My dh and I went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner tonight, and, as usual, we ordered their most excellent tortilla soup. It comes in a bowl with a handle, like a very large round coffee mug.
When I got down near the bottom of my bowl, I automatically picked up the bowl by the handle and angled it so I could get the last of the soup with my spoon. Upon doing this, I wondered if this was proper.
Is it all right to pick up a soup bowl by the handle to get the last of the soup? I didn't bring it to my mouth and drink it (like I really wanted to!). I used my spoon. Anyone know what the etiquette on this is?
