I really wish I would have taken a ‘before’ picture. Imagine this butter dish with butter all around the bottom edge. (We leave the butter out all the time so it’s nice and soft and toast-ready.) It’s not its fault – you cut off too much butter, so then you have to ‘wipe’ it back onto the dish and it gets on the lid when you replace it. After a while the whole thing gets a little gross, and a lot dangerous. Darn slippery glass lid….
Well, Amy over at Angry Chicken decided to use a cute little Weck jar to hold half a stick of butter, and that seemed so smart. I do not have a Weck jar, but I do have an irreverence for directionality.
Let’s give this a try. The ‘lid’ isn’t exactly tight-fitting, but until the cats realize that we keep the butter on top of the microwave, I think we’ll be fine.
(Please don’t tell them.)
