Chopsticks: Easier Than They Look

All it takes is a rubber band at the top, and even a four-year-old can swing a pair. Sorta. Until he decides it’s easier to just eat with his hands…

(Note that he’s attacking a bowl of plain noodles, while next to him is an apparently not-at-all-tempting bowl of delicious homemade Chicken Lo Mein, the recipe for which will be coming your way tomorrow.)

Oh, and a big fat aside: I submitted the introduction to Parents Need to Eat Too to my editor today. The first draft is 100%, completely, irrefutably, d-o-n-e done! Let me tell you, writing a cookbook is a buttload of work. Revisions will be a piece of cake compared to the last year, I hope.

    Debbie, I think we are leading sort of parallel lives here. My kids just tried chopsticks a couple weeks ago. My husband just wandered into the kitchen and brought them out at dinner time, thinking they'd be a novelty. And they were. The boys scarfed down a sweet and sour chicken with veggies and rice and all. But I love this tip about the rubber band around the top! Thanks! Go Harry!

    Isn't that a neat trick, Carrie? I can't remember anymore where I learned it, but whoever first thought of it is a genius. (I probably could've used a rubber band of my own when I was first learning!)
