Eating tortilla chips with a fork

Anthony rarely likes eating food with his hands.  He prefers utensils.

There's nothing wrong with that.  But there are moments watching him eat where I see foods eaten with a utensil I've never seen consumed that way.

We ate lunch at El Taco Tote on Wilmot on Monday.  He asked me to get him some tortilla chips while he got salsa from the salsa bar.

Then, before digging into his enchiladas he ate his chips.  With a fork.

The first step was picking up a chip.  Sometimes it took numerous tries.  Then, while carefully balancing the chip on the fork he dunked it into some salsa and into his mouth it would go.

He was remarkably good at it.  Very little spilling.

Here's how its done:
Step one:  Anthony picks up a chip with his fork.

Step two:  While balancing the chip, it gets a salsa bath.
Its a talent worthy of America's Got Talent.
