June 2009: Chinese Food and Chopsticks

Since going to Benihanas back in January with the boys, anytime we eat Chinese food they want to use chopsticks. I wish that I knew how to make those nifty kid ones they have there. Being undeterred they pressed on in trying to use regular ones to eat their meal. I have to say I was rather impressed with Owen (here he is with his American President placemat as mentioned in my previous post "George Washington, John Adams..." . I was worried Tate was going to stab himself since he had to have his own pair, "Mommy I do it.", but he did fine too. Eyan realized that eatting with chopsticks was rather slow, so he kept with a fork. His favorite part was the fortune cookie. Their Dad would be proud of his Chinese children:-)

P.S. After this meal, I looked up how to make kid friendly chopsticks. Here is the link.


  1. Owen looks like he's got the hang of it! So fun!

  2. The use of chopsticks has been a part of Chinese food culture. There are some taboos that you must pay great attention to, or you may make mistakes and be laughed at.
