    Are you using real butter or margarine? Butter has the tbsp with lines you cut on the butter stick. If you cut half of that or less then I'd log it as 1/2 tbsp.

    Kerrigold, the good stuff. I did mention this before by the way.

    Except when they wrap the paper around the sticks they can be off by as much as 1/2 Tbl. on the 2 ends.

    I'm 62 and haven't tried one, either. In my case it's probably because <trigger warning> I mostly don't think bread is worth the calories. Meh. ;)[/quote]

    You take that back, you take that back right now! How would I make a bacon sandwich?[/quote]

    It gets worse: I'm vegetarian, besides. No bacon since 1974 (at least not on purpose).

    Howzabout we say this: You can have my share of the bread (mostly) and the bacon (entirely)?

    But it's not even a measurable amount. Like maybe less than half a teaspoon.

    I have a digital scale that measures micrograms and another that measures grams and pounds.
    Amazon is your friend, for $20 or less.

    I keep the gram/lb scale on my kitchen counter and the microgram scale in the artist studio for weighing pigments.

    I put a small amount of Kerrygold butter (the best by the way) on my 1 piece of toast in the morning. How should I measure it?

    When you can no longer see bread, that's 1 serving.

    I think that's for peanut butter... :bigsmile:

    Right??? Because the butter melts. You'd keep adding and adding until your bread was soggy, and you'd still see it.

    Do you use butter with your peanut butter?

    My mom does. Yum!

    No. People do that?!? :o

    Well I do when I make a grilled peanut butter & jelly, just not on the same side of the bread. :)

    My grandmother made all of her sandwiches with “cow butter” directly on the bread and then the other toppings after that. PB&J would be bread, cow butter, peanut butter, jelly, cow butter, bread. A regular sandwich would be bread, cow butter, mayo, meat, cheese, cow butter, bread.

    Kept them from getting soggy in your lunchbox!

    Yup, that's old school! It's remembering this kind of stuff from my childhood that makes me crack up when 20-somethings (or close enough) say that the obesity crisis happened because people eat so much more now than people used to.

    Heh.

    I weigh out sliced bits of butter at the beginning of the week if I have it regularly so I know exactly what I’m using and not having to weigh every time I use it 👍😊

    I will take anything free I can get. You can send me some veggies too if you like, especially kale, I really like kale. <3

    I just put the butter on the scale, tare it, cut some off and log the negative amount. I do this with items such as peanut butter and other spreads as well, it’s the most accurate

    I use a digital food scale. I put the butter tub on it, zero it out, butter my toast and see what I used. Simple.
