Thursday nights utensil of choice was the SPOON.

I can’t think of any food that is eaten with a spoon that I don’t like.  That is pretty easy because the only food I don’t like is olives.

Tomato soup with baked potato chunks thrown in, a grilled cheese avocado sandwich and of course a pear.

Have I ever told you I like to eat on the floor when I am at home.  It is weird but it lowers the chances of me spilling on myself.  This way the table is right next to my face and I only have to move it two inches to my mouth…..somehow I still spilled soup on my scarf.

Yes, we are the couple that watches netflix while we eat.

White socks with black floods are the latest fashion trend, I promise.

I think I got too hot from eating soup so I had to cool off by eating some vanilla ice cream.  At least I moved up to the couch for this course.

And wood paneling and swamp coolers are the latest fad in home design.

What is your favorite thing in the world to eat with a spoon?  No saying ice-cream/fro-yo because that one is a given!

-CEREAL, yogurt, oatmeal and soup:)

Where is your favorite place to eat at home? Do you watch TV while you eat or are you a good person and follow the rule of not watching tv and eating?

-At the coffee table while sitting on the floor.  We never have time to catch up on our shows and it doesn’t get better than your man, your favorite foods and your favorite tv show all at the same time.

Peanut butter!!!! :)

I used to sit in front of the TV like that, but now instead of a coffee table, we have a huge ottoman so I can't put my feet under it! It just doesn't work for me! So now, I sit at the table and eat like a normal person. If the Husband isn't home, I'll read blogs while I eat!

Oatmeal with craisins and nuts. (ate while driving to work this morning as a matter of fact!)

I like to sit on the couch in front of the tv but we're trying to get in the habit of sitting at our table. Regardles, we like to watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy while eating dinner. Yes we're 70.

I am SUCH a floor person. I luuurve my living room carpet, and the floor basically anywhere.

My favorite foods to eat with a spoon would have to be oatmeal, smoothies in a bowl (xanthan gum:), sooooup, and any mixture of grain mixed with applesauce and raisins (or choco chips)

One of my new years resolu….. um… GOALS was to have dinner at the dining room table with my two sons. My husband works in the evenings, so the meals were often just fix something (not even always healthy) for my 4 year old, and then wait until I am starving to eat something, and then my youngest (9months) gets fed whenever he starts fussing. And all that definitely happened in the living room, with Barney or Thomas the Tank Engine on the TV (also Netflix in our house!).

So– this week, the boys and I ate at the dining room table together on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday! Last night we were at my parents, celebrating my mom's birthday, so that doesn't count. I can't even tell you how awesome it has been. On Monday, after dinner, Stephen (my 4 year old) and I played a game at the table. On Tuesday, we made a card for my mom. On Wednesday, we made her cake. Doing this has decreased our TV time by SO much — and not just during the eating times. It has led to other family/together fun!! I am so completely psyched about it!!

AND…..
Spoon…. Graham crackers with milk (especially when they get mushy!!), and cream of wheat loaded with brown sugar!

My husband and I like to be uber class and eat dinner on TV trays. How else will I watch "Wheel of Fortune"?

Favorite thing with a spoon … I really like soup but that's so boring. So pudding. Banana pudding!

Reply

Hmmm…was expecting a bit of something different with the post title! Best spoonage, though, comes with oatmeal– a close second is ice cream or fro-yo, but I'm more picky about those :)

I've been reading your blog a couple weeks now and absolutely love it! Keep up the hard work!

Reply

I eat on the couch in front of the TV or at my computer. My apartment is small (hellooo, NYC), so the TV can't really be avoided!

I like spoons for cereal, greek yogurt, oatmeal. But I guess it would be fairly challenging to eat any of those with a fork. So I got nothin' :)

Love the paneling we have it too. So Brady Bunch!!!

I love to eat pudding cups with a spoon and of course finish up the cup with my favorite spoon the tonge to lick the rest up.
Delish.

grilled cheese avocado sandwich…. YUM!!

I'm so glad wood panelling is in style because apparently it'll cost us over a grand to get rid of it in our guest room. Now guests are treated to a stay at "camp" when they come over.

