No crying over spilled milk…or should I say WARM milk.
Hubby and I ran up to the antique store in Harmony, MN so we could stock our booth there. We ran into some childhood friends of Hubby and talked and talked.
Then on the way home I requested to stop at the convenience store to get milk. We did…got eggs and butter too. About five miles down the road towards home I realized that I forgot Cool Whip for a dessert I had started at home. So we made sure we drove through another town with a convenience store and got it. There we again met up with friends and chatted and chatted.
We were now WAY later than we anticipated being. We were expecting some of our kids home for supper so I was worried I was running late. We got home and I immediately went in the house and started organizing things for supper.
I completely forgot about the milk and groceries. AH!!!! My kids laugh at me saying it’s only a $3 gallon of milk. Don’t worry about it. But that’s not how I was raised and that’s not how I do things. I got the milk, although warm, it was not spoiled. So I started cooking….
Before long that gallon of warm milk went from this…to this…
Ah…I feel much better not wasting all of the milk. If only I could think of one more thing to make with lots of milk…Got it! A milk based soup will use up the rest.
I’m off… I’m making this soup recipe of Ham and Cheese Chowder. Find recipe HERE.
That should use up the rest of the milk.
Now, my own children who laugh at me for not just throwing out the milk, see who wins…we all do!! I didn’t waste the milk and we’ll be eating good for a little bit!!
Do you have recipes that use lots of milk? I’d love you to share them. Admittedly, leaving the milk in the car has happened to me before and may happen again….(just being honest)
