Butter Queen

I can see into the future!  
I know what Molly is going to do when she grows up!


I went upstairs to change Heidi's diaper and when I came down I found Molly at work on a butter sculpture. It was pretty impressive for anyone, let alone someone three years and one day old.  

LOOK how much butter this kid was able to pile on a piece of toast.  I see the Minnesota State Fair in her future!  

I loved, loved going to the fair with my family.  One of my favorite things about the fair was going to the dairy barn and seeing the butter sculptures.  Each year Princess Kay of the Milky Way and the other dairy princesses have their likenesses carved out of a 90 pound block of butter.  If you're lucky enough to have made it past all the foods on sticks and into the dairy barn in time you get to watch the sculptor at work and even taste the butter chips!  

According to Wikipedia, yes, I did look it up, and yes, there was quite a large entry on this stuff, the same woman has been carving butter queens for the last 34 years.  When she retires I know who can take her place!  Miss Butter Queen USA, Molly!


Michelangelo eat your heart out! 
(and be sure to spread a little sweet creamy butter on it)

Oh MY Gosh! That's a ton of butter!! Did she eat it? Kudos for the creation. My boys would have just as much butter on the floor trying to do what Molly did! My boys will make sculptures with their mashed potatoes quite often.

She would have eaten the whole thing if I hadn't come back downstairs! She was surprisingly clean about the whole process. She just used a knife to put the butter on the toast and somehow did not get it on the table at all. It was pretty amazing. Luckily I buy butter at Costco.

Molly is such a doll! What a hilarious girl......I love her little adventurous spirit. I see a budding butter artist in the works!

So will Molly really make me the same thing when I come visit? I'm so excited! I'm not going to eat for a week just so I can enjoy it even more!
