I thought the bagged milk tale might create a few comments but it's been quite funny to hear the questions it has created. Some people asked was about storage. Here's how we find it in coolers in the grocery store.
Until tonight I thought everyone just stored it in the fridge by laying it on a shelf until it's ready to be used and moved into the upright container. This is what milk looks like in my fridge. (Note the delicious Raspberry and Pretzel Jello Salad. Kim posted it on her blog last fall and I made it 4 times for get-togethers over Christmas. Yummy!!)
My friend Michelle emailed me tonight with a pic of her milk storage container. I didn't know these existed. It even has a neat little place to put the 'best before' tab which works better than the hanging from the bottom of a shelf method that I use.
Years ago, when I was in Alberta visiting a Bible College, their milk was served in small bags. To drink the milk you took a thin straw that was pointed at one end, covered the other end with your thumb (trust me....this was a very important step which I once forgot) and then stab the bag. Cool!
Who would have thought the little milk bargoon would create not only one but 2 posts? It's fun learning how things are done differently depending on where we live!
