Hell-mester over. And yes, I have a favourite butter.

Posted on Updated on

I have finally finished exams. Last night I read 500pages/750page textbook.

It feels a little like this.

And a lot like this.

But mostly, I just fell asleep where I’m sitting.

How does one celebrate such a fantastic ending? With not a bang, but an uncomfortably full stomach. Like, lamb burger with olives, tzatziki and chilli fries, followed by a dinner of crisp-skinned seared duck with an orange and green peppercorn sauce (courtesy of the ever patient ginger pagan- my boyfriend) followed by a gloriously excessive sweet gnocci with cinnamon, lindt chocolate, custard and caster sugar. (All accompanied by wine, baguette and brie)Image

But real proof that he’s golden? The comment, ‘I even got you your favourite butter [because I know how much you hate margarine]’. Yes, I have a favourite butter. Its Lurpac. I defy anyone not to want to eat that smothered on bread like cheese. Delicious danish excessive calories. Yum yum yum.

With love, from Charlotte

    Good butter is a beautiful thing. I have been wanting to pick up some Amish butter for making some croissants with.

    Congrats on finishing exams! Also, I too have experienced the joy of Lurpac. We were visiting David’s grandparents and we were about to go to the coast for a weekend. As we were leaving David’s grandmother pulled me aside and presented me with a tub of Lurpac. I appreciate that I’ve married into a family where tubs of quality butter are an accepted gift. Also, that food looks brilliant xoxo

    Ah, yes! Nothing better than proper butter on a slice of fresh homemade bread… Drooooooools!

    Hi Charlotte,

    Congratulations on your new found freedom. Apart from rather belated words of thanks for following my blog, I would like to join in your praise of Lurepak, although here in New Zealand I find our unsalted butter is pretty good. I get the feeling it’s usually much fresher than its salted brethren.

    Now I’m going to have to head to the kitchen for a good piece of bread and butter. As I go, I’m asking myself why I don’t own a bread maker, but glance at my reflection pretty much answers that one for me.


    PS. We seem to own matching tablecloths.

    Good butter makes ALL the difference. I buy a handmade Amish butter from a cheesemonger at the open market near my house. I also make my own from time to time … also totally worth it. It’s not great for cooking with, but as a spread for fresh baked bread?

      I’m so glad somebody agrees! Butter is so worth it 🙂 And Amish butter would be amazing, I’m a bit jelly! Thanks for checking out the blog 🙂
