Some roll with that butter?


The other night, I made these rolls for dinner and Christian was slathering the butter on (much like the above picture). He looks up after about 3 rolls and said to me, "I don't care if die five years sooner, I just want to eat as much butter as I want." Somewhat amused at this, I said, "It's not about dying from clogged arteries, it's about getting fat." (Meaning that I didn't really care about clogged arteries either, I just didn't want to be a blubber bum and he took this to mean that it actually doesn't affect your arteries, it just makes you gain weight.) Well, the next day, every roll he ate had about 3 times as much butter as the night before. With a very satisfied grin on his face he said, "Now that you told me butter just makes you fat, I feel much better about eating a TON of butter with everything because I don't care about that." Ummmmm....okay. Eat away, Honey! (I don't want to break his heart by informing him that butter does in fact clog your arteries AS WELL as make you fat.)

I am with Kook on this one. I say if you are going to eat a yummy homeade roll you need to slather it with butter, and maybe some honey or jam.

The story is true. But the picture posted gives the impression that I eat fruitcake, and that I eat fruitcake with butter, neither of which is true.
