This past weekend we had a family get-together where we celebrated the Lunar New Year with a Chinese takeout feast. We had two sets of kids' chopsticks (the kind that are joined at the top to make it easier for kids to use them) but with three little kids at dinner there was trouble brewing. Then, my brilliant sister shared this easy trick using takeout chopsticks - its so quick and simple I wish I had known it years ago! Now, this might be one of those things that everyone else in the world knew about besides me, but just in case its not I thought I'd share the how-to here.
Step 1: All you need to make this work are two things: a pair of wooden takeout chopsticks with their paper wrapper and a rubber band or hair elastic.
Step 2: Separate the chopsticks.
Step 3: Fold the paper wrapper in half horizontally (the long way).
Step 4: Roll up the paper wrapper into a thick little tube.
Step 5: Stick the rolled up wrapper between the chopsticks about two inches from the top and then wrap the rubber band around both chopsticks above the roll.
Step 6: Eat up all that yummy Chinese food like a boss!
