In the name of cultural diplomacy, I thought I'd share a brilliant Canadian idea that never seemed to take off in the rest of the world: bag milk! If you're reading this in Bulgaria or some such country and you have bag milk too, please fire off a pleasant comment and correct me. I like to think it's just a Canadian thing.So here's how it works. You start off by going to the place where you get the best deal on milk. Strangely enough, in Toronto that place is Shopper's Drug Mart where 4 L (we use the Metric system, so don't ask me to convert to gallons) costs $3.99. Inside this plastic sheath you'll find three bags o' milk. In the above photo, you'll find our milk bag "pitcher" and this cool milk bag holder that sits in our fridge. When you need another bag, you just pull one out from the bottom and down plops the next one.
Step 2, you chuck the milk bag into the milk bag "pitcher." Sonny dearest loves this part. I think he pretends it's a bomb being dropped. Why do boys love to blow everything up?
Step 3. The bag doesn't slide down to the bottom, so you have to bang it down.
Voila: but we're not done yet...Snip, snip and now you're ready for coffee action - or just a nice glass of milk. Your choice.
That's all. Hope you enjoyed this little bit of Canadiana. Now here's another Canadian treasure: Feist and she's dancing in an airport.
