I've been drinking raw milk for several weeks now. A very refreshing way to consume it is iced cafe au lait. The other day I went to make myself just such a drink, but because I wanted to skim the cream off my latest share of milk, I used some ultra pasturized milk instead. OMG, did that stuff taste HORRID! I'm also getting spoiled by grass fed beef and pastured pork and free range chickens. I can't help but wonder if part of this country's obesity problem isn't due to "real" food being so tasteless that it cannot compete with food-like products. What we are truly hungry for is nutrition and flavor, but we aren't getting it at the grocery store.
Second topic: Look what I found on the patio today:
Itsy bitsy teeny weeny eggplants!
I hope they grow faster than the Meyer lemons are projected to.
