Got butter?

Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope you plan on having a wonderful weekend this weekend. It seems that after a long weekend I need another weekend just so much more. My boys are being boys and just driving me crazy. I love them to death but some days it feels like they are trying to accomplish that task :)

Today I have some more non-craft stuff to show you. I don't know if you remember me saying that I went over to my friends house earlier this week to learn how to make jam...but she also showed me how to make butter. How cool is that? Of course I had to run to the store the next time for some essential items and had to get the whipping cream to try some butter on my own.

Last night I finally used that whipping cream to make my own butter. It is so rewarding knowing that your the one that made this food for your family. My husband informed me that it is the same feeling after you have been hunting and you have the meat you got from the animal on your table feeding your family :)

I am planning on making some bread today. I have made bread myself before so that isn't a big deal to me but I figured since I am in the mindset and we just ate the last of the two loaves of bread we bought last week that I might as well make it instead of running to the store again.

Oh, and to let you know I don't store my butter like in the picture hehehe :D I just wanted to "stage" it for a nice picture.

Have a great weekend!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
