Eat Dessert First

My S-I-L, Ann, has a saying that I have always enjoyed: "Life is short. Eat dessert first." Needless to say, Ann is one of my favorite people on earth. Needless to say, she is an excellent dessert maker. We should probably have followed her advice when we went to the CIA for lunch.

By the time we had finished off temptations, salad or appetizer and main course, plus bites off each other's plates, we were too full to enjoy one of these dessert samplers by ourselves - our choice was to split it or burst like ripe melons.

Left to right, bite-sized portions of chocolate mousse in a crisp cookie cup, strawberry shortcake with piped whipped cream, caramel nut bar with fudgey bottom, strawberry fro yo in a light-as-thistledown cookie cone, creme fraiche panna cotta, and lemon pastry with a blueberry and a dab of vanilla whipped cream. Shared amongst us four, it was just enough to save us from popping whilst still giving us each a taste of all those flavors.

But, next time, I'm eating dessert first.
