SPAGHETTI

Put 2 or 3 strands of spaghetti noodle on your fork.  One of the keys to eating spaghetti without getting it all over your chin, neck and clothes is to eat small bites. 

Pick up your spoon and with the noodles still on your fork, twirl the fork around and around on the spoon until the pasta surrounds the fork.  If you don't have a spoon, you can use the edge of the plate
