I never considered myself someone with a huge sweet tooth. Until I got married. Compared to the Mister my teeth are made of sugar. We often have this exchange:
Me: I’m going to have ice cream for dessert. Do you want some?
The Mister: Um…
Me: (realizing) Ohmygod! You’re going to eat an apple!
The Mister: (hand in the fruit crisper) But sometimes that’s just what I want!
I don’t let that deter me from eating my dessert. But being a multi-tasker, I do it whilst giving him grief.
We did find common dessert ground, appropriately, at our wedding where we enjoyed delicious mini-pies courtesy of Simple Things (www.simplethingsrestaurant.com). I am completely obsessed with this place. Flavors included: salted caramel, lemon bar, cherry, chocolate peanut butter with a large pumpkin pie centerpiece. Besides making promises of ever lasting love, it was a highlight of the wedding. And maybe for some, the pie trumped all. Fine by me. I’m happy to get upstaged by yummy pie any day.
