Lemon butter sauce recipe - SunCakeMomHabits are pretty controversial tools in the toolbox of our brain. It’s a bit like a Swiss army knife that can be used in almost every situation but it’s not perfect for either one.

Yet, due to its handiness, we keep using it, even though we know that there is a better tool somewhere not so far away too. We put up with the not so perfect tool, provided not so perfect solution, purely just to save energy and don’t walk the extra mile to fetch the toolbox.

Our brain does similar things, creating habits from results that yield good enough results for its survival. (Actually, it does create the knife pulling habit too, but let’s not get tangled up with such nuances when trying to make a point.)

Anything that helps us survive, like glancing left (right for some queer places) before crossing the road or eating high carbs food, gets recorded as a habit that can be used over and over again, without taking the extra mile to think about it.

If some actions provide instant gratifications, they get recorded instantly, like it’s the case with having a cake during breaks. Try it once, and it will be impossible not to long for a slice of treat or something to munch on ever after.

Others got recorded over time, like it’s the case with checking for cars on the left before stepping on the road. The most memorable ones though, the ones that burn in when something unexpected happens, like a car comes from the right too . Stress is a great ink to write things into our memory that we remember forever.

Fun life hack: Take a cold shower after studying something. The stress, induced by the cold water, helps us remember of the studied material better and longer.

Sure, it’s easy to pick up new ways of doing things when we try to cross the road in the cold British rain with a car coming at us from the wrong side of the road madly sounding its car horn, but the others aren’t less memorable either only less noticeable.

In fact, most of the habits we pick up are so subtle that we don’t even know they exist until we pay attention to them. The amount of toothpaste we squeeze (way too much), the road we take to commute (way too hard to steer away from it) or add sugar to yeast.

Adding sugar to yeast which actually on a molecular level dehydrates the yeast and slows down its growth to the level of suffocating it.

Not to mention, adding baking powder senselessly to any dough that can’t even contain air pockets, unlike the gluten structured white flour in the name of fluffiness.

“It’s easier to fool people than convince them that they have been fooled.”

– Mark Twain

So, we can pick up habits fairly easily. Which makes us vulnerable to bad habits as a whole, unless we consciously try to avoid anything that could cause us trouble on the long run. Changing habits sure is possible but requires substantial amount of energy and time hence we are better off by creating good habits and avoid anything that could cause us trouble on the long run.

For example, everyone knows that if we add sugar to a meal, we will enjoy it more, due to the dopamine releasing properties of sugar. Yet, once we realize that sugar is bad for us because it causes cancer, diabetes and obesity, we simply dismiss such claims or come up with all sorts of reasons why not to buy it anymore.

Luckily, fat isn’t as addictive as sugar, although it’s no coincidence that we like basting the stakes in butter or cheese makes thing takes better but that’s another story.

Lemon butter is exactly what it sounds like, Butter with lemon. Some, who are more adventurous, add additional spices and herbs, like garlic and parsley, that go hand in hand, or salt and black pepper essentially rendering lemon butter into a complex compound butter.

In its purest form Lemon butter is used on anything that requires only lemon and butter which most of the time is fish and sometimes chicken. We could, of course, just use the butter as it is to fry our meat with occasional vegetables and then squeeze a bit of lemon juice on top but then we wouldn’t have a sauce occupying space in the fridge and always ready to be pulled out when needed.

Sure lemon butter is slightly different than pure butter because it has been clarified which process removes the impurities and leaves back only the fat with a characteristic nutty flavor which we all so love in butter popcorn too.

Now lemon juice is added too, further elevating the flavor portfolio to a completely different level where we can instantly see the endless possibilities this simple compound butter can provide.

Drizzled on salad, fish, chicken or soon anything that before considered incompatible with such trivia, could come under our scrutinizing creativity, exploring possibilities to the infinite and beyond.Lemon butter sauce recipe - SunCakeMom
