A Thanksgiving Pig Out

We live in a busy world that it is often difficult to slow down and say a simple “thank you” as a sign of appreciate to others. Society today is too caught up with what the latest trends are that we neglect to remember the people in our lives who matter the most. Thinking about others is thought of as secondary and is not thought of as important. The word “selfless” has turned into “selfish” and “thankful” is now “thankless”. The words “thank you” are simple words but have great meaning behind them. As Thanksgiving is approaching, think about your loved ones who are important in your life. It is meant to be “a time to give, a time to love, and a time to reflect on the things that matter most in life,” writer and author, Danielle Duckery said. Forget about the things that you can find on Black Friday and spend time conversing while sharing a meal with your loved ones. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, and corn with butter is the typical American meal that is made on this joyous occasion. Butter in particular is the most used ingredient for baking and cooking, but can be a nuisance when you’re trying to peel away the wrapper. Developing an easier way of cutting butter without the use of a knife, Steve Weber, a software engineer and 3D printing enthusiast invented the Butter Pig. After entering into a contest and placing third in 2016, it has since remained a staple at his dinner table. While the “Butter Pig always makes a great gift, pass it around the Thanksgiving table. Each of your guests can grab a slice of pure, sweet butter without fussing with a complicated dish or losing track of the butter knife,” Weber said. The concept for the Butter Pig began “with a simple butter box and evolved over many iterations of trial and error before coming up with the final design.” Finding new creative ways of making different shapes with butter, Weber has developed “five additional designs: the wave, a bacon like shape, a star or flower, the noodle, and the corn cob spreader,” he said. Each one is unique and makes spreading butter much easier. Enjoy Thanksgiving with this fun design and give thanks with a grateful heart.
