The Greatest Dessert EVER
When I get a yearning for something sinfully sweet, it is usually ice cream. Mostly I quell my sweet-tooth with either a bit of dark chocolate (doesn't take much) or a little yogurt with honey and raisins. But tonight I could hear Chunky Monkey calling my name from Kroger's two miles away...
Hal, who does not want me to BE a chunky monkey, steps up to the plate and literally whips up this lovely, completely satisfying concoction: fresh strawberries, grapes cut in half, pumpkin seeds, freshly whipped real cream with a little raw sugar and minced vanilla bean, topped with a sprinkling of organic cacao. Substitute any combo of fruit and nuts, of course. A few nights ago, he made this with mom's homemade granola bars broken up then mixed with fresh fruit. Yum.
Ok, I'm going to eat this lovely sweetness now. Heaven. I'm in heaven. If there is one, this is it.
