That's what I meant :)  And is why I always ask first, or ask for a  
spoon before getting a full order. Celia >>>

Thank you. I guess it had never occurred to me to ask for a "taster  
spoon" at a restaurant, but I'll have to keep this in mind. Either  
when I'm trying something new, or even for my wife who is very  
sensitive to spicy foods.  There have been times when a sauce has  
been too hot for her, when previously the same sauce had been okay.   
Of course the spiciness of something in a spoon will sometimes differ  
from when it is eaten with something else, but usually things are  
hotter when eaten alone, so at least the error is in the right
