when I said this was going on lj, i wasn't kidding.
Last night, while we were sitting around before playing cards, sisterperpetua
, and lizzimonster
were sitting around talking about how they like to eat sticks of butter. I kid you not.
When someone says, "When you think about it in cups it's not so bad...a stick is only a half a cup." you have to ask...A HALF A CUP OF BUTTER!?
You guys are crazy. ; )

They are much tastier when you sprinkle a little sugar on them.

Yes yes. And a little cinnamon.
Actually I've never had a whole stick, but I have come close.
Maybe it's a Reedie thing. I'm surprised at the sheer number of people you listed. Maybe this is an undetected societal trend.
I've been told (of course we all know the value of uncredited hearsay, but nevertheless:) that Russians eat chunks of beef lard as snacks.

olive oil is most excellent for consuming on its own. but at least it has a good peppery flavor to it, and what you might even call a "bouquet." a stick of butter is just... a stick of butter.

steve, what are you talking about?!!!
on its own? not with bread or something?
I don't eat butter on its own, I just sometimes eat butter with other things (like a bite of bread, then butter).

oh, ok. with bread is good too. on its own it pretty good too. i think it's also supposed to be a digestif of some kind in mediterranean countries.

out of a cup, probably. "sipping oil" is the phrase i've heard.

I actually do not go to Reed, I am just friends with holyloki
As far as the lard is concerned, I know for a fact that Russian expedition teams used cans of whale blubber as a high calorie energy food.
