Life's Been Good to Me So Far

My neighbors asked me to water they're garden while they went away on a trip and as a reward, brought me this lovely pie.  It had gold chocolate flecks on the top!   We're not dessert people because P doesn't like sweets, which means I stopped making them, which means I'm not a dessert person.  Plus, sugar makes me anxious and gives me acne like a teenager but I'm not smart enough to stop eating it just because it makes me miserable.  But when I dipped my fork into this opulent dream, you would have easily mistaken me for a pie lover.  In fact, I froze a few pieces and ate a whole half of it before throwing the rest out, standing at the trash can with the sadness of attending a funeral as the heavy thud sound of the remnants sank straight to the bottom.  It turns out Petee's Pie Company is one of the best pie makers in the city, according to the New York Magazine as well as many other publications.  They have a location down the street in Brooklyn.   This was the Lavish Chocolate Cream - A rich, old-fashioned chocolate pudding made with bittersweet chocolate and cocoa, topped with dollops of fresh whipped cream and real gold leaf-adorned chocolate flakes.  

This was all that and a bag of chips. I never expect a reward but they always give us one and unfortunately for them, they keep upping their game, so next time they'll have a hard time topping this one.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
