Default Too Much Milk!

Currently in my refrigerator I have:
- Whole milk for under-2 DCKs
- Almond milk for DCG
- 1% milk for over-2 DCKs
- Organic skim milk for me
- Organic 1% milk for the rest of my family
- Organic chocolate milk for the soccer players

There's no room for food!

I have organic 1% and that's it.

I do not drink milk at all.

Most my DCK's don't either.

My DH and I buy a small container of milk every now and then for use in cooking but it usually goes bad before we use it.

I grew up drinking milk that had to be shaken before being served (mix the cream up since it rises to the top) straight from the cow. Would never have believed I'd be a non-milk drinker but I am.

haha That is a very full fridge. I have a mini fridge in the daycare room, where I keep 2 gallons of 1%, and half gallon of organic whole milk and a half gallon of Almond Milk. In the family fridge upstairs we usually go through the 2 gallons of 1% each week. 2 of my kids drink. My oldest (6) decided she doesn't like it, which is fine.

Milk bar, LOL!

I also had a small bottle of breast milk I didn't include because it was a special circumstance. My DD went away for the holiday and pumped so her milk wouldn't dry up but GDD is 16 mos so she's on cow milk here.

Want me to pick one up for you?
I can drink regular milk, but a few years ago decided to try soy because it's healthier and I liked it.

I keep a 1/2 gallon of organic whole milk in the fridge. The Daycare kids barely drink any and my family doesn't drink any. Well Dh would if I bought some for him but I don't think people should drink cow milk.

I think cows milk is a much healthier choice than soy or almond milk. Soy is too connected to GM techniques and certain cancers etc and almond milk will effect chronic migraine sufferers so cows milk seems to be a better choice from all the reasearch I've done but I don't drink any of it any more so...

My husband can down a gallon of store bought (processed) milk every few days, but I AM the weirdo for only drinking raw goat's milk I know people may not like the barnyard flavor, but it is pretty much the only type of milk I will drink.

We live in a 1000 cow dairy farm...our refrigerated tanks hold 50,000 gallons. I offer whole milk here and never buy chocolate milk. Chocolate milk is made from milk from herds that don't meet the quality standards set for dairies-it is basically the "junk milk"

I can legally buy cream @ the top milk here (pasteurized so it can be sold in the Earth Fare stores)... yep, I go thru a gallon a week & I know exactly where it comes from as the farm is local... of course I own a cow share directly thru the farm; my personal gallon comes from the farm, not store bought ("Bessie" gets milked within 24 hrs of me picking up every Friday night). I actually can't drink or eat anything with soy

I have soy (dc) organic skim (dc and family) and organic whole (dc)

That's enough!

We do a farm share for milk. It is SO fresh!

I don't personally like any milk, only a little on cereal on occassion.
