Can’t ‘member the last time I ate a piece of buttered white bread. Prob’ly when I was aboard ship and nothin else was available for a meal that called for bread ‘n’ butter with it, like po’k & beans or eggs ‘n’ bacon.
Onliest bread I’ll eat today is peasant bread types, heavy and dark with odd aromas and unidentifiable seeds ‘n’ hulls ‘n’ stuff in it.
No, I lie — lemme modify that: I do like various types of focaccia, especially with tomato slices, olives, and fried garlic on it while it’s in the oven, and I make my garlic toast with white bread, usually a type of saloio the local Navy Commissary bakes.
For butter bread, tho, I gotta go with a Portuguese crusty roll, or maybe a pan de sal made with the whole grain flour . . . or cornbread, of course, for hamhocks ‘n’ beans.
Take regular 110v AC cord, strip back the wiring about 3″ and wrap that real good around a 16d nail. Same for the other side Now take electricians tape and wrup it real good so you don’t have to hold it anywhere near the nail, in case you forgot. Now stick the nails into the ends of the frozen cube — making sure they’re kept well apart from each other. Put it on a plate and NOW plug it in.
You can also do this with a dill pickle. In the dark. It’s fascinating.
