Buttering items is fairly standard in restaurants.

I checked and we do have Marmite at our Florida Publix store for $5.99 for 125 grams.

You just took my appetite away with that one.

I had dinner at my college buddy's home once when we were students.  His mother was about to butter the noodles when there was beef gravy waiting for them.  I had to ask her not to.

I'll put a little butter or olive oil on any pasta after I cook it to keep it from sticking together.
But it makes the sauce slide off and not stick to the pasta!

Not sure if you've seen this yet, Hugh Jackman educates Jimmy Fallon on how to eat Vegemite (on hot toast, plenty of butter and then a scraping). He liked it!
It's not like Nutella, it's very salty but great if you're hungover or suck.

I grew up in Europe, with British Marmite, and moved to New Zealand a couple of years ago.
They sell Marmite here, but it's not the type I grew up with, it's too much like Vegemite, not horrible, just not right. Smell and taste and even texture are slightly off. But then I found out I can buy British Marmite here, I just have to look for the label "Our Mate". :)

I know.   >:(

I posted a long time ago about my annoyance at pre-buttered toast, bagels, or whatever in diners.  They put on far too much.  When I get a toasted bagel in Starbucks or Panera I always ask for half the amount they give with it.

Not that I've noticed!  I don't put a whole lot on the pasta, though.

Just saw Marmite in my regular supermarket.  a 125g (4.4 oz) jar is $6.59.

In other news, Murphy's Irish Tea is $7.49 for 80 bags and The Best Taste Chicken Spread is $1.89 for a can smaller than a Fancy Feast can.

What's murphy's Irish tea out of curiosity? We only drink lyon's or Barry's, I've never even heard of murphy's.

I suspect it's a standard brand.  I always check imported tea prices in stores against what I pay for it online, which is how I know I'm getting the best price for PG Tips when I order it from Amazon.

I can find Marmite, but I've never tried it.  I guess I'm afraid to try it.
