Who is right, me or DH? Crucial butter question!
JaneS · 23/04/2011 11:29
I am about to make hot cross buns and DH is going out to get some ingredients. We need butter, but are currently (no, I'm not going there ...) arguing terminology.
I say it's a 'pat of butter'; DH says the correct term for a block of butter is a 'brick'. WTF?
Please reassure me that butter comes in pats, not 'bricks'?!
Hope you're feeling the importance of this one, btw ...

Well, we're not American, so no sticks here! (Though it does sound convenient).
I guess I would call the little individual ones pats too.
I am glad it is definitely not a brick, though!
Loving the fact aabout Poland ... what do they do with it? Do they eat it all?

Sorry about that. I'm bitter about the fact I'm working (erm ... and MNing) all through Easter, handing in a chapter on Easter Monday and then working again on the royal wedding day. If there are bank holidays they're dead to me, so I shall be a killjoy.
I could quite (quayte?) enjoy saying your name like that though - I'm getting a Kate Middleton with shotgun vibe, which does take decades off the mental image.
