can you freeze milk? Kroger has half gallons 10 for 10.....
Yes, that's an excellent price. Freezing milk is fine, as long as you put it in a slightly larger container, to allow for expansion. Otherwise, you may split the seams on the plastic milk container, and thawing will result in an awful mess.

Yes, you can. I do it every month. The eagle only flies once a month around here, plus I live several miles from a grocery. I also freeze a pitcher of tea and that keeps it from getting cloudy.

@Lala.. You are right. The CREATOR has blessed us with more time on this planet and I don't think it was so we could just sit in a rocking chair or spend it all on a computer debating with others. I just went out for dog-tree time and the stars are shining brightly. So maybe I will get to mow grass today. In Honor of old George Jones "I Don't Need Your Rocking Chair".

@Betty.. Lala is also right about the milk expanding. I buy 4 gallons every month and keep and clean out one used carton and pour a little from each of the 4 that I intend to freeze into the recycled carton. But I also notice that when Kroger has 10 for 10 pricing, if you only get 2 or 3 items the register will still give you the lower price and you don't have to buy all 10.

Here is another helpful hint that I intend to use real soon. I have found that in cooking for one person, I can put 2 Pillsbury Grand Buttermilk frozen biscuits right out of the freezer and into a toaster oven set at 400 degrees, then I put some bacon in my George Foreman grill on the top part and sliced potatoes on the lower part.

The ridges in the grill keeps the bacon from shriveling up and both sides cook at the same time. The grease drips through the potatoes and into a catch container and I place that over into a cool skillet of eggs turned to medium heat.

Everything is all done at once and nothing burns and the only thing left is to decide how much to eat and how much to pass on to the dog, LOL

sigh. every morning a quarter past five....poodle does his little dance (half on my head.... half on what ever other vermit has krept up on the pillow beside me) so i take rotten out...i do not wake up. i just kinda wait inside the door with my nose sticking out if its cold and if its warm enough i may sit on the step and wait....but i do not really wake up. this is a good system because if i make it back to the bed with out actually waking up.... i might get another hour of sleep in before angel wants out (you know...because heaven forbid they coordinate.) then its time to wake up for good. blah.

so i thought, well i will just be slick and drag an 80 pound dog out of her cave..... if i can just get her over the door jam...surely nature will take over.... and maybe...just maybe...i can squeeze in an extra twenty minutes in there.
nope. she went to the end of the porch and sat down. um.... ok. now im going to have to get her off the porch. so i go....do that and on the way back (and remember at this point eyes are half open im bare foot, on a cold wet porch...but somehow not awake)stepped on a slug.

well there goes that idea....just no way to fall back into slumber once i have had to face the blazing bright bathroom. this was like... a mutant monster slug... at least three inches long. now that i am fully awake...i vaguely remember having a slug problem last year.

sure my container garden is whats bringing them in large numbers....last year...if you went out at just the right time, you could catch as many as three or four monsters, a couple intermediates. and a dozen babies..... so im thinking that's enough to say its an infestation.

probably should do something about that. in the mean time, good morning everyone.

gave up on sleep <rolls eyes> and have the you tube jukebox going this morning.

im thinking (mainly because of hubby starting school and we will be transitioning income sources and im in freak out/stock up mode)
like a layer of half gallons on the bottom of my deep freeze. thinking i need to take out about half a cup per container and that should make close to a gallon for us to drink now. also thinking a single layer in my deep freeze (like a 7 cubic feet chest) i could do about twenty half gallons.

any idea how long they last? we like milk so i think i could have them gone in three months... and i would think it would be like infant milk and keep for six months....but googling of course came up with a hundred different answers for what i thought to be a pretty simple question.

never tried it with taters...but we use a knock off grill to do burgers and i like to put bacon at the top, once everything is just about done i wipe the lid clean and top cheese and bacon and the top bun, then the bottom bun turned opposite, and close but not squeeze the lid down and unplug it. cheese melted, buns warm. def going to have to try the potatos...that sounds so good.

Good morning,folks. Today is dawning bright and sunny. Makes the grass grow...poor Hubby has been mowing and weed eating. I need to learn to use our new mower. I used to mow the whole place on our smaller ZTR mower. Now Hubby has bought a new one and it's huge, and a bit intimidating. It is supposed to have a slow gear,but it seems to have two---fast and faster. And when you hit one of those crawfish mud mounds--poof and the dried mud goes flying. It dulls the blade, but we have some wet places, and you can't avoid them.

@ Betty: You have great ideas. I'll have to try some of them. I know what it is like to step on slugs..Squash!

@AW: Stein sends his regards to Dog. Stein is busy sleeping on the bed, head on pillow, as I type. He's got imitating humans down to a science.

Hope that everyone has a good day. I'll pop back in later. Lala

Yuck. My mother raised me alone, and we were poor when I was growing up. I had Spam up to my eyeballs during those days. These days, a lobster dinner is more appetizing to me, but not too often. It's not too cheap in central Kentucky. Living withing driving distance to the ocean, and inexpensive seafood, are the only things I miss about New England.
I don't mind the spam on topix threads. I just scroll by and hardly notice it at all.
I was in South Carolina for 8 years, and Baltimore for 2, I know what you mean about not getting good sea food, it's either frozen or you're paying for shipping...

But, some of the ways one can cook spam is pretty good.

Many things I guess are an acquired taste?

Let's see.. rains came, grass grew, corn got planted, grass wasn't mowed, Betty's mower is broken, AB surely has a good cat video, and spam spasm has a new recipe. Does that about cover today's boredom?
I will sleep well knowing all is normal on the bird thread. LOL Good Night All.
I'm glad I didn't see this before you went to bed...

I'd hate to mess up your nice dreams and all

But, the corn ain't planted yet

Oh yes, my corn is planted and I don't really care about yours LOL Nothing you can post would ever mess up my nice dreams. The CREATOR offers too many blessings to allow some unknown poster to affect my life and living. LOL Have a good day!!

It is finally dry enough here that I can mow at least parts of my 2 acres and by the time I finish that, the sunshine should take care of the rest.
