Coconut Milk - OBSESSED!

Do you LOVE milk?  I never have.  Even as a child.  I know I need calcium for my skinny bones so I continue on my quest to find a milk that I enjoy. I've tried Almond Milk, and Soy Milk.  This week I tried Coconut Milk.  I have always loved the taste of the milk as it flows from a fresh coconut so I thought I would try it.  I am now obsessed with my new coconut milk.  It is so tasty and smooth.  If any of you have any pros or cons, I would love to hear from you.   I have not tried cooking / baking with it yet.  I also have not tried putting chocolate syrup in it, but I'm sure I will this weekend!!  Hmm. . . I'm thinking a glass of it would be great right now with this piece of pound cake I am eating. Here are some advantages I found online that I thought I would share with you.  Since I am trying to GAIN weight, I was not happy to see "aids in weight loss" on the list, however some of you will be happy to see that I'm sure!

Chicken and Yellow Rice Casserole Boil three chicken breasts until done.  Shred meat and put in the bottom of 9 x 13 buttered casserole. Cook one package of yellow rice, one onion chopped, four stalks of celery chopped.   Spread one can of cream of mushroom soup over chicken, then top with cooked rice mixture.  Top all with buttered breadcrumbs and bake in 350 oven for about 20 minutes until
