In Praise of Milk

FormalMilk

This post is in honor of my old 4-H days promoting dairy all June long. As an adult, I do fine when it comes to eating cheese and ice cream (probably too much ice cream). However, milk and I had a falling out. If I was up and moving around, I was OK, but sitting all day at my desk job, milk would start to quarrel with my digestive system. It also tended to spoil in my fridge before I drank it. So I opted for what my Uncle once called “the evil of the almond” instead of real milk. Recently, I’ve found some other options for people who have digestive issues with milk. I don’t buy them often, but when I do, it’s a treat. Real milk is so rich and sweet in comparison to almond milk. While I was shooting this photo, my furry little assistant became determined to get at the milk. I had to give her a bit of whipped cream to get her out of the way. She knows a good thing when she smells it, even if she’s not supposed to drink it. I spilled a few drops, and she promptly cleaned them up for me. As dairy month draws to a close, enjoy a glass of the good stuff. Just watch out if you live with a cat.

Next Time: Last Year’s Fireworks or Nature

If I can blog twice in one week, I’ll post the fireworks I shot last year.
