I've decided to make Thursdays my "Question of the Week" day because I always have questions and am always interested in people's answers.
This Week's Question: What is your definition of dessert?
For my sister, it usually means something chocolate. For me, usually really great fresh fruit with cream OR an after dinner drink.
However, my husband came home with a poppy seed bread that had a plum filling. It wasn't even sweet. He had the nerve to declare this non-sweet, help your bowels move bread, a dessert.
I was amazed. I was amazed because it was the first time I asked him to pick up a dessert (usually I'm telling him to put something back) and he rocks at picking out desserts. He has a sweet tooth and he has his own ritual with dessert that always includes consuming whatever with a glass of milk.
For the record, my favorite dessert was consumed while out to dinner in London. Fresh berries, small shortcake and clotted cream (first time I ever had clotted cream). Although my sister made this amazing cake for Christmas this year that my husband reminded me of the other night. It had like 10 thin layers and I remember her saying it was time consuming.
So, what's your definition of dessert?
