What happens when you want dessert for dinner?
How low will you go?
Do you give in to the urge to slather on the sugar?
Will you go with out?
Do you savor your salty tooth?
Do you suffer through?
This is what I do:
Pink Lady apple, slivered
California Dates cut slender
Dried Figs to do the same
Pecan added to the mix
Red Mezzula baby leaf lettuce with a rich "nutty" taste!
Grape Seed oil
Balsamic Glaze/Crema!...to sweeten the bowl.
Pile on the proportions as you see fit.
Mix up the offerings too..
Fuji apples, olive oil, Arugula, golden raisins,any dried fruit.
However the Dates + Balsamic = Caramel dreams come true
Do think I can stop my Self there?
My appetite for rich warm flavors can hardly waver there...Oh, no!
I grab a small tower of Gingersnap cookies until they are nothing but crumbs.
Then I chased it all down with a giant mug of "Big Black" = Earl Grey + cloves + honey
... Ya I'm a double-bagger, so what!
Do what you like. Do what's good for you...and Smile.
