Local milk and menu post

Does anyone know what this is? Something I am very, very excited about. My sister and I went to the Farmer's Market in Arlington last Saturday, and guess what I found?

That's right...local milk, baby.

I have been wanting to try milk from a local dairy for months now. Our Farmer's Market didn't carry this last year (here's to hoping they have it this year!), and I'd given up hope of ever finding some to try. I'm sure there's some around here somewhere, but was unlucky in my search.

So, I paid the ridiculous amount of money, brought it home, took a swig and fell in love.

Yes, it really is that good. The only way I can describe it is, the milk is way smoother tasting than mass produced milk. They even have fat free, 2%, whole milk and chocolate milk! Too bad the milk is in Memphis, otherwise I might have to become a frequent customer! Now, this is not to be confused with raw milk. I've never tried raw milk, but I've known people who have. This is pasteurized, but I'm guessing it's way less processed than mass produced milk. But who knows. All I know is that is tastes like heaven, folks.

Now for our menu for the week!

Broccoli & potato soup (bumped from last week)

Steaks & baked potatoes (this keeps getting bumped)

Chicken & spinach quesadillas

Since this is Mother's Day, I'm doing myself a favor and not cooking. So, it may be an eat-out night!

Homemade pizza

Something with the local beef I'm going to buy at the Farmer's Market on Saturday

Small group night, will take something

Go try some local milk, peoples! Especially if you live in Memphis or Arlington. Yum!!!
