Bread and Butter, a few doâ€™s and dontâ€™s:
- Do take enough butter for your entire piece of bread .
- Donâ€™t keep taking more butter from the communal butter dish with each bite.
- Donâ€™t butter the entire piece of bread- just enough for your current bite.
- Lastly, bread should be only be torn into three pieces.
Good, succinct adviceâ€¦keep it coming.

I was always under the impression that bread should be broken into bite-size pieces and each piece buttered so you are not chewing off hunks of bread. Thus having more than 3 pieces.
I hear the same thing. The intial break is always three. Everything becomes more manageable from there. You can take one of your thirds and break away a smaller bite if necessary but what you want to avoid is the plate with 6 mini bite size pieces. Always butter the piece you are going to eat, not all the pieces at once.
I think there was a conversation between Robert Redford and Barbra Striesand about this in “The Way We Were.” (Okay…how gay was it for me to remember that?)