I always eat at the coffee table and watch tv with my husband. We don't have a kitchen table and the dining room seems awkward and formal for that.

Reply

We almost always eat at the couch watching TV…it is just easier that way! Our kitchen table almost never gets used for eating on!

Grill Chesse with homemade creamy tomato basil.

Chocolate mousse is my favorite thing to eat with a spoon. And Bud and I always eat on the floor at the coffee table with the TV on. I don't have a kitchen table! And even when I did, we still ate at the coffee table.

Love to eat a toasted baguette spread with avocado, chopped tomato, garlic powder, S&P, and some cheese! Pop it under the broiler til you can't wait anymore to eat it. Yummy!

the Huz and I ALWAYS eat in front of the TV. We don't get around to dinner until 8 or so and are too tired to be civilized!

I like to eat soup with a spoon, ice cream and yogurt. We had a curried veg soup the other day that was the bombdiggity- highly recomend!

I always spill on myself while eating too, no matter how I try to be tidy.. I'm a MESS!

soup, chili, oatmeal, sundaes, blizzards.

We watch a movie and eat on date nights, but during the week we try not to.

Spoons? Nah, what are hands for? :P

I usually sit on the floor too! And I usually DO watch tv when eating, even though I know you aren't supposed to…! Who cares if Criminal Minds or a Friends rerun is on! :D

Reply

I always sit on the floor to eat, I feel so weird hunched over our coffe table so I attempt to make it more eye-level, and it has certainly reduced the spillage. We will eat while watching tv which I know they swear not to, but I just don't care, my 30 minutes for dinner is about all the tv I get during the day.

Reply

We sit in the living room and eat and watch our shows. We could sit at the breakfast nook table and still see the tv like civalized people, but we would rather be slouches. :)

Def SOUP! My kids even love when I make soup, such a great meal!! I"ve been eating more avocados because of you too. :)

We eat in front of the TV on Fridays with our pizza!! Other wise it's at the table as a family, with or without dad.

Reply

Fave thing to eat with a spoon has got to be chili or homemade vegetable soup! I always eat in front of the TV on the couch and I am not ashamed to say and eat breakfast in bed more days a week than not.

I may have to steal that grilled cheese and avocado sandwich idea for my lunch today!

Reply

ice cream & soup & more ice cream!
At home, we usually eat as a family at the table.
That grilled avocado looks SO yummy!

There are so many delicious things to eat with a spoon, it's hard to pick a favorite! And I always eat on my couch when I'm at home…it's a bad habit, but sooo comfy!

I also wanted to say that you are incredibly inspiring. And beautiful!

Reply

I tend to enjoying spooning foods straight out of their containers, like PB and frosting! And of course you can't forget cereal!

We eat on the kitchen table…sometimes. If there's a really good show and our dinner isn't too messy we eat on the living room floor.

CHILI!!!!!! With loads of peppers and onions and big, fat, chunky tomatoes.

You don't like olives??? Weirdo! lol

I am secretly your blonde, separated-at-birth twin, lol. Not only do I sit on the floor to eat, but we also watch netflix for supper! Hilarious :)
My favorite things to eat with a spoon are cereal, pb and apple sauce!

A grilled cheese avocado sandwich sounds SO GOOD!! I love to eat oatmeal or mashed potatoes with a spoon! Or mashed sweet potatoes! Those are so good! We have never really watched tv while eating, only during special times like the super bowl!

Reply

I eat at the kitchen table … but only because I am a role model for all the little people in the house. If it were just me, I would totally eat in the TV room.

BTW, if that a pile of vitamins on your table?

Reply

The only food I don't like is cucumber. I don't know why, and I wish I did like it. I have no beef with pickles after all.

My favorite food to eat with a spoon is oatmeal! I look forward to it every morning.

Reply

I love soup and grilled cheese just makes it so much better. I like grilled tuna as well with pickles and cheese. Other things to eat with a spoon include cereal, cottage cheese and pears, yogurt, mashed potatoes, and pudding.
We don't watch while we eat but that's because we have kids. I need to hear about their day! Before we had kids we almost always had the TV on during dinner. But that was way before Netflixs!

