Musings: Butter, margarine, spread

My family uses butter for everything. (Land O' Lakes is a favorite since it's from Minnesota and excellent.) Butter doesn't just taste better or best; it's the only thing that has any flavor. (I will sometimes use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, but that's it.)

Put a pat of margarine in the pan to sauté something; it will evaporate like water. Nothing left.

And what do you say about a product called "spread"? I thought most things were named for what they are or what they are made of, not for what you can do with them (as if you're avoiding the issue of what is really in the stuff). Yuck!
