Oh, it's just butter. Calm down

When we lived in Germany, my mom would buy butter from...Finland, I think. It was delicious butter. I can buy Finnish butter here in Des Moines, so maybe the butter my mom bought was from some other country and I think Finland because I see it at Super Target. Kerrygold butter is extremely difficult to find in Des Moines. I was at Costco today and completely by chance I saw it:

I was so happy. I think I said something out loud, but I don't remember what it was. I clutched the stupid box to myself as I trotted back to the cart. I made myself buy only one because Alton Brown says butter shouldn't be frozen idefinitely. I will simply hope Costco continues to carry it.

This morning before I left work, this happened and since Lily is the most incredible, smart and amazing cat I have ever had, I had no choice but to snap this shot and subject all of you to it. C'mon, now...Ah, itsn't that cute?

Just humor me.

Yes Lily is cute. And I love that butter makes you skip through the aisles of Costco! :) Too cute.
Thanks for the cake! You are too sweet!!

I love Kerrygold butter, too. We can get it here, regularly, though, what is rarer is their cheese! I try to stock up around St. Patrick's day, since that's the only time there's anything around but Swiss.

Around here I can get Kerrygold cheese, but it is a couple different kinds of cheddar. Not much selection. Although come to think of it, I haven't looked since St. Patrick's Day.
