Dessert has the shortest shelf life of any perishable in our kitchen. There are three of us, but one of us eats enough for three because he’s growing, and the other one doesn’t want to get shown up so he has to eat plenty, too. If I don’t defend my slice I only get half my portion, and sometimes not even that …you do the math.
Typically we make our desserts after dinner, when homework and dishes and projects are done. The first serving is ready before bedtime, but the real pie-gorging happens the next morning at breakfast. If you’ve never had pie for breakfast you really should, at least once. Sometimes rule-breaking tastes really, really delicious.
