Sometimes people who butter toast take too much butter. They then rid their knives of this excess animal fat by wiping the knife on the rim of the butter tub, infesting the pure butter with reject butter, blemished with crumbs and bits of jam.

I hate it when people do this and I DID IT TODAY. It’s been bothering me all morning. I feel like I should go and use my old, dirty butter but whenever I open the tub I see the beautiful, pure, off-white butter and can’t bring myself to use the reject butter.


I am back in Saskatchewan for the holidays and I think that this post captures the essence of life on the prairies.

It is truly beautiful.
