I Must Ask . . . Do You Prefer Appetizers or Desserts?

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. –Voltaire

It looks like the morning people are in the majority. And since I asked about it last week, I've been working on my morning skills by trying to get to bed earlier and by getting up when the alarm goes off. I managed one 6:30 morning, but the rest of my mornings have been less than stellar because I really love to sleep when I'm sleeping. Still, I'm going to keep plugging away at becoming a morning person. Mrs. P sent me a link on how to be a morning person, which I found very interesting and helpful.

Today, we're talking food. Going out to dinner {and a movie} is one of the favorite things Mr. Bug and I like to do on a date. Mr. Bug likes to order an appetizer and I like to order dessert. You see, I have a sweet tooth and by the time you eat the appetizer and your meal, there's no room left over for dessert. Mr. Bug is all about the savory foods and could take dessert or leave it. When Mr. Bug orders an appetizer I, of course, will help him eat it {unless it is seafood of some sort}. And that usually means no dessert for me, which is probably OK because it goes straight to my hips anyway. But given a choice, I can live without the appetizer and would definitely choose to have dessert instead. I even like to eat dessert first {just last night, as a matter of fact}. After all, what's life without a little sweetness in it? How about you? I must ask . . . would you rather have an appetizer or dessert?

Appetizers all the way baby! I can take dessert or leave it , most often because people insist on spreading nuts on it/in it or somewhere in the vicinity. Im a completely savoury girl at heart.

Mmmmmmmmmm Im thinking about prawn cakes and shallot pancakes now.

I've never understood eating before eating. But I DO understand eating after eating. Desserts all the way, baby (even though I'm not eating many these days).

I'm with you....dessert every time. I went out for dinner tonight and ate dessert first!

Rhonda said...

I prefer appetizers except if there's sticky date pudding on offer. Then I'll go for dessert!

I would usually like an appetizer and dessert, with no entree. That's enough food, and things that I don't bother making at home.

I'm with you Elizabeth. Dessert, dessert, dessert! I have ordered dessert before entree before. (the waiter wasn't sure what to make of that for some reason!) I have ordered appetizer and dessert, no entree before too. Sometimes those things are much tastier (and smaller quantities so you can not feel so guilty) than the offered entrees. :)

I selected dessert. I love ice cream. However, I love the idea of ordering just an appetizer and dessert. And for me, I prefer a bowl of my favorite choice from the freezer in front of the tv after my kids have gone to bed. cheaper that way.
