My Wonderful Milk Memories | Chocolate Abuelita Recipe
I was thinking today about all the wonderful memories I have of milk and realized that milk is an essential part of our everyday life. Not a day goes by when we don’t use it. If there is no milk in the refrigerator chances are that you probably won’t be able to make or eat a lot of your favorite foods. You also can’t bake without milk! I’m so thankful that we don’t have to imagine a world without milk because just about every holiday recipe I enjoy for Thanksgiving uses milk.
As a young girl I enjoyed the calming effects of a cup of Chocolate Abuelita during the Holidays! I still drink it and have passed on the love of Chocolate Abuelita to my family and serve it to them the entire Holiday season. I also enjoy arroz con leche and atole! Such great memories come to mind when I think of my childhood milk memories!
As an adult I still enjoy all the milk memories of my past, but now I am able to make my very own memories by cooking milk recipes. I enjoy making yogurt parfaits, smoothies and ice cream. My favorite milk recipes include mashed potoatoes, arroz con leche, and atole.
When I think of the ways I enjoy drinking milk I think about desserts. I love drinking a glass of chocolate cake, apple pie or banana cream pie with a glass of milk. However, the best way to drink milk during the Hoildays is with cookies. It sounds kind of corny, but I’m so thankful for milk.
