I don’t care what you buy, as long as you include real butter and real maple syrup.” Steve 1988.

My husband is a very¬†easy man to cook for so when he asked for those two things I happily complied…

Until 2008.

I hated to do it but when times got tough I had to quit buying butter and syrup. I truly think that was harder to live through than my experiments in cooking beans and baking bread were.

Thankfully my husband is a trooper and knew I eliminated those items from the grocery budget as a last resort. The kids did not mind as much but it was still an adjustment.

Today I am happy to say I am back buying real butter and 100% pure maple syrup.
