Never thought I'd be one to freeze milk.
But alas. It turns out it is actually something that is working for me right now.
All three of my kids and my husband are lactose intollerant or allergic to cows milk. I am not. But obviously I'm not drinking an entire gallon of milk within the dates by myself. I'll have an occasional bowl of cereal and make a latte a couple times a week, maybe cook with it a few nights a week... but that's it.
A quart of milk in my grocery store cost $1.65.
Two weeks ago I got an entire gallon for $2.
So I froze half of it in 2 cup portions.
It is perfect for lattes because I'd never notice a difference in consistency. It is working out great for cooking too. I have to admit I have not ventured to defrost a cup and actually drink it on cereal yet... I'm just a little afraid of the consistency being weird.
