Regarding the original thread subject, I would like to say that last week I went a'cookin', only to realize that the butter purchased for me was unsalted. I stood in the kitchen feeling as though I ought to have a minor breakdown, but couldn't seem to generate any reasons. Meg, I thought, Meg, it's just butter. Meg, you're just greasing a pan. Meg, you're just making an omelet. Meg, chill.

I understand now that depression at the idea of unsalted butter has now been laid deep with that impossible-to-kill hook, and that, indeed, is my punishment.

The omelets were awesome, although messy.

It's my understanding that any recipe that calls for butter is asking for unsalted butter, unless otherwise noted. That way, you can add salt to taste. It just makes for really bad buttering on toasted goods, that's all.

you're going to have to beg to disagree, because really, you're not disagreeing with me at all.

without the aid of added salt, it's not so good.
