We go through a lot of milk in our house and I like to recycle things as much as possible. That includes milk jugs. Harley loves to play milk jugs but you can only have so many laying around the house at one time. Another one of my favorites is to make something with them.

Since we started RV’ing this year, I didn’t have a Christmas tree. And since I love Christmas, I had to get one along with with ornaments. I only bought a few but I forgot the tree topper. So why not make one? That’s how I came up with the Milk Jug Angel Craft.

But it’s also versatile. I can also use it on my table as a decoration. I placed it on top of a flameless candle and the light shines through as if the Milk Jug Angel is holding it. I love it.

During the holidays, it’s a must to have a couple gallons of Hiland Dairy milk on hand as well as butter, heavy cream, and ice cream. Creamed carrots and peas is not everyone’s favorite vegetable but it’s mine and my family’s. Just like turkey is a must have on Thanksgiving, so is my creamed carrots and peas recipe, chocolate and banana cream pies and sausage stuffing. If you are one of those people that think that all milk and dairy products are the same….think again!

We always use Hiland Dairy products because of the pride that they take in their products. Did you know that it is farmer owned? When a company is owned by the people that put into it, they want nothing but the best because they control the quality and consistency. They produce the freshest, best-tasting dairy products. It’s produced with no artificial growth hormones and tested for antibiotics.

Now, if you are located where Hiland Dairy products are not sold, I’m sorry that you are missing out. But if you ever get to where they are made and sold, you will definitely taste the difference.
