If you have ever had milk in Ukraine, you know it's SO MUCH BETTER THAN OUR MILK. Right???
I can still remember sitting in our little apartment like it was yesterday...having just walked the mile and a half back from the store in blizzard like weather, in the dark....but we had the milk...so it was all worth it! Take aside the fact that it was in a bag, and very unpractical because it spilled so easily, it was the best milk ever. So creamy and good. Anyway, we would get out our smoked cheese, and cheesecake yogurt bars, and the milk. Pure Heaven. We had all the burners on the stove on high to warm the place up, with a tea kettle steaming for the extra heat...the windows all steamed up...the clown cartoon on (any of you remember that? The wife clown was always trying to hide the husband clowns bottle of Vodka) awwwwww....life was good. I REALLY miss it there.
Anyway, back to the milk.... my son Shane is into 'health' stuff and started bringing organic milk home and I have to say it's the closest thing I've had here to the wonderful Ukrainian milk. Moloko.
If you're like me and miss everything Ukraine, go try some :) For a minute you just may think you're back there ;)
