June 1, 2019 - World Milk Day Dinner

In 2001, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) selected June 1st as World Milk Day, which celebrates the important contributions of the dairy sector to sustainability, economic development, livelihoods and nutrition.

https://worldmilkday.org/

I recently read "Milk" by Mark Kurlansky. It was a pretty interesting read, covering the variety of animal milks humans have consumed over the centuries and around the world, not to mention making cheeses as a way of preserving milk. We take the safety of milk for granted, but I was surprised at how many people died from drinking milk before pasteurization came into practice.

Dinner tonight will be grilled shrimp, grilled asparagus, and basmati rice with sun dried tomatoes and scallions. I'll have some cheese as an appetizer to celebrate milk day.

Unless plans change, we'll have fried cod. The fish department will be frying it up fresh for me while I shop for the accompaniments - corn on the cob and Tater Tots, Himself's favorite. If I'm feeling less than lazy, I might use some of our milk and make chocolate pudding for dessert.

I've always loved milk. In particular, I like the brand name Fairlife non fat, lactose free milk.
Speaking of non pasteurized milk, I nearly died from drinking it in Mexico many years ago.


I'm making Filipino Chicken Adobo with coconut "milk" which of course isn't really milk. It will be served over Lo Mein noodles.

My plan is to toss a burger on the grill, to be served on a ciabatta bun with some cheese, lettuce and spicy mayo. Double fried fries on the side. Basic June food.

I sniff the strawberries every time I go to the store, just waiting for that peak of season sweetness I know is just about here. We are also about a week from Texas peach season.

Pan-fried pork chops, roasted potatoes, and fresh corn.
Easy bachelor fare.

We ordered subs. I was thinking of making a salad with eggs, but it's too chilly for that to be appealing.

For tonight's dinner I grilled some kielbasa, made a spinach and cheese bake and SO made us salads.

Well, plans delayed, but not canceled. Texas summer pop-up thunderstorm. Nothing new. I'm not in the middle of a big lake on my boat, this time, so no big deal. Been there, done that -- it sucks.
