Coworker I think I may like, and who may or may not kinda like me, did something today that I'm trying to figure out whether it was flirty or innocuous. Level-5 beanplating below the fold.

I've known her for about two months. She was sitting in our break area eating a meal she had brought from home. (Alas, we work slightly different shifts and our breaks/lunches are staggered so I never get to have break/lunches with her). I was coming back from my break and still had a couple minutes left. I sat down across from her and asked her what she was eating.
She said it was a new recipe she just made, would I like a bite? Sure, I said. So she cut me off a piece with the spoon she was eating with (actual brought-from-home silverware), scooped it in said spoon, and handed to me.
I think if the roles were reversed, I'd have to be pretty damn comfortable with a person to let them eat off my spoon. So I was kinda...flattered? Perhaps pointlessly?...that she did that.
So I'm curious what the consensus is on probably flirty/probably not flirty her gesture was.
FWIW, I'm just getting over a cold, which sort of gave me an out. I said, "Well, I'm just getting over a cold, so..." and I dumped the spoon's content into my mouth without touching the spoony part. It was aiight.
