A Whimsical Dessert

After a delectable dinner of spare ribs, orzo, roasted peppers (recipe below) and wine, what more could we want? We were sated with warm and comforting food. But, did you ever want dessert but not a whole piece of anything? Maybe you just want a bite of something sweet to top off the perfect meal.

Our hostess, Pat, knows. We finished dinner, the plates were cleared and as we sipped our wine and chatted, she surreptitiously went to a dish in the corner of the dining room, grabbed handfuls of red and green M&Ms — both plain and peanut  — and literally scattered handfuls of yummy M&Ms on the table right before our eyes. We grabbed like little kids.

She knew we only needed a bite of chocolate to finish off her perfect meal. Don’t be surprised if I borrow her idea, so might you.

Pat’s Roasted Peppers
I only know this from what I remember seeing her do. They go perfectly with any meat.

  • Peppers — yellow, red and orange — cleaned and cut into three-inch slices
  • olive oil
  • parmesan cheese

Toss peppers with olive oil and salt and pepper and place skin side down on baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes in 375 degree oven. After 25 minutes, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and broil until slightly brown. Serve immediately.
