1 tub whipped butter
finely chopped thyme--remove stems, if possible
Let butter soften, add thyme, and blend. Spoon butter into a mold or small bowl. You can even use individual butter bowls (such as egg cups). Refrigerate until ready to serve. This is fragrant and fresh, perfect for warm bread, tea sandwiches, or grilled shrimp.
For a quick change, I removed the daffodil bowls, changed the napkins, and put down Italian pottery (yes, Dr. Gollum, I do, too, need more dishes. And they needed me. Plus, they were majorly marked down at the antique mall).
