Yesterday evening we had dinner with Lisa and Bill. That's always a treat. We were smacking our lips in anticipation all day. The texts were flying back and forth during the lead-up, regarding our various awkward and inconvenient foods intolerances, with me becoming increasingly guilty and embarrassed. No sugar. No wheat. I personally find it difficult to be creative and inspired when cooking. Especially the sugar. It does take a lot of the joy out of eating.
But not for our intrepid cook, Lisa. No. She waved aside my suggestion that she leave me out of the dessert. I think she was mildly outraged at that! And I think it made her all the more determined to come up with something. I have never seen anyone rise to a challenge as she did. Then again, I can't think of anyone else who is so devoted to creating a heavenly table as Lisa is.
This is it.
A chocolate cheesecake. It was divine.
Apart from a lapse of five half-day's over Easter when all that chocolate proved too tempting, I haven't had anything that remotely resembles a dessert in...not sure how long. So it was truly indulgent.
And there was even one for me to take home. Bless her...
Check here in the next day or so for the recipe. I most definitely will.