Reply

I generally sit on the couch and watch an episode or two of the following: Millionaire Matchmaker, My Strange Addiction, Intervention, Bridalplasty (OH MY GOODNESS WORST SHOW EVER), or Colbert Report. I'm so classy. Oh, and generally I'm in sweatpants, since I'll change as soon as I get home.

So glad I'm not the only one with white socks black bottoms

Reply

oats, cereal, smoothies :), cottage cheese, yogurt…the list goes on. everything is better with a spoon and a bowl!

my favorite place to eat is sitting in my big mushroom chair, whilst browsing blogs. :)

Reply

I eat on the couch with my plate sitting on the arm of the couch. It works perfect for a table. Or I sit in the floor and lean against the couch with my knees bent, and set my plate between my knees and chest. It catches all of the food that I somehow miss getting in my mouth. : ) Pathetic..I know.

Reply

Grilled cheese with avocado is my absolute favorite! I may have to try your eating on the floor method as I tend to always make a mess. :) It could be because we too watch TV while we eat. It's the ideal time to unwind.

Reply

Mmmm – baked potato chunks in your soup! We eat dinner in front of the TV often. Rules were made to be broken! I LOVE bowls and spoons. I rarely use plates. I'd have to say oatmeal is #1. And I love to make black bean and rice bowls with avocado, salsa, etc. All mushed up. Sometimes I don't use a spoon and just use tortilla chips to scoop! Happy Friday friend! xo

Reply

We eat at the kitchen table, which has a clear view of the TV. I think we picked the model for our house for that very reason. I do still eat on the couch once in awhile.

Reply

Oh I LOVE grilled cheese with avacado. I am with you, cereal is #1! Cereal is my favorite thing to eat with a spoon. I could eat it all day

Reply

Dinner looks AMAZING! I love tomato/basil soup with grilled cheese – haven't tried the grilled cheese with avocado before, but you can bet your butt I will be trying it this weekend!! I also LOVE Deer Park Turkey Chili – you should try it – it's delicious!

My hubs and I eat over the coffee table, as it doubles as a dining room table :-) We live in a bedroom condo – have to make due, ha!

Have a great weekend!

fiance and i eat on the floor while watching netflix too! i actually had grilled cheese and tomato soup the other day too! again… TWINS! :)

Cereal is the most traditional thing I eat with a spoon. I typically like to eat most meals in a bowl with a spoon but my husband thinks it is wierd to cut up all your meat and combine everything in a bowl at every meal. So unless he's not home usually I use a fork.

Reply

The boyfriend and I also watch Netflix while we eat! We are both so busy, so being able to have dinner and a flick every once in awhile is really nice.

Reply

Definitely soup, yogurt and fruit cups :) We eat on TV trays in the living room in front of the TV…classy!!

Reply

Oatmeal for sure!

Since we're going raw this month we're not eating dinner with the kids at the table like we normally do.

Since our couch is filled up with laundry that I've been neglecting for the past two weeks we can't sit there either. So we've been sharing a big chair and eating while watching Netflix! It's cozy and I sorta love it!

Reply

I like spoons too…I eat everything I can w/ a spoon!

We have a weird arrangement at dinner time (if my hubby happens to be home at a reasonable time and we can eat together): our son has already eaten dinner (he can't wait that late to eat) but begs like a puppy so we set him up in front of Thomas the Train with some milk (his favorite beverage EVER) so he won't bother us. :) So we enjoy Thomas in the background while we eat…good times. :)

we watch netflix while we eat too.

Fav thing to eat with a spoon…hmmm…probably cinnamon toast crunch cereal-yum.
I eat at the table for meals. Gotta set a good example for the younger set in my family =) However after they are in bed, any other edible goodies are eaten on the couch and partaken of with my hubby =)
I love all your pics on your blog, J! =)

Peanut butter with chocolate chips thrown in is probably top on my list, quickly followed by yogurt and cereal :) At home I'll eat while reading blogs, looking at magazines, at the table with my family if someones around, watching a show, etc. I like to think I'm good at multi-tasking…

Reply

Love those photos ~ only you could look so beautiful with a mouth full of spoon ;)

I actually eat almost everything with a spoon! I have a certain teaspoon I'm rather attached to and it annoys me when there's a certain food I can't manage to eat with it (rice noodles for example).

