Canadians like their…. topsy turvy measuring systems

Shot glass that has both metric and standard measurements 

I already posted about how they like the metric system. That’s a given.

It’s not just that they use the metric system, though. It’s that any given recipe may use multiple types of measurements. It wasn’t uncommon for me to have to use the scale for weighing flour…a spoon for teaspoons….and then another type of cup for milliliters (or more likely, dig around online for a conversion). Gah! It’s bad enough having to use multiple teaspoons, tablespoons, and half cups anyway, pfft.

So after listening to me whine about this more than once, Mom sent me the above/below ‘shot glass’ measuring glass for Christmas last year. It covered every type of measuring I might encountered under the half cup mark so that I didn’t have to try to convert the measurements…. or dirty every spoon in the house.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, that’s purple leopard printed socks tucked inside….also part of my quirky gift box collection that was sent. <3
