You can make everyone’s favorite dish at home. It’s easy to prepare and looks fancy.

It’s Friday. It’s Friday night. I am wearing sweats and watching How To Get Away With Murder. With butter at my side, naturally.

Postmates will be arriving soon, but I should have made this instead.

It’s not nearly as difficult as it seems. The opposite is true.

Look at the butter pool and the crusty bread. If that isn’t a seller, then I don’t know what else it could be.
