you know you're a homesteader if...

...you run out of coffee creamer so you go outside to milk your goat and before you do anything else you strain it directly into your mug. Hmm, maybe this isn't how you know you're a homesteader as much as it is you know you're a coffee addict?

Whatever. I'm going with it.

That is the best! A mixture of Heidi and Calamity Jane. I bet that coffee tasted great.

Mmm...I have Goat Milk in my coffee every morning. SO DELICIOUS! Miss Mabel was one of our best investments :-)

Way better than having to run to the store, or using dried or canned milk (as we do when we run out of dairy for our morning caffeine.) :) And those CAF mugs are definitely the best Monday morning mugs. Mine was full of milky tea this morning, for sure.

We're learning about goats at Antlerstock, right? Can't have one right here but maybe I could board one at the farm two miles away. I could ride my bike over there in the am and pm for milkings. How cool would it be to ride home with a milk can in my basket. We freak out our neighbors regularly but that one might take the cake!

I love it! At the farm I used to work on in North Carolina, we had one milk cow and would take our coffee out to the shed for morning milking and make a "cowucccino"! It was delicious!

Bahaha! I would totally do this except for the fact that I take my coffee black. I wouldn't be surprised if my husband has strained milk directly over his cereal bowl. :)

Ooops, above comment from "grinder" is really Kate, Grinder's wife. Sorry honey, I know you'll love the day when I bring you home goat's milk but it isn't your next big project, it's mine:). Gotta remember to log into me before commenting. We will both be at Antlerstock though!

For me, coffee needs to be drank black - nothing else added.

Great mug!

I drink it black but if I took cream in it, I'd be right next to you milking a goat under similar circumstances!

Another way--just in case you don't have a goat about the place. Melt ice cream. My husband did that one time to have milk for pancakes.

done that myself. Heck, I typically drink the first cup full while I milk. Sweetest stuff in the world. And while you head in with that liquid gold, grab a couple eggs and there ya go

You simply cannot beat goat milk!
