    Default When I was 9...

    ....would I have complained about smelliness if I had woken up to the
    scent of cooked shallots? Hard telling because it would never have
    occurred to my mother to make pan seared bottom round steak with
    shallots at 6 o'clock in the morning. It sure was delicious.
    Still can't eat a steak Euro style. My Borg appliance doesn't permit
    that.

    Yeah, I like them too, even first thing in the morning, but you are
    someone who can hardly fathom the concept of too much cooked shallot/
    garlic/onion.

    I had 6 pounds of onions in the crock pot all night. I'll never be
    able to smell onions again.

    You hold the fork in your left hand and the knife in your right. My
    friend Diana, who is from England, met her son's girlfriend for the
    first time, and she was disappointed that this girl ate American style.
    When they were alone, she told her son to find someone else. Needless
    to say, her son married this girl and they now have a 4 year old son.

    Oh, okay. If he hadn't said "eat a steak" and just "eat Euro style" I
    would have understood. I thought there might be more to eating a
    steak Euro style other than keeping the fork in your left hand and
    using the knife as a pusher.

    I just found out that I eat steak Euro style. So what is eating steak
    American style? Fork in right hand? Wouldn't the preference for
    eating one of these styles depend upon whether you were right or left
    handed?

    Many Americans hold the fork in the left, cut with the right, then
    transfer the fork the the right. I don't, and haven't for decades,
    but that's the way I did it when I was a kid because that was just the
    way it was done here. People cut multiple pieces, then ate them with
    the fork in the right hand.

    Eating steak American style is when you eat with your right hand, you
    switch hands to cut your steak with your right hand holding the knife,
    then switch back to eat to the fork in your right hand to continue
    eating. If you are left handed then the sequence is opposite.

    Since I'm male and oblivious I've never noticed whether or not people do
    this. It would not catch my attention. I do not switch the fork from
    one hand to the other.

    But when eating soba or udon in a soup, I will switch the spoon from
    my right hand to my left hand, after using chopsticks with my left
    hand. (I'm left handed.)

    all these years. How continental and stuff.
