Ice Creamy Goodness

Okay, I’ve already found out how you guys like your milk.

It seems like everyone in that thread was trying to top each other on how fresh and raw they like their milk, with me, of course, liking it the least fresh of anyone.

Let’s see if this holds true on another, similar, topic. I like to treat my ice cream bowl and spoon like a mortar and pestle. I mash it up until it’s as liquid as it can possibly be, then fold a bunch of air into it, and blow on it to warm it up a little bit. Once it’s the consistency of a milkshake I will take small bites until it is gone, then lick the bowl clean. Finally, chase it with a shot of skim milk.  This is almost as good as my favorite ice cream, a chocolate banana milkshake from Dumser’s Dairyland in Ocean City, Maryland.

How’s that for not fresh? What is your favorite ice cream and how do you like to eat it?

How to drink milk

So, if you know me, you know that I am a big milk drinker. I always have been, my entire life. I used to drink 2%, then my family switched to 1%, and in college I finally made the transition to skim and haven’t looked back. I think that has definitely had a positive affect on my health.

Still, I’m guzzling down almost two gallons per week of the skim stuff.

I like the taste of milk after it’s been opened and in the refrigerator for a few days better than when it’s fresh (I call this being ‘aged’ because I am a nerd). Melissa, however, swore that it was best when the gallon had been opened just that day. I haven’t really heard anyone else express their preference on the topic, so I’m asking you to do so:

If you drink milk, when does it taste the best?

This is Madness!

At the grocery store today, I paid $3.99 for a gallon of orange juice, and $4.08 for a gallon of milk!

Milk more than orange juice?  Crazy!
