Take your napkin and place it on the bowl covering all of it.

    As a handicapped person with little balance and who uses a cane I need one handed ideas! This is good except trying to carry liquid might not be as easy as planned. One thing I recently discovered was to use a hard plastic adult "sippy cup"--you know the kind you probably already have with a screw on lid and a big straw; the problem with that is that the liquid can get past the straw and scald you or spill. I found that for most of these cups a SOUR CREAM container lid fits perfectly and altho there can be some leakage on the sides it is easily fixed by wrapping a paper towel or tea towel around if needed; you can even carry fresh hot beverages in this from room to room and use a spoon or replace the lid with the straw lid if wanted.
