    Default Milk

    Not the film, the beverage. I've basically been avoiding white milk since I was about 16 years old. I've always loved (and regularly drank) chocolate milk, but I haven't really enjoyed drinking white milk. And I'm not a huge breakfast eater, so I've never really been into cereal. Plus my parents powerblasted the whole "milk at dinner" thing while I was growing up, so as an adult I've generally avoided it.

    Recently, though, within the past year, I've been drinking a lot more milk. Why? Maple View Farm. It's a dairy in Hillsborough, North Carolina (west of Chapel Hill), and they make and distribute premium fresh milk. It comes in glass bottles and is available at higher-end grocery stores in the area. Their chocolate milk tastes like a milkshake, and their whole white milk is amazing, especially when cold. There's something amazing about milk that comes in glass bottles. I love the stuff.

    Just now I was eating a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats with whole milk. It's one of the best everyday desserts I know of.

    Do any of you have access to fresh, local, premium milk? If so, you should give it a shot.

    Mmmmmm Milk. We drink the whole stuff, but it has been a long while since we have purchased the extra-premium stuff (tastes SOOO goood).

    I don't understand why people drink the 2% and skim. I mean something better taste pretty damn good before a person is willing to drink the glandular excretion from an animal's hairy teet. Good whole milk, full of fat, meets the standard, but who in their right mind would suck a hairy teet for skim?

    When I first started drinking soy milk, it was a struggle. Occasionally I would sneak a drink of regular milk and it tasted wonderful. But I have grown to like soy milk. I had a drink of regular milk the other day and thought it was just so-so.

    I refer to whole milk as "white death".

    I prefer rice to soy. I have been using rice milk on my cereal because cow's milk bothers my baby. I don't think I will go back to the cow when I am done nursing. I like the malty, vanilla flavor it adds to my cereal. Though I don't think I could drink it plain.

    I drink soy as well. I liked the archer farms brand soy milk from Target. But usually I get the Light Silk. Sometimes I'll get the vanilla, but usually I prefer plain. I am not really loyal to any brand though so typically it's what is on sale. I only use it in cold cereal so it's not that important to me.

    Generally, I think milk is food for baby cows. But we have a local dairy here with milk that is cheaper than the supermarket prices. And the milk tastes unbelievably good. I still won't just drink a glass, but I love it all the same.

    The place is trapped in the 1970s. You can buy a banana split big enough for three for about $2.75, and in the summer there are a couple of Amish kids that sell strawberries by the doorway. One of the perks of country living, I guess.

    My family consists of me, my wife, my nine year old daughter, 7 year old son and 7 month old baby. I bought 9 gallons of milk last Tuesday. We have one gallon left as of tonight.

    Milk is good.

    The best thing about being the only one in the family with lactose intolerance is that I never get a glass when I want a quick drink. I always guzzle straight from the carton.

    That's two gallons per person in one week. Do you buy 9 gallons in one grocery store trip? And if so, where the heck do you store it?

    When my son left for college our weekly milk consumption went from 7 gallons for five people to 3.5 gallons for 4 people. We drink skim milk; all the nutirtion, hormones and fortifications, virtually none of the fat. I am not sure what animal Robin is getting his milk from, but the cows I have milked don't have particularly hairy teats.

    They have just enough hairs on those teets to be extra gross... like the two hairs springing form a mole. Of course some cows get very self-conscious about this and so they wax.

    My Grandpa had a dairy farm, so I love milk. An ice cold glass of raw milk with the cream stirred in is awesome.

    We have whole milk at our house. I love it, but have really cut back on it because of doctor's orders for my chronic sinusitis. It's helped a little, but I'm not so sure it's worth it, as I'm supposed to cut out all dairy products.

    I feel the same way about Coca-cola from glass bottles, especially las que son hechas en México.

    I live in the sticks, hardcore sticks, like the biggest building in my county is the damned NASCAR track. We-have-the-only-Wal*Mart-in-four-counties sticks. So, I was hopeful when we moved here that there would be this Jurgis-Rudkus-goes-to-the-countryside-and-gets-his-strength-back cornucopia of fresh foods and dairy available.

    Nope, the "farmers market" is all from California and Mexico, save an occasional corn or sweet potato grower.

    Damnit!

    You need to come up here to the Farmer's Market some time. It's all stuff grown here in the central part of the state. There's some great local stuff available.

    I love Milk. I've drank a lot of it since I was a kid.

    I have two requirements for milk:

    1. It has to be out of a glass. I won't drink milk from a plastic cup.

    2. It has to be cold. I don't like to drink the milk the day it is purchased from the store. It has to sit in our second fridge for a few days to get nice and cold.

    Okay, 3 requirements: I won't drink skim milk. I can handle 1% and I prefer 2%. Whole is just a little too much for me.

    As some of you know, I have a special, intimate relationship with milk.

    We had a milk cow when I was growing up on the farm. Only had three functional teats, so she wasn't much good in the swimwear contest. Still, there is definitely something disturbingly sexual about teen boys fondling her giant mammary glands in the privacy of the barn twice a day, resulting in all of that white creamy fluid.

    We got a lot of milk out of the exercise too.

    I kid, but I do rather like raw whole milk, cream stirred in. I attribute most of my size to it, as a matter of fact - genetics say I should not be as big as I am, but I had a nearly unlimited supply of raw milk, fresh eggs and steak when I was a growing teen. High fat content, so you have to be careful, but tasty.

    And there are at least 3 things that must be served with cold milk:

    chocolate chip cookies

    brownies

    yellow cake with chocolate frosting

    roast beef dinner w/ mashed potatoes

    And when you ran out of steak, did your grandma tell you to 'Make a dang kay-sa-dilla?'

    I've milked cows before and there was nothing sexual about a gigantic smelly beast shitting and pissing next to my head as my arms burned from the hard work that is milking. I mean, aside from the milk, there's nothing pleasant about the experience. And I milked cows when I was a horny teenager, but a sexual thought never crossed my mind there.

    Damn you, spoiling perfectly good humor with your truthiness.

    The arm burns go away with practice, though. And, to this day, I have an iron grip.

    Tell me about it - it's ridiculous. I don't normally buy that much milk. There was a great sale on it, so I wanted to stock up. We usually get 4-6 gallons at a time.

    The nine gallons did fit in the fridge, however.
