“SMALL POINTS OF TABLE ETIQUETTE”

“ Let us mention a few things concerning the eating of which there is sometimes doubt.  A cream-cake and anything of similar nature should be eaten with knife and fork, never bitten.  Asparagus- which should always be served on bread or toast so as not to absorb superfluous moisture – may be taken from the finger and thumb; if it is fit to be set before you the whole of it may be eaten.  Pastry should be broken and eaten with a fork, never cut with a knife.  Raw oysters should be eaten with a fork, also fish.  Peas and beans, as we all know require the fork only; however food that can not be held with a fork should be eaten with a spoon.  Potatoes, if mashed, mashed with a fork.  Green corn should be eaten from the cob; but it must be held with a single hand.”

OK, boys and girls, I am in deep etiquette trouble, only last night I did not serve asparagus on bread or toast.  Then, to top it off, I cut my asparagus spear with a fork!  Absolutely shocking….  I’ll hardly even mention that my whole family has been known to eat corn-on-the-cob with BOTH hands.  Change could be in the wind!
