Drinking milk

I am sure that the majority of our members had a glass of milk with their meal. And milk in their cereal. So my questions are:

Do you still or occasionally drink milk with your meal?

Do you have occasionally dry cereal with milk?

Is milk a regular item when you go shopping?

How much milk do you go through in a week?

In my home, I can go through at least two gallons a week.

I don't drink or cook with milk at all, so I haven't had it or bought it in years.

The thing that is in our fridge all the time is heavy cream. Karen sometimes gets cereal and we get milk. If a recipe calls for milk, then we buy some. Most often, in this case, we will plan another dish to use it or end up throwing what is left away. Yes, there isn't any crying over spilled/tossed milk.

Never drink milk with a meal.

I drink milk with cake sometimes.

I use milk on cereal occasionally. Mostly in the warmer months.

We go through about 1 quart a week.

When I was younger, My mom insisted we had milk with breakfast and lunch ( dinner was orange juice). I absolutely hated milk. I refused to drink it. Only way they got me to drink it was chocolate milk, hot chocolate. I was probably such a pain in the butt about it, that by the time I reached being a teenager, my mother probably gave up and let me have ( or not have) whatever I wanted.

As an adult, I never had the urge to try it again. That being said, we have it on hand for cooking purposes ( mac and cheese ( not man and cheese, thats a different thread), hot chocolate, other recipes, baking ..... Oh, btw, I hated cereal too, but when I ate it ( usually frosted flakes), I had it dry.

My wife and kids do have cereal, with milk. But they have slowly been converting to the soy milk, almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk ...

I only buy milk when its part of a recipe I will be making that week. We usually keep a parmalot ( boxed milk) on hand in the pantry due to its extended shelf life, so we don't have one of those " Oh crap " moments, when your knee deep into a recipe, find out you have no milk on hand, then have to run down to the store ( a few miles away) before you can continue.

Drinking milk

I have a glass of milk in the morning. It's breakfast. I probably go through a gallon a week or so.

I'm pretty sure that a majority of our members do not have milk with their evening meal (assuming that's the meal you were referring to). We have wine with dinner.

We don't eat dry cereal and have none in the house.

We never buy milk. DH likes half and half in his coffee, so we typically have that on hand and buy it by the half gallon. If I need milk for a recipe, I use half and half; sometimes I dilute it and sometimes not.

To answer my own question. I am a coffeeholic. But I always have milk with every meal. And my kids do. My daughter's kids have continued to drink it with their meals also. I have had about three bone density tests done over the years. One doctor told me that I have the bones of a 29 y,o, It seems that all the males in my family still drink milk with their meals. My grandson stopped for a while. But when his first born was old enough to sit at the table, he and his wife drank milk along with her.
