I also believe that 1/3 cup of butter is 5 1/3 tablespoons. Posted By: deelip

lb is the shortened version of pound. Its used frequently in the US, although I was confused about it too until I put 2 and 2 together... There was an ad in the paper for 10 lbs of potatoes for \$1.99 (this was a few years ago, I think) and the bag said 10 pounds. Posted By: pinklife

Thanks for this conversion Mama Mangia. Now I know what to do when I encounter the term "stick". Shame with me but I don't really know this kind of measurement.
