I am super excited to announce I have just graduated the big kids to nonfat milk! The best part being, we now buy all our dairy in glass containers!! See, despite my efforts to go all glass in the past, I just couldn't get the speaking children to warm up to Straus' low-fat milk with all it's little bits of floating fat at the top. No matter how much I shook that bottle, I was never able to get the cream at top to fully blend with the 1/2 gallon of non-fat milk below. The baby was another story. We started him early so he didn't know any different.
But after last weeks tour of the dump and learning that glass is the best solution, that No. 1 plastic can only be recycled one more time and that cartons can only go into landfill, I was inspired to make a change. I remembered our pediatrician encouraging us to move from 1% to non-fat, and so I (enthusiastically) took the plunge.
End of story. Turn the page.
In other Straus news...
I just got an email from Marin Organic announcing the unique opportunity to take a tour of Straus Creamery in Marshall, CA, next Thursday! How convenient that that just *happens* to be our date night. Baby and I are going to raise the roof! Nothing more romantic than engorged utters and warm milk with cream on top! (Hi, Honey!)
So I've made us a reservation and afterward we'll take it one step further with a sleepover at Nick's Cove, just down the road.
I'll be sure to post (the G-rated) pictures when the time comes!
