Compound butter.

Congrats! It's fun, no? You can use a stand mixer too. No sore arms.

i dont have a stand mixer, so i started with my magic bullet, but it only did so much, so i shook it up the rest way. i'm sure if i was in shape it would be so bad. and i can use the excercise.

have i mentioned how yummy real buttermilk is crazy good!!!! screw that nasty store bought stuff!
That's so cool!

It's not particularly glamorous or exciting, but sea salt butter is literally the greatest thing I've ever tasted!

Mr. Spring did this once and it was so much fun to watch. He was so proud of that butter, just like you are.

I need to ask him to do that again because it was tasty AND entertaining.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
That's so cool!

I'm chuckling at your continued obsession with butter.
You should make cultured butter next time. Sweet cream butter is good, but I love my cultured butter. European butters are usually cultured.

Can you put it in the food processor? I think you said you didn't have beaters?

Just as is though, looks yummy!!!!

So impressed
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
