Did you ever have a dessert so good that you licked the plate? And then asked for a second helping and licked the plate after it was gone? No? I haven’t, either. I would never do something so crass. No way, not me. But someone I know would, and someone I know did – this evening. After an especially long “I don’t want to go to sleep because I’m an independent toddler with a mind of her own!” jag this evening, I emerged groggy from Grace’s bedroom. Before I reached the end of the hall, I smelled baking apples. Joe wanted to surprise me by preparing a Caramel Apple Strudel for our dessert. Isn’t he sweet? Our second surprise – the strudel was so good that we ate the whole thing, each slice topped with a scoop of my homemade vanilla ice cream. I know no adjectives worthy of this extraordinary concoction.
