All in Butter …

Hello dear people of the blogosphere, looks like I am back for a little while.

Love Is In Da Blog” gave me a daily blogging routine back so I might as well write some more.

It’s Saturday and, of course, this means Linda’s brilliant “Stream of Consciousness Saturday” which gave us “butter” as today’s challenge.

“Alles in Butter” or translated “All in Butter” means “All is fine” or “All is ok” and is a German saying. It is funny how something that used to sound totally normal to you suddenly sound strange when you live in a country that doesn’t speak your language. “Alles in Butter” is one of those for me.

Apparently, in the middle ages they used butter to safely transport glassware and porcelain. You packed your glasses or cups in a barrel and then filled it up with liquid butter. When the butter got hard it protected your stuff.

Seems quite a waste of delicious sandwich and toast topping if you ask me… or do you think they ate the butter afterwards????

Please head over to Linda and find curious, delicious, funny and wise posts about butter in the comments as well as the suggestions on how to take part.

Happy Saturday all despite everything. Please stay safe, stay kind and remember you rock and all is in Butter 🀣

    1. I learned something too. Had to look it up. Apparently, they did that for a long time. And I agree, I suspect they ate the butter afterwards. Linda mentioned the mess to get the butter off again…. πŸ€£πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ
