The Price of Butter

I’ve noticed a HUGE rise in the price of Butter these last weeks. Interesting timing….right before holiday season….I did a little research and there was nothing conclusive. I read everything from the shortage of cream due to increased ice cream sales to exporting our butter to other countries! What is the price in YOUR area?

IMG_6508The butter above is from my local No Frills in Blair, NE. Land O Lakes is my preferred brand of butter.

What a Bargain! 156th & Maple Hy-Vee is ONE CENT Cheaper!IMG_6503

I’m not a fan of the Hy-Vee brand for baking. Hiland brand (local to the midwest) is the same price! IMG_6504

What the heck is going on?!

The Milk Bottles

I love to get our milk in glass bottles from Burbach’s Dairy. The milk is Colder and Fresher and Betterer.

BurbachBut we have to RETURN those bottles!
I’m not very good at it. Burbach’s recently called me out, too. They want their bottles back! So, I had to clean out the back of the MomVan to find them all!


All EIGHTEEN bottles fit in one grocery cart (I was surprised).


Checker at the Peony Park Hy-Vee didn’t bat an eye. She counted them up and gave us $36 in cash.IMG_6485_edited-1

Which we promptly spent on Lottery Tickets 🙂IMG_6484_edited-1

Turkey Sammich

We’re watching the Kansas City Royals tonight play in the World Series! I’m making a Turkey Breast and Homemade Rolls so we can have some yummy sandwiches for dinner!

I’m using a simple half Turkey Breast and roasting it in the oven with some aromatic vegetables…..a cut up Onion, Carrot and Celery (all old and fading in my crisper drawer). It is SO EASY to just roast up a small turkey breast for a great dinner and there’s enough for leftovers for lunch the next day! I am using 2 vintage Pyrex pans, one upside down on top of the other, (like a lid) to keep the Turkey Breast moist while cooking.

These Yummy Rolls are made in my bread machine on the dough cycle. It is a Parker House Roll recipe from the Food Network and one of my favorite chefs, Bobby Flay.

I’m going to spread some Pear and Cranberry Conserve on the sandwich….I hope it tastes good! I made this a few weeks ago and actually processed the conserve in my Pressure Canner.

Today is also New Skylights Day! The new ones are NOT the same as the old ones……so we’ll see how they are.
