I just used my WIC checks for the month and noticed they gave me six gallons of milk...why? Yes, I'm nursing but do they think I'm nursing a baby cow? Why so much milk but only one small block of cheese and one tiny loaf of bread? Weird!

Yeah I've noticed that too... We tend to just get 1 of the gallons or if we get 2 we get a 2% for me and a vitamin D for my SO I mean I eat a ton of cereal but the only time we use that much is when I make potato soup (7cups of milk)

I suppose they're expecting we're going to cook with it. But most of my recipes call for evaporated milk.

We use six gallons of milk in a week. Looks like WIC would have worked well for me! LOL!

If you have time you can make mozerella with a gallon of whole milk. It's not too hard!
