Oxymoron

There I was in the dairy section chatting away and letting my fingers shop with little intervention from my brain. That's how I came to bring this stuff home -- non-fat milk and corn syrup. After one bite of my fresh peaches and not half & half, I was suddenly paying attention. You see that little sticker down there that reads real? Real, what?! Oxymoron: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words; something (as a concept) that is made up of contradictory or incongruous elements

Do you think the indian girl is 'real'

PS - If you just want half fat milk, can you not just but a pint (or litre) of full fat, and add one pint (or litre) of water when you get home. Then you get 2 pints (or litres) for the same money, and you have to carry less all the way home in your shopping bag. Q

PS - I know what you mean about the Strip. That's is what makes the 'neon' lights glow at night. lol!

I grew up drinking REAL milk from REAL cows. This is what I have to say about non-fat milk – fill a glass with whole milk, find a nice farm cat and transfer the milk from your glass to its bowl – now, take that empty glass, fill it with water and look at it. To you that is non-fat milk. To me that is a dirty glass.

Yep, I like my milk straight from a cow too. Well not literally, we used to boil it first, and fight for the cream on top.

Oddly enough my cousin introduced me to 'flavoured' soya milk a few years ago. Not the 'real' thing by a long chalk, but it does make a refreshing summer drink.

Silk Soymilk -- Chocolate -- provides iron, potassium, calcium, omega06 acids, fiber & protein, with no cholesterol and little fat (we'll just skip over the carb count)-- yummy stuff.

Delicious, the Incas were onto something with chocolate too. No problems with carb count here, I'm blessed with the ability to burn energy like a nuclear reactor. lol!

Life is full of contradictions!
Just had to visit for a while. Personally, I believe we should enjoy the real things in food but its the moderation I have trouble with...especially when it taste so good!
