    Default What's good with?

    a green salad, bread just out of the oven and spaghetti? We have in-coming
    grandsons this evening and I just can't think of what would be a great
    dessert. Polly

    That's a hefty meal in my mind. How old are the grandsons? Under 10,
    ice cream bars. Over 10, ice cream and/or sherbet in a dish. <shrug>

    The youngest grandson will turn twenty-one soon. All of them are at the age
    where they are never full; just tired chewing. It's fun to feed them since
    they have no delicate sensibilities. Polly

    Chocolate mousse. If you prefer boxed dessert mixes to made-from-scratch,
    make whipped topping from 1 package of Dream Whip and incorporate 1 package
    of Jello Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding mix.

    Hi Polly! You gave me quite a laugh with the "tired of chewing"
    remark! Ha! What a hoot!

    As a young man, I never got tired of cheese cake. A nice slice of that
    would make them go crazy!

    Tiriamisu? Cheesecake? Sorry but I didn't grow up in a family that had
    dessert with most meals, not even for company.

    Well, you could feed them some delicious fresh fruit and yoghurt.
    But what they really want is chocolate cake and icecream.

    Maybe even ice cream pie; a nice graham cracker crust filled with ice cream
    and layer of "toppings".

    A nice glass of wine would be fine for me, but my experience of feeding
    the very young nieces and nephews leads me to suggest that you not worry
    too much about being inventive or unique, just about any "dessert" will
    be approved of, i often use the visit of young relatives as an excuse to
    make the bananas, vanilla pudding and 'nilla wafer desert, topped with
    whipped cream its always a big hit here as one sister is a health food
    nut and the other is just cheap.

    Polly.

    I'd just have fun with it!

    Serve each with plastic cups of milk. Then "I'll be right back."

    Then walk back to the table with two plates one filled with Oreo and the
    other with Chips Ahoy cookies.

    If their jaws drop, stick it to 'em and quickly reach for one and
    submerge one in your cup, getting your fingers dunked in milk also
    exclaiming with a smile, "What are you waiting for?" then much it down
    whole.

    OR if they jump to life, you can stick it to 'em another way... "Reminds
    me of when you were kids!"

    Either way you "stick it to 'em," I'd bet it'll become a favorite family
    story to tell!

    If anyone is lactose intolerant pour a milk serving from a carton of
    Lactaid brand milk.

    Or not!

    Best,

    Andy

    I fail to see how that would render you unable to come up with a
    dessert idea. Surely at holidays or birthdays there were desserts? Or
    you've seen dessert menus? Or been served desserts at other homes?

    I'd serve shortbread and ice cream, if you're going for something
    simple. Or just a simple chocolate cake with ganache or dusting of
    powdered sugar and cocoa. Actually, I'd just serve fruit, but I imagine
    for the grands you want something more.

    Lemon sherbet and shortbread cookies.

    How about a fruit dessert? Not just fruit, but a dessert made with
    fruit, maybe mostly fruit. Like a crumble?

    Gee, no meat-a-balls?

    Just plunk down some cream or sherbet - I bet they aren't fussy.
