I’m sure it’s easy enough to look. I hope this helps.
  9. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! IIRC from your other posts, that would be a great boon for you! 🤞🏻
  10. 😳 Were YOU the guy i saw driving down the road nibbling on a stick of Land O Lakes ?!?! 😲 ... I mean - c’mon - I love butter, too but - dude ... 😲
  11. Let us know how it turns out, @Owtahear! Make the world a butter place 😁
  12. Very true, @JoNorvelleWalker ! (I have to admit - it’s halloween and that made me look over my shoulder 👀 😲😱😂😂 ) I will have to cultivate the right friends 😁
  13. I dont have a thing against your boy, JB at all -I absolutely admire the way he has grown his business ... and as for my sources - well, FoxBusiness - WSJ - WaPo - you can google and the info is there for anyone to see / easily find and it goes back several years. It’s a product that loses Amazon money but draws more members - which apparently makes them money. I don’t criticize it - I’m just reporting it. I have seen several things, as you’ve mentioned - Amazon thought they’d market they thought they’d get into and decided later it wasn’t for them. Better to do that than live with an albatross around their neck. More power to ‘em. As for Whole Foods - eh - we’ll see - I hope it works out - a lot of people here seem to be happy with being able to have their food delivered from there. I don’t know about their delivery demographics - but I do know we are ‘outside the delivery area’ and we live about 40mins from WF.
  14. @ElsieD that is an excellent deal - glad you were able to stock up! @chromedome you and Elsie talking about this brand, I am going to see if I can find it and give it a go -
  15. That is beautiful looking Butter ... I guess Amish Butter beats out (any other Butter every day of the week and twice on Sundays 😁
  16. It’s very rich and cream and has a slight tang to it ... I dont bake with it, but i do put it on some baked goods - bread definitely, some snack cakes, use it for eggs, etc ... almost anywhere I’d use butter and the flavor is appreciated. I understand it is easy to make your own cultured butter (I haven’t) if that’s one way you want to with it.
  17. The kids do look cute, no doubt but not cute enough to outweigh my pup barking whenever someone barks at the door ... Ive had the candy bowl out for an hour and a half - it is cold here today - 43 deg (Dallas area) - not many takers ... a few, but not a whole lot.
  18. *memories* Peanut Butter molasses kisses ... my sister took those, too - I stole them back when she wasn’t looking - I loved those.
  19. Amazon has reported for years that Prime shipping is a loser for them, profit wise. They have also said it is such a boon to their business they (reportedly) will not give it up. It apparently was was such a loser for FedEx that FedEx opted not to renew their with them, also. FedEx was very “big whoo” about it - said something that amounted to (I’m paraphrasing) - Amazon was less than 1% of their business so no big deal. (I was very surprised) ... I guess it’s a bigger deal for UPS than “big whoo” because I haven’t heard otherwise ... yet.
  20. Of course unsalted! 😁 Well, there is one exception (isn’t there always? 😂) ... Colliers with sea salt - the only salted butter I buy ... I think it’s wonderful with meats! I am not a Kerrygold fan - to me it has a strong and distinct earthy flavor and I can’t get behind that ... I’ve tried it several times but - I can’t get past it. Cat Son feels the same way ... however, I can use it for MrCat’s eggs, venison steaks etc and he loves it 🤷🏻‍♀️
  21. I think I need to find some local butter people ...
  22. It is for me! Mr Cat can tell a difference in his food, but not in baked goods, but I have used Plugra for so long - that may be why ... Cat Son has a pretty discernible butter palate - he has definite likes and dislikes of particular brands and won’t use some at all ... When I was able to eat butter - I would be very poker face (put it on a slice of bread and go about my business) when getting Cat Son to try a new one because I didn’t want my tastes to influence his ... we have very similar tastes ... i do do find some butters pair better with meats, etc - that’s why i keep them.
