Butter shortage? It's been all over the news as of late, a story with such sordid elements as smuggling and black market butter sales. This close to Christmas, plenty of folks are getting anxious.
We're lucky enough to have contacts in the secret butter underworld. A couple of days ago we made a trip to see our "dealer". One of our friends was at the grocery store at just the right time a few weeks ago and bought up several blocks of butter and offered to share with us. She gave us half her stock, and now we will be well-buttered into the new year.
