One of my most favorite memories of my childhood revolves around a simple shopping trip. My family was visiting my mom’s parents, and my grandma needed some ingredients at the grocery store. She asked my grandpa to run to the store and get “butter, milk and eggs.” I got to go along with my grandpa, and as we got into the car, he said, “We’re going to trick grandma and get buttermilk and eggs!” Oh, I could hardly wait! This was going to be SOOOO fun! We, of course, got butter, milk, eggs, and buttermilk, because I’m sure that while Grandpa enjoyed a good joke, he didn’t want to have to go back out to the store!
Somehow my grandma wasn’t tricked, but it was still fun anyhow! And my grandpa and I both enjoyed a glass of buttermilk that afternoon!
Recently, there were two different bloggers who mentioned buttermilk. And of course, I had to put it down on my shopping list! I just love buttermilk, but I rarely buy it. Buttermilk is definitely an acquired taste, and thankfully (LOL) Kevin hasn’t acquired a taste for it. So that meant more for me. *Grin*
Ahhh…memories. I don’t often drink buttermilk, but when I do, I always think of my grandpa and our shopping trip!