I am naughty and always eat at my desk reading blogs…which means that my poor laptop is also covered in food!

In my apartment I don't even have a kitchen table, or anything to eat on really. So I eat on the couch. And we always eat while watching tv. No rules here! Just good food!

I'm actually really good about not eating and watching tv! I always feel like I have to sit down at the table and eat!

I always, always, always eat my smoothies with a spoon. It doesn't feel like food if you have to drink it! Steve always tries to eat in front of the TV, especially if hockey is on. I don't complain unless I don't like the teams that are playing, ha.

I ALWAYS eat in front of the TV bad habit but it's when we catch up on our shows too!

This is a recent conversation I had with a friend…

"Eating soup made me hot" – me
"You were hot before you even before you picked up the spoon" -friend

hahaha, that still cracks me up to this day. Clever play on words.

I eat at the bar in my kitchen a lot, that or while running out the door. Its one of the reasons I love sandwiches so much. portable food.

Favorite thing to eat with a spoon that isn't ice cream. Does spake count? It's cake you eat with a spoon, either because you messed up baking it or its one of those molten cakes. My sister and I came up with that term a few years back haha.

I love eating on the couch while watching Netflix. It is my favorite. A few times this week I sat at my little kitchen table and pulled my computer over while eating. I can never seem to just eat without doing another activity at the same time.

Ice cream doesn't count … no fair! I love chicken noodle soup and tomato basil soup!! YUM!

We try to eat at the dinner table every night. Sometimes, we give in to the tv though!

As a funny t-shirt once said- spooning leads to forking ;)
I eat at a table as I find it hard to eat off my lap (more spillage for me)- even with table mats and a teapot! But I also watch TV at the same time.
Food to eat with a spoon? I would say porridge, then some kind of yoghurt with granola topping and fruit, then soup!

Grapefruit!
And yes – TV with any meal, because it feels like I am multi-tasking instead of wasting time :)

I rarely watch TV but I'm not home much and if I am, I'm blogging or sometimes working out but usually blogging:)

definitely cereal is one of my favorite things to eat with a spoon. That was a staple in college.

When we're rushed, we tend to just eat standing at the counter, but when we have time, definitely on the couch watching netflix/hulu. It's the best!

My man just made fun of me last night for doing EXACTLY what you demonstrate so stylishly in your pictures: Eating dinner on the floor, using the coffee table as a spill-catcher.

And I always always manage to spill on myself too! Ugh! This is why me + white clothing = a disaster every. single. time.

And cereal is probably the best food known to man, so I will have to go with that. And I like really big spoons. Like, soup spoons. To be used with everything.

First off… I absolutely love your blog. I look forward to reading it every day!
I found the cutest table at the DI when I was engaged. I got all handy and cleaned it, sanded it, and painted it black to match our other furniture. My husband and I have been married for over 6 months and still haven't had a meal sitting at the table. Instead, we use our classy TV trays while sitting on the couch. However, we don't have Netflix or cable, so we're making our way through various shows that my husband orders off eBay. So far we've made it through Lost, Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls, The OC and now we're on Gossip Girl. And I'm not sure if it's good or bad, but it hasn't been me that has picked the shows we watch, it's been my husband! He loves teen dramas!

Reply

Ha ha! We do that too! We often eat after the kids go to bed. Watching a movie, sitting on the floor, at the coffee table. Makes us feel young again ;-)

Favorite spoon food… peanut butter dipped into semisweet chocolate chips.

Oh, and glad to know I am fashionable! Black floods w/ white socks… all the time!

You are absolutely RIGHT about makeup being overrated. You are naturally beautiful anyways…you don't even need it. I don't eat while I watch TV, but I always seem to have my laptop open looking at blogs…bad habit? probably. I love oatmeal with a spoon for sure!

My favorite food to eat with a spoon is definitely cereal. I love cereal, but not the healthy stuff!!

Most of the time we eat at our coffee table too! Maybe once per week we sit at the table.
