I don't bake, make, or whip up desserts very often. I don't remember having an abundance of sweets for each meal. There was definitely dessert on birthdays and for holidays, but not every night after supper. Instead, I remember having a slice of watermelon or a bowl of ice cream.
At this point in our lives, making desserts for the two of us seems pointless. First, we like different kinds of desserts. I like frozen and light treats; Hubs likes Coconut Cream or Lemon Meringue pies. Second, when I make a dessert it seems to go to waste.
A few weekends ago, I felt guilty for not ever baking desserts. To compensate, I went overboard. I made a blueberry/raspberry pie:
Only 2 pieces were eaten and I had to throw the rest of the pie away. I HATE throwing away food.
I also made a trifle:
What's a trifle? It is a layered dessert in a pretty glass dish. This one had lemon pound cake, blueberries, white chocolate and a lemon pudding mixture. I took this dessert to a party, so it disappeared. Hubs liked it despite the blueberries.
And, I made my uncle's famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:
They turned out very yummy, but I threw out half the batch because we just didn't eat them fast enough. I HATE throwing out food!
So, maybe I got carried away by making so many desserts in the course of one weekend. But, from now on dessert making is officially reserved for when we have people over or are going to someone's house.
