God Loves Us: He Made Milk

Yesterday morning we woke to rain, rain, rain. There was even some hail in our little neck of the woods. And if that wasn’t enough, FishPapa had to scrape ice off the windshield this morning — with a plastic sand shovel! Our ice scraper which we thought we would never use again is hidden in the depths of the garage. Yeah, we’ve gone soft our first winter away from Kansas City.

But, the chill in the air and the gloom of rain clouds makes for a perfect morning for oatmeal. One of our favorite ways to enjoy it is with apples, brown sugar, and cream. (You can find our recipe here.)

Cream, butter, and milk are just more evidence that God loves us. Mmmmmm good.

Speaking of milk, congratulations to:

Each of these ladies will be receiving three coupons, each good for one half gallon of some great tasting milk, good for drinking, cooking or baking. Wanna win some?

Stremicks Heritage Foods, with more than 35 years in the dairy business, was recently awarded the title, “#1 Tasting Organic Milk in America” by American Masters of Taste. To celebrate, Heritage Foods would again like to offer

four lucky LifeasMOM readers three free half-gallons of their organic milk this week.

And as a mom who cares what’s going into her kids’ bodies, I’m pleased to see that what they’re offering is a quality product: certified organic, free of antibiotics, hormones or other yucky stuff, ultra-pasteurized for purity and longer shelf life, “Real California Milk” certified, and available with Omega-3 DHA. This milk is sold at most Southern California Vons, Pavilions, Ralphs, and Albertsons. Go here to see if your local store carries it.

Wanna try some? Click here for a money-saving coupon worth $1 off any half gallon.

Fill in the form below to be entered in the drawing.

If you’re viewing this in a reader, click through to LifeasMOM so that you can view and complete the form. You can leave a comment, but only those who fill in the form will be entered to win. I am not going to sell your addresses or anything funky like that. Just want to have your contact info in order to send you your coupons.

Since there are so many winners this week, I really do want your address. So, please pick up your shoes, please shut the door to the frig, and please remember to leave me your address so you can win.

This giveaway will close Saturday at midnight PST. Be sure to come back early next week to see if you won.

    Your results said that I did win one of your milk giveaways but I never received the coupons in the mail. Is it too early to be looking for them?

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
