#54: Your favourite dessert is served

#54: It makes my day when………. Your favourite dessert is served
Anyone else out there have a strong sweet tooth? I certainly do, so dessert is often my favourite time of the meal & in my younger days I may have been known to rebel at the Sizzler buffet and go straight for the soft serve with sprinkles. (Bad Ass I know)
But this moment comes when you are either out at a friend’s house for a dinner party, at a fancy catered function or someone else has offered to bring dessert to your house for dinner. Therefore the choice of what will be served is out of your control and if they serve fruit cake (I mean really why spoil a cake by putting fruit in it), anything banana flavoured or a baked cheesecake, you will be utterly disappointed.
The tension builds as the main meal plates are taken away, the call for “Tea or Coffee” is raised and you know the unveiling cannot be far away. You stomach starts to turn in anticipation and you hope that your strategy to resist seconds of the roast lamb will pay off when one of your fave desserts is made available.
Then the hairs on the back of your neck stand up as the server slowly turns in your direction to unveil……………………………………………………Lemon Meringue Pie!!!!! Wohooooo!!!!!! One of your favourite desserts has appeared and it looks so damn good.
I mean you also would have been happy with anything Chocolate but the more obscure your favourite dessert is, the more excitement it brings.
So relieved you held back on main course and although you can sense of tummy ache coming on following the second slice, every mouthful makes it is so worth it!
Happy eating!

  1. I want lemon meringue pie now! It's my fave too... Yum!

  2. I know it's so good but I don't think anyone will top Aunty Lyn's. I really need to get a copy and perfect that recipe.
