So apparently there is some ‘milk cliff’ thing going on with the government and perhaps the price of milk will double – or something like that. I barely know what is going on, but it just so happens that I started a milk experiment at the beginning of December that has been quite successful: I don’t buy milk anymore.
Crazy, huh? I was tired of the milk-buying cycle. I usually don’t quite finish a gallon a week, but on Sunday it was either buy a whole gallon and have way too much, or half a gallon and run out on Friday. I really only use milk for cereal and coffee, and I still had all that Bob’s Red Mill five-grain cereal to use up. What if I just gave up eating cold cereal, and bought some dry milk to stir into the hot cereal? (I only use a tiny bit.)
Well, it’s been very successful. I like the hot cereal, I’m actually eating less for breakfast than when I mindless shovel Life cereal into my face, and I’m not running out of milk.
…. except for the coffee issue. I have just been putting a spoonful of Nido dry milk (found in the Mexican food aisle) in my coffee, which is great. The Nido is dry whole milk, not that nasty dry skim that Carnation is trying to pawn off on us. Mmmmmmm…. it makes my coffee fatty and yummy.
Plus, if I add a little cocoa powder in addition to my sugar…. mmmmmmm….. now it’s a mocha!
Dang it, now I’m running out of dry milk too fast! I see a flaw in my plan…..
