There are Hoof Prints in the Butter

The cows seem to have an affinity for dairy products. At times like these, I really wish that I spoke Moo. Not only are they crowding the butter (yes, I only use real butter - that explains the large caboose, thank you), they seem to be fighting over it.

What do you suppose cows do with butter? I can't imagine they'd be eating it. Maybe it's some form of currency for them. Or maybe, because it's changed from it's original form, it's some sort of illicit drug. Whatever it is, the tension in my kitchen right now is palpable.

The kicker is that it's MY butter, and I'm not giving it up without a fight. I love my butter. And I'm about to march into the kitchen and pick up those two silly cows and put them in the cupboard. Separate cupboards. Bessie, Fred, don't do butter!

Until I write again ...

No wonder they are so chubby....eating up all your butter will do that!!

We LOVE the cow posts by the way!!!

Quite frankly, I think eating cheese made from my milk would be disgusting. Which means that those cows are grossly nasty.

You have some seriously messed up cows....

You are *killing* me with these cows. My kids are now cow fans and want to hear the latest installments.

I actually knew someone who ran out of milk in the fridge. She was making mac & cheese & used breast milk instead of dairy milk. Her husband said it was the best mac & cheese he ever ate.

Okay Jen, you've managed to seriously gross me out. Ew!!!! And Karen. I mean, I was thinking that because baby cows drink milk ... EW!!!!

So maybe they're offended and are protecting the butter?

I love your cow pictures! Too cute!

I think it's a territorial issue. You might check to see if they've peed on the butter. That's what my dog does when he's claiming his territory.

I'd be scared. Very scared.

Oh gross! I just put butter in the zucchini! Excuse me while I go throw up ...

I'm most disturbed by the fact that the cows appear to be rubbing their, er, backsides all over your butter.

The alternative is margarine which is only one molecule away from being plastic. Which would you rather have?

Give my love to the cows.

I'm with you ... REAL butter! YUMMO! But the cows - gotta behave!
