An Ode to My 5 Gallon Bucket of Coconut Oil

Dear 5 gallon bucket of coconut oil,
We used your last remaining bits of oil the other day and I became all mommy-emotional.

We’ve been through a lot together, you and me. Single to dating to fiancĂ© to marriage and new apartment. I traded a gallon of your delicious oil to get the best meats I’ve ever tasted when we were so poor I could barely afford any food. You were gold.

Then my baby was born and I filled up a little jar with your high quality oil to keep my son’s cloth-diapered butt happy and clean.

I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil to feed my family healthy muffins for breakfasts. It just tastes so much better.

We have big financial goals now, so I can’t spare another $250 to buy a new 5 gallon bucket of coconut oil, so I will have to branch out and try a different retailer. I’m glad more retailers are selling by the gallon now.

Thank you for nourishing my family through many life transitions. It has been a joy to know I was providing my family with the best of the best.
