Being able to make your own butter in under 5 minutes may just change your life!
Last week I mentioned that I broke my one of my camera lenses. Come to find out, I broke the whole dang camera. The lens and the camera. Broke.
I pouted for two whole days.
I didn’t want to talk to anyone, I ate a lot of bad food and I just sulked.
What would have been a minor fix was now going to cost us a lot more money.
I talked to Ryon about it and he told me to get what I needed. He knew it was an important part of my business [both real estate and blogging!].
I was ecstatic! Having his support means the world to me.
So with the go ahead from Mr. Grant, I started looking at cameras. I took the kids to Sam’s Club to check out a few I had been eying online. I wanted to feel/hold/touch/smell any potential new cameras.
My favorite was the Nikon D7000. [Affiliate link] I wanted to put it in my cart and buy it that second.
But I couldn’t just spend $1600 on a whim. [Sam’s had a bundle that came with a few extra things.]
So I searched around and found on Craigslist. [Side note – craigslist creeps me out. Not sure why. It just does.]
For $700! Sayyy what!! I almost wet my pants. [No I didn’t. But maybe.]
I emailed the lady and no response. So I texted her the next day.
She said that someone was interested but she would keep me in mind. Back to pouting.
Until later that afternoon when she messaged me back and said they were going to pass! I almost peed again!
Ryon and I drove to meet her and check it out. Yall, I have never fallen in love with an electronic item.

Thanks so much Debi! I agree.. homemade butter is the best!
This reminds me of the time when I mother taught me how to make butter for a class project in 3rd grade. Thanks for the memories!
Thats awesome! How did you make it back then Ann?

BOO broken camera! I feel your pain! I dropped my camera with my 24-70 lens on it not too long ago. Luckily the lens had a lens cap protector/filter on it, but it’s dented as all get out. It still works, but I foresee it eventually going south. That is of course, the only lens that isn’t insured 🙁 My camera body (Canon 5D Mark II) is currently at the camera doctor – thank goodness for insurance!!!!
Love making homemade butter! I remember doing this exact process in 3rd grade during pioneer days!!! Love this so much it’s one of this Monday’s Mouthwatering Mondays featured recipes! xoxo
Thanks so much Rachel! I appreciate the feature!
Thanks, Kelley, for sharing such a fun recipe! I loved it so much that I featured it in my weekly roundup post over at apeachykeenblog.blogspot.com. Thanks again! 🙂
Woohoo! Thanks so much Lex! Very much appreciated!
I can’t believe how easy that looks – and I’m not a cook! Do you know what the shelf life is on the butter (in the fridge, of course)? Thanks for sharing!
I would say 2 weeks in the fridge. Ours has never lasted longer then that – we eat it quick! Hope that helps!
