I produced my own milk today, for the first time ever. It felt nice and satisfying in a somewhat strange way. Not many people have had this feeling yet. Have you?
The milk was fresh, it tasted different from the store bought milk. I’ve had this milk before, obviously, many times, but today it tasted more satisfying and delicious. When you make it yourself it increases the satisfaction. Sure there is some effort required, squeezing hard to extract every drop to avoid wastage, but its well worth the effort.

There is constant innovation in the food industry. And heres quite an interesting one that I never heard of before. It combines eating, drinking and drinking (alcohol) all in one.
Bryant Park Hotel's Cellar Bar has introduced three new seasonal soups, alcohol included. Aptly named the "Soup Cocktails," the variations comprise of a Lobster Bisque, "infused with Harvey's Bristol Crème and porto, with seasonal spices and cayenne pepper," an Herb-Tomato, "blended with vodka and raspberry liqueur and finished with a pinch of sea salt, dry basil and black pepper," and a Carrot Ginger with, "Domaine de Canton and Frangelico liqueurs." At $9 each, the drinks are more affordable than a fancy martini, and obviously more filling, too.
If I saw this on a menu I would be most tempted to order it. Actually I am most tempted to make this at home.
