    Do you eat the following foods with a fork or a spoon?

    Cottage/Shepherds Pie
    Pot Noodle/Instant Noodles/Ramen Noodles
    Mashed Potato

    I use a fork for all of them (except curry as I don't touch the stuff) but I know a lot of people that say it feels weird to eat dessert with a fork and dinner with a spoon.

    Are you the kind of person that uses a specific utensil for each thing you eat or do you just grab whatever is closest?

    Most of the time I'll use a fork, I would make a point of getting a fork and not grabbing whatever was there.

    Rebeccaaa yellow 4!

    I eat them all with a fork, bar:

    Rice - either
    Cake - either
    Stew - both
    Curry - both

    Most of the time I'll take a fork, spoon, and knife with me to the table. But obviously end up only actually using 1 or 2 of them.

    ETA: I want Chaos to reply to this thread.

    AeonFlux I am the edge!

    I use forks for all of them, with the exceptions of stew and ramen noodles. For stew I use a spoon, and for ramen noodles I use chopsticks. I will also sometimes eat my rice with chopsticks.

    I do usually use specific utensils for specific foods and only deviate if I haven't done the dishes for a while and don't have any other choice.

    I eat a for for all of them expect Stew, I use a spoon for that. When I eat I usually use a fork most of the time, except when something is a form of liquid, then I usually use a spoon.
