Things we love, things we like and things that ruffle our feathers.

Which fork is for the salad?

When I was younger and we'd attend fancy restaurants, I relied on my dad to help me make sense of everything, like the menu and the silverware. As soon as we left, I'd forget everything (because I made no effort to remember) and he'd have to go through the entire spiel again.

If my dad wasn't there, I felt like Vivian in Pretty Woman. Well, except for the whole hooker thing, of course. But in the film, she enlists the concierge at a hotel to help her make sense of the silverware at nice restaurants. But when she goes to an  upscale restaurant, the finger foods present a new problem because how do you know which are finger foods and for which you use silverware?

Eventually, I learned. Otherwise, I'd just keep making people help me figure out how to order and eat food. If I found this amazing graphic when I was in high school, I would've become a dining pro in no time. This even taught me about how to make a toast properly.

Why not break out the good dinnerware that your mom keeps stashed in the cupboard and do some fancy place settings for holiday dinners this year?
