Overheard in the Kitchen...

Something had been smelling in the refrigerator a few days ago. I carried out a purge. Fast forward to today...
Me: "I'll need to get more Irish butter, too, because I threw the other out..."

RX: *semi-accusing stare*

Me: "I'm not saying it was causing the smell, but it was suspicious. I don't know I could have convicted it, but I sure as heck had enough to indict it."

Butter has a tendency to pick up flavors in the fridge. If something wasn't smelling so good in there, even if it wasn't the Irish Butter itself, maybe it's not such a bad thing that it gets replaced.

just sayin...

LOL
My mother taught the fridge cleaning mantra, 'If in doubt, throw it out.' Of course, my dad referred to Tupperware as the place food went to rot in peace, so that was probably for the best.

Being full of unsaturated fat, butter picks up other nasty flavors and smells easily. So, guilty by association.

Wolfman said...

Sure, so easy to blame it on the Irish!

Buzz said...

Expecting Brigid to show up and technoslap you silly: for throwing out butter AND blaming the Irish!

So, this is butter that has whiskey in it topped with whipped cream?

Captain Wheelgun said...

So what happens if you put Irish butter on an English muffin? Is it anything like pasta and antipasto? :-)

Tirno said...

Sure, you could indict the butter... but could you indict the ham sandwich?

Round up the usual suspects!

",,,butter picks up other nasty flavors and smells easily. So, guilty by association."

Ah, the felony butter statute.

Damn... someone stole my joke :)

Sebastian said...

And this is not meant to be a joke:

What the hell is Irish Butter? What happens when you stick Bailey's in a churn?

Old NFO said...

Good one, and yes, round up the usual suspects!!!

Kerrigold? Good stuff. Their cheddar is not bad either.

I bought Icelandic butter for a short while -- doing my miniscule (uh, femtoscule?) part to resurrect the Viking economy -- but it's back to the Kerrigold.

Tirno beat me to it-- it's the animal fat in the ham sandwiches that make 'em so easy to get a true-bill on, then?

You will know you were correct if, after indictment and charging, the Irish butter makes bail but fails to show for the trial.

Runny butter is safe to assume guilty.

Irish butter is the best butter! It's all the four leaf clovers that the unicorns eat...

Ed said...

The Vikings invaded Ireland and left their DNA often enough that the Irish butter probably qualifies as Viking butter by proxy.

Butter freezes well enough that you could store it in smaller portions in the freezer and only take out what you needed as you needed it.

You couldn't have just gone after the ham sandwich?
