Of the many indulgences that I enjoy, by far my favorite is butter. Real butter adds such a nice touch to so many things it is hard to know where to begin.

Tonight I made Trout Amandine for dinner...and it was d-e-licious! What could be better than Rainbow Trout coated in almond flour, fried in butter then coated with a heavenly mixture of brown butter and toasted almonds? What could be better you ask? Crab legs soaked in clarified butter? You betcha! I could literally feel my arteries hardening, but I couldn't care. It was nothing short of amazing.

I was going to take step-by-step photographs of this amazing meal, but I was sort of hurried through it by my husband who was in charge of the crab legs. Maybe next time...

There wasn't even a starch or vegetable to accompany this meal. Man, my bowels are going to be awesome tomorrow!

Well, still trying to decide what to write about to keep it interesting. But believe me, I'm just warming up. Pretty soon y'all will be so inundated with many LEGENDARY stories you won't know what to do.


  1. Em, do you read Pioneer Woman? Her cooking section has a 4-butter-stick minimum.

  2. Maybe I should start reading it!
