American tablespoon is 14.2 ml
Australian tablespoon is 20 ml
Canadian tablespoon is 15 ml (generally, apparently it varies)

Technically, ours are three 5ml teaspoons as well, but obviously not when it comes to the actual size of the tablespoon...one really makes little difference but put several together in a recipe and it could be a disaster; that, and it's more a fun fact.

The American tablespoon is the laughing stock in the international showers.

Way too many replies for me to reply individually like I would normally, but thank you SO MUCH to everybody for you replies. My girlfriend and I are getting as much information as possible right now so everything is appreciated, thank you!!

What is the cost of groceries like? I know Meat is way cheaper for the US than UK, but is that the case in Canada too? Not so much eating out as we don't too often (Couple times a month probably) but how much are basics for you guys?

Oats, eggs, meat etc?

Thanks everybody!!

I spend about $1000 per month for a family of 3. However, I buy only the healthiest stuff at Costco. Cost of living is higher than the US, but then the economy is much better here. Pork is very cheap - almost free. Chicken is next cheapest. For example, 3 prime Boneless Rib Steaks at Costco (A Big Box Warehouse style retailer), albeit an inch thick and huuuge, cost about $30.00 - 10 bucks each. A giant pork roast is only $18.00. 7 Giant Chicken Breasts cost $20.00, 4 big pork tenderloins cost $22.00. Fish, especially wild like Coho Salmon are insanely pricey - about $30.00 for a filet. A Turkey breast roast is about $20.00.

18 eggs, free run organic, are $6.00. Oats - not sure. I buy certified uncontaminated gluten free oats for about $6.00 per bag, which lasts a good month.

Sorry for my delayed responses guys, I really try to read everything and don't like to half ass things. I want to give each reply (to all threads) my full attention, i'm picky like that.
