Hey, maybe hard times are having a beneficial effect.
This bottle is one on which you make a deposit, and then take it back for recycling. I vaguely recall that from my childhood in Cedar Rapids. And I definitely recall those 10 oz. Pepsi bottles! The ones that came in wooden crates.
“Hey Chuck, that’s WHOLE milk!”
“Yup, it went so fast, I got this half gallon at TJ’s. But I didn’t read the SMALL print until I got home.”
Oh. I see. Guess I’ll be buying my milk one quart at a time now. It’s more money, but I DO like the packaging.
I gotta say, after the initial shock, that whole milk tastes pretty damn good. I think it’s another example of the body liking and disliking what it wants. Currently, I dislike any form of alcohol and crave things like milk that is just FULL of fat.
Maybe someday I will actually reach 3000 calories. I had a good start today w/ 6 whole wheat crepes stuffed w/ creme cheese and (no sugar added) fruit spread. That’s jam to you and me. Of course, Brigitte tells me I’m just lying to myself b/c that ‘grape juice concentrate’ is just sugar. She’s right, but it’s not that refined sugarcane sugar. And I need to put on some weight NOW. BTW, I added about 2 Tbsp of agave syrup to the whole wheat crepe mix b/c w.w. is just a bit …………. rough or coarse. Not ……….. what word am I looking for ……… uh, ………. refined.
I’m going back to simpler times. Unrefined flour and milk in a thick bottle that I recycle. No refined food. Whole foods. No processed food. I think I’ll start speaking like 1865 soon.
