My cockatoo loves milk, buttermilk, cheese, yogurt, & ice cream. Don't try to drink milk without offering some to him. Your ears will suffer for it. My African grey would have liked to have lived on only cheese.

Me too, with lots of fresh ground pepper. What are blue cheese bites?

Ranch type vegetable dip:
In a blender, 1 cup mayo, 1 cup buttermilk, minced garlic to taste, S&P, chopped parsley, 5 saltine or townhouse crackers. Blend until smooth and refrigerate. It thickens up.
This is so great for dipping broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, radishes and more.

Presumably you have gotten through your buttermilk by now, but the next time Kroger over-packages it's dairy products don't forget about buttermilk chocolate cake. It's our kids' favorite.
