A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH GRANDPA

PLAYGIRL'S WITCHES BREW!

I started making this Caldo de Res (beef soup) with rice early this morning.

I have this problem with my angel, and I just don't know how to handle it without hurting his feelings. Grandpa has terrible table manners. He insists on using a spoon instead of a fork for everything he eats, and the way he grabs his spoon, one would think he was grabbing a shovel.

In a little while, we'll be sitting at the table to eat, and I know exactly what's going to happen. We will start a conversation and I will be able to see each little piece of carrot, squash, celery, etc., in his mouth because he chews and talks with his mouth wide open!

He slurps everything down, and many times I see little morsels of food sliding out the sides of his mouth. Whenever he's talking to me, I make it a point to look down at my plate because to see him, grosses me out.

It's the only problem I have, when it comes to this precious old man, but it's very annoying. I just don't know how to go about telling him that he eats like a pig. I suppose I'll have to undergo a total change of attitude about his annoying table manners because I don't want to ever break his little heart.

Do any of you have a friend or loved one with bad table manners? If so, have you just let it go, or done something about it?

I'm proudly patting myself on the back! I AM a fantastic cook, thanks to the secrets my mom taught me, and thanks to my love of cooking. heh heh

This is a pic of the soup I made:
