    There is a little bit of milk or soup left in your bowl, will you pick it up and drink it?

    I would, and I do.  Some think I'm a scrounge and unmannerly when I do this.  Only in my own home of course!

    For soup I would pick it up and drink it at home only.  I don't have milk with my cereal, so I couldn't do it with that.

    Definitely pick it up and drink from the bowl at home. But out in public, I would spoon all that I could before giving it a rest!

    Any place except home I would use my spoon cuz I'm pretty adept at cornering those last drops of milk or soup. I can't rule out drinking from a bowl at home but I don't know when I last did that. Thanks for reminding me of that lost art.

    At home, sure I would pick up the bowl and drink what's left. Why waste food/milk? In public it's a different story. It's not polite to do so in public. smile

    Absolutely, I've been know to lick the bowl like a dog if it's that tasty! In the privacy of my own home of course!

    At home, anything goes to get that last bite, but in public I would use a spoon.  It is likely astonishing the things we do at home when no one is looking!

    I use a spoon.  I remember telling my kids NOT to pick it up and drink it. However,  My grown daughter came for lunch the other day and she drank the rest of her soup!  Right or wrong, who knows, I'll have to google the etiquette side of it smile   Two of my soup bowls have handles, so maybe it's okay?  Good question!  I'm having soup for lunch today, so I'll ponder. smile

    No I always manage to get every drop out anyway. That's what your bread is for.

    Yeah at home and when I am out ask for a cup of soup then you can drink it. Normally I am not known to eat much.

    I would pick it up and drink it (soup,cereal). If I am in public, I will most likely try to use a spoon and get the rest or just leave it. It can be really time consuming and frustrating to get that little bit of milk or soup left.

    not at home only but outside home too, i'll do the same & everybody shud do the same.... why to waste food.even a bit ?...every grain of food & every drop of milk/water is precious dear....ask the value of food grain from people of Somalia & such other countries where people are starving for the lack of food and other aminities...we shud be always thankfull to the Almighty for he has blessed us with bountyfull of food & other things for our livelyhood...and we must show Him our respect by respecting these the bounties He has blessed with only ...!

    I agree that it is wasteful not to, and it would frustrate me not to be able to finish a bowl of something in public.  But at home, I will warn my husband first that I'm going to do this in case he is shocked by my unladylike behaviour!  Although I think he's given up on me being ladylike by now.  I need three hours notice to get into ladylike mode.
