Sounds pretty good.

What is a cube of butter?

It sounds good and easy to make too.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington. Letter to Alexander Hamilton, Friday, May 02, 1783

I'd say a 'cube' is around a teaspoon or so.

been trying to guess.

best guess I have is to cut of a piece from a stick of butter so it is as long as tall and wide.  Would form a cube.   but who knows

If you buy your butter in a one pound block, a cube would be about a  half a pound by the same logic.

My friends, like bacon, you can never have too much butter.   ;D


What is that noise?
Ah yes, a gentle clogging of the arteries as we speak.

(butter is probably better for you than margarine)
