The other night I needed dessert. No, I'm sorry, I should make that clearer. I NEEDED DESSERT. It was 10pm and we didn't have anything readymade in the house. I'm trying to have a new rule: If I eat dessert I need to make it myself. That way I have to put some effort into it and I can try to reduce the butter and sugar and I know what's in it. Restaurant desserts can have 1,000 calories and you have no clue. And storebought desserts generally have high fructose corn syrup and a million ingredients I can't pronounce.
But it was 10pm, so making chocolate cookies like I wanted to wasn't very reasonable. So I went looking through our pudding mixes. I saw a Cook 'N' Serve custard. I instantly knew I would make that since I had just read about Blackberries with Sweet Cream on The Pioneer Woman's site hours earlier. Jell-O custard with thawed blueberries and strawberries mixed in was as close as I could get. Sadly I had to let it sit in the fridge for an hour so I was eating dessert at about 11:30 at night. Let's just say I'm having trouble with #1 on my 25 Before 25 List (lose 25 pounds).
Also, I don't have any cute little ramekins (I live a deprived life) to put the custard in because I am living in my first real apartment (post-college aka non-furnished) and my kitchen supplies leave a lot to be desired. But never fear! I DO have wine glasses from the dollar store! (Really they're glass! The dollar store is actually a sweet place to buy dishes.)
