[SkyWatch] Buttermilk in the Sky

When I was a child growing up in Finland I used to love buttermilk. When my family moved to Canada, I was given a glass, and for reasons beyond me then, I was instantly turned off; it just didn't taste the same! I had similar reactions to other dairy product like milk and especially butter, yet over the years I grew accustomed to them. But I never went back to drinking buttermilk.

I think of that wistfully every now and then when I see buttermilk in the sky.

 Manila, 2010

Do you drink buttermilk?

I'm linking with SkyWatch Friday where you'll find hundreds much more brilliant skies.

I do like buttermilk although for whatever reason I don't keep it around like I did at one time. But I do LOVE your buttermilk skies! What delightful captures for the day, Francisca! Hope your week has gone well and that you're ready for a delightful weekend!! Enjoy!

How very unusual.
Don't know about the buttermilk, but I like your sky.

So you grew up in Suomi? Huuva!

I always assumed buttermilk would be yucky and never tried it.
But your milky sky is pretty.

That's a great name for these skies, and beautiful images! I love buttermilk, but I wonder how much more I'd like it if I were drinking it in Finland? I remember when my Mom used to drink it and I hated it, so in my case, it's something I grew into. I don't remember why I tried it as an adult - maybe I read that it was good for you.

Hi Francisca, the place is called Silangang Nayon in Pagbilao, Quezon. for lunch, we didn't make any reservations. oh, when you're at The Tamarind Tree, don't miss to visit the cove in Pagbilao and the nearby islands. have fun!

I don't drink milk much so buttermilk. Buttermilk is what my hubby put as liquid to make a good pancake and it's really good. When I arrived here in MI (six years ago) he bought eggnog, for a newbie and haven't knew what is eggnog I drink it, it was ekkkkk! He wondered and all his family why I don't like it, I just don't nothing personal hehehe.
Note: Do you notice many Filipinos don't like or don't drink milk? I just read the comment of Luna she don't drink milk too hehe. Happy weekend and take care!

I used to drink a lot in my childhood in Germany. then when we moved to Belgium it was rather hard to find. Now I get it everywhere and I still love to drink it when it's very hot in summer ! nice and ice cold !

Lovely skies but I've never heard them called buttermilk skies. I've never tasted buttermilk either - obviously, I've never lived ;-)

Jacob said...

I tried buttermilk once when a kid. Never again.

Perhaps that's why I call these cotton candy skies.

Maybe I should talk with my shrink?

JM said...

I like to see these together so very much!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Nope! One of thos things that look wayyyy better than they taste! I wonder what's different about it from place to place though.

Your pictures are beautiful

I know exactly what you mean and I get wistful too, sometimes, when I see these skies.
I don't know if I had even had buttermilk before I lived in Holland, but their buttermilk and yoghourt I absolutely loved. When I came back to Canad, I was so disappointed in the taste and texture of both.

I've never tasted buttermilk - I don't think you can get it generally here. We call these skies 'mackerel' - a long way from buttermilk!

This is a lovely sky, Francisca!

Pat Tillett said...

I used to love buttermilk, but for some reason or another, I haven't had any in years...
