Is the butter lamb.
I live in an area with a large Italian population, as well as Polish, Irish, and German. My great-grandparents came here from Italy in the early 1900’s. There’s always good food around here.
The butter lamb is apparently an addition to the Easter meal for Polish Catholics, according to wikipedia 🙂 I guess I always knew it was a polish tradition, because of the name on the box.
Anyways, we had a family get-together at my aunt’s house, where Sweet Pea saw her first butter lamb.
“Doggie!” she said, pointing to the lamb molded out of butter, with peppercorns for eyes.
Minutes later she had a confused and slightly horrified look on her face as the lamb was passed around the table and cut up to butter bread.
Whoops. I never saw that one coming.
