BatmansWife Posted November 20, 2011 Share Posted November 20, 2011 (edited) When I was a kid, my mom kept butter in a covered butter dish and kept it out all day (possibly all night too, I'm not sure). I usually keep butter sticks in the butter compartment in the refrigerator. When we want to use butter we put one in the microwave and hit the soften button (if the stick is less than a full stick you need to remember to not microwave it on soften for the full amount of time....or you'll have a pool of butter in the microwave). The other day the butter was out. I was about to put it away but remembered I'd want it in a couple more hours for lunch. So, I just kept it out. I just wonder if there's any reason to *not* leave it out. It was sure convenient to not have to microwave it. I'm wondering now if I want to do as my mom did...and just leave it out. But, then again....she would thaw frozen meat all day in the sink. So, her ideas aren't always the recommended way of doing things.
