.....and what decadent dessert would you prefer before Dinner?

Dessert before dinner – you betcha -
there are just some days when I could eat dessert all day long :)
I can remember back, to being very young and sitting at the dinner table, listening to my Mum say – Dessert after everything on your plate is gone – to me as a child, that was a big request and the dinner plate even bigger. I can remember thinking – “When I am all grown up, I am going to eat my dessert first, before I eat dinner”.

A few moments ago, I just finished a most delicious piece of lemon meringue pie with a glass of ice cold milk and wee bit later we were sitting down to a nice bowl of home made chicken soup and rolls. YUMMY

When a young chef was asked the question about dessert before dinner, she replied with the most intellectual response - "life is only sweet if you eat your pie first!"

In a home where the parents thought Grandma & Grandpa were setting a bad example for eating dessert before dinner; Grandma n Grandpa said, “At our age, We may not make it to dinner, so we're going to enjoy it while we can.”  J

Cheers and have a nice day - Lilly :)
