kansas turns 149 today (and no, i did not stay up until midnight to post this…i usually do a bunch of posts and schedule them for later).
our kansas celebrations this week include making butter to eating zweiback brought by families. its such a simple process, i don’t know why i don’t do it more often.
we used fancy local cream that came in a glass bottle, poured it in another jar and shook, shook, shook.
suddenly you hear a thunk, thunk, thunk and you know the butter is flopping around in there!
we sang happy birthday by “candlelight” (thanks for the inspiration, tom!) and enjoyed our feast.
it’s been a cozy week.
