At the fancy restaurant, I was struck by how many of the dessert options were really two desserts.
Wouldn't a slice of cherry pie be totally delicious? (It was -- I got a taste -- actually I got two tastes because the two people who shared the dessert couldn't eat it all.) Do you really need a bowl of ice cream too? Of course, maybe then they couldn't charge $9.
My husband ordered the banana confection and gave me a taste. I wished I could have tasted just the banana bread pudding, minus the chocolate sauce, or maybe just the pistachio short bread. Too many ingredients for me.
OK, so I'm just a sour cherry. But if restaurants would offer small desserts with just one delicious flavor, I would probably order more of them. As it is, I only watch.
