Extra! Dish in mourning as tragedy strikes.

Trader Joes has stopped carrying Plugra European style butter. Curse them and their fickle ways! I’ve yet to get over the loss of Marcel et Henri pate de campagne, and now this blow?

Being lower in moisture and higher in butterfat than conventional butters…thus taste-transporting me to Europe with a single bite…is all well and good. Being barely more expensive than commonplace, skinny-bricked butter is an added bonus. But fitting perfectly into my new butter dish, hand-carried from France? Priceless.

Bought Kerrygold Irish butter instead (extra wide as well) but at twice the price and half the height, I’m heartbroken.

    They also discontinued their halibut fish sticks – they were my favorite! It’s so frustrating! Especially since they didn’t discontinue their tartar sauce…what am I supposed to do with that now?

    Maybe we should try it as a bread-spread, Jill. It could be like Reese’s…”Who got their tartar sauce on my bread?” “Who got their bread in my tartar sauce?”
