Here's where the story begins ... because this marvelous organic, non-ultra pasteurized milk is what it is, the shelf life is a bit shorter than what we're used to ... therefore, Tom's milk had curdled ... I had oatmeal cooking and gave him his options ... "Do you want your oatmeal plain, with soymilk, rice milk, or almond milk?"
I got 'the look' ... I suggested the almond milk since it's taste isn't quite a 'green' as the soymilk and not as thin as the rice milk. He agreed. I didn't pour as much milk as he would have had it been cow's milk, but enough that he could definitely taste it! Imagine my surprise when he liked it! And, imagine HIS surprise when he liked it.
Will almond milk replace his beloved cow's milk? No ... but perhaps it will on oatmeal! It's progress!!!
