Issue III: Bread Butts
Food of the gods
Hello fellow toads,
Happy Toad Tuesday! I’m keeping this issue short and sketchy because that’s just the vibe this week. What’s this newsletter all about if not going with the vibes? This week, we’re talkin’ about…

Y’all, I have a confession to make: I’m a sick little freak who loves eating bread butts. One of my favorite things to do for first breakfast is:
Slink into kitchen
Assess bread stash
Swipe butt pieces of all breads
Make a butt smorgasbord
Repeat as soon as more breads appear
A bread butt smorgasbord is great when you need a small pick-me-up or you have a lot of new spreads to try. The butts are generally small enough that you won’t get stuck eating tons of a nasty spread or a nasty bread; plus, if you find a combo you really like, you can always go in for more.
Some spreads I have tried recently are different jellies and jams, fancy butter, bone marrow, and rillette (a spreadable French pork preserve).
If you have a butt/spread combo that I need to try, please feel free to get in touch, dear reader.
And bonus: feel free to download this printable poster to let houseguests know that you’re also a sick little freak who loves eating bread butts!

Our Neighborhood Cat of Note this week is Stripes! He’s a long and leggy guy who seems to live on the same street as Pillowfight. I made his acquaintance last Sunday. Stripes hung around just long enough for a couple ear scratches and then peaced out. A guy who sets boundaries—I respect it. Rock on, Stripes!
This issue is dedicated to my Himalayan salt rock lamp. I like you and I lick you (only when nobody is looking), keep up the good work.
