I agree w/ most of the answers;
Dessert tells me that the meal is over!
We always had dessert after meals when I was a kid
& we expect it!
Sometimes we save dessert to enjoy as a snack later.
I love to bake; Cookies & cakes are great for dessert, sharing ( a sweet" )time together after meals is arealpleasure
Fresh fruit also makes a nice dessert
SPECIAL desserts; likeTIRAMISU; eclairs; mousse cups & "TONS" of cookies
are always acceptable for dessert.
Huby the original" COOKIE MONSTER" (w/o cookies;
HE'S A MONSTER!
is dessert a luxury Or an absolute 'MUST HAVE"
In our affluent culture most ofusexpect ot have dessert after every meal. In other lands; dessert is a '"rare treat" What do you think? Do you have to have dessertA fter mostif not ALL meals? If YES, why & what? If NO; why not?
