    Default What's for dessert

    Some friends are coming over for dinner. The appetizer will be
    tortilla chips, guacamole and salsa. For dinner, we are having pork
    tamales, chicken enchiladas, refried beans and Spanish rice. I am not
    sure what to make for dessert. Something easy might be nice. Any
    suggestions?

    I would LOVE to eat that menu! After I'd like lemon sherbet with maybe a
    raspberry puree.

    The easiest would be peeled oranges, sliced into rings 1/4 inch thick
    and sprinkled with cinnamon. That's it. Doesn't sound like much, but
    it's delicious and welcomed after a heavy meal. Image -

    You could serve the orange slices with cookies (like Mexican Wedding
    Cookies), but you don't have to. Image - http://fwd4.me/NBz

    Nice idea.

    Another always have in the pantry is Jello Sugar Free Fat Free
    Puddings. In the summer, I can whip it up...individual ramekins and
    into the freezer for 30 or more minutes. Makes a quick semi frozen
    dessert for hot summer meals. The chocolate and the lemon flavors
    are our favorites.

    Something light:

    Coconut ice cream? Pineapple sherbet? with plain cookies

    Crispas? (Lightly fried flour tortillas sprinkled w. cinnamon-sugar)

    A fruit mix (mango/strawberry/pineaple, etc.) with lime juice and honey
    or mint sugar syrup.

    I made this for the cook-in I had in NM a few years back. It was a
    big hit.

    *shudder*

    God, that **** sucks. And you KNOW it sucks, but you inflict it on your
    family anyway. Hey, just for kicks: Does this look familiar?

    "Modified Food Starch, Maltodextrin, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate and Disodium
    Phosphate (For Thickening), Contains less than 2% of Nonfat Milk, Natural
    Flavor, Salt, Calcium Sulfate, Xanthan Gum, Mono- and Diglycerides (Prevent
    Foaming), Aspartame and Acesulfame Potassium (Sweeteners), Yellow 5, Yellow
    6, Artificial Color."

    That is the ENTIRE list of ingredients for your vaunted lemon pudding, and
    it's in order of most to least prevalence in the product. Do you just
    ****ing HATE your family, or what?

    Golden Vanilla goes with ANYTHING! Serve with sides of assorted syrups,
    oreos, nuts, sprinkles, Amaretto, etc. So elegantly simple, it is SIMPLY
    ELEGANT!

    Almost hedonistic and decadent.

    And there's nothing like some ice cream to put out the fire of spicy foods
    and leave the palate with a "plateau effect", as in Masters and Johnson.
    Ice milk, frozen yogurt, or Italian ice as a supplement.

    Something cold and light - like sherbert or sorbet maybe with one tiny
    cookie.

    I have been playing with nectarines, Amaretto, brown sugar,
    almonds, and crushed Amaretti. I have been thinking about doing a
    shortcake or a cobbler, or maybe a pie. I haven't quite decided
    how to work the Amaretti in though.

    A flan, arroz con leche (rice pudding), bunelos, chocolate cake made
    with Mexican chocolate, biscochitos, Mexican hot chocolate with churros,
    or just cut-up fresh fruit served with lime juice and powdered chile.

    Flan. It's a smooth and soothing ending to a south of the border meal.
    It's also rather simple to make.

    Yes, it is. :-)

    Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions. I haven't made a decision
    yet, so I am still thinking it over. I will take pictures.
