Remember the handmade butter crock I wanted for my birthday that my dad got for me?
And then Mark broke it?
Well, it was really, really hard to glue it back together, and it looks just awful. It's not fooling anybody, and a guest at our house actually was like, "what the hell happened there?"
But butter crocks (which allow you to use a seal of water to keep butter fresh while at room temperature) are not very common, and not something you can just go out and buy. You generally have to search the Internet, and they aren't all that cheap either. The one above was, I think, close to $40.
So I'm looking around Savers thrift store for some bargains, and what do I find? A butter crock! How did you guess?
And it was $4.99. It's also a smaller size. I wanted a one-stick sized crock (the other one is a 2-stick) because I can't eat it that fast, and the lower it gets, the harder to keep it sealed.
For the record, I fully understand if I'm the only person who cares about this. I mean, what kind of boring blog is this?
