There's an expression I heard once that goes something like this:
"Live life to the fullest. Eat dessert first."
Now usually, I skip dessert all together because of constant battling life-long weight problems.
Last week we had special guests, our son and his lovely wife, visiting from out-of-state.
The final nice meal I worked hard to make needed to end with a dessert, a grand finale, so to speak.
One of my "boy's" favorite desserts is brownies. (He's obviously no longer a boy in age but, to me, he'll always be "my boy." Call me a mom who doesn't like to let go. ha!)
He also loves ice cream but has trouble digesting it due to lactose intolerance.
So luckily, I found some delicious lactose-free vanilla ice cream in the supermarket. Had to hunt a bit for it but eventually found it.
I baked a pan of homemade fudgy brownies.
The dessert for all the guests consisted of a brownie topped with ice-cream. Then, I added a drizzle of chocolate syrup, a squirt of cream from a can and a few pecan halves.
Well, as simple as this dessert was, all the guests raved about it. They thought it looked and tasted gourmet!
Now the guests, brownies and ice cream are all gone.
From this point on, eating dessert first will be just a dream.
After this life ends, hopefully, I'll go to heaven.
There, dessert will be consumed anytime one wants it, without adding one morsel of fat!
And if a person wants seconds, all she has to do is ask! Woo hoo!
WHAT IS YOUR ABSOLUTE FAVORITE DESSERT?
