Just Desserts

It’s Saturday night and time for a nice night out. We have landed at a friend’s house. The boys are excited to see their friend Mathias. And, Mathias has prepared a lovely dessert for everyone, except for himself. I imagine it is important for the chef’s pallet to remain clean.
Six white and very modern looking dessert plates are lined up with a display a colorful and amazingly professional looking desserts on each one. His dad shares the ingredients with us; four Cheezits, one M & M, a sliver of cantaloupe, a pita bread chip, a small strawberry wedge, a carefully placed sprinkle of cinnamon, and a drizzle of Tabasco sauce. It is actually plated very professionally. Mathias and his father watch cooking channels together, and wow, it shows!
When it is time for dessert, Mathias serves each of us the specific plate he has planned. Then, he does what any good chef does; waits for honest feedback from his guests. Except, he goes for complete honesty by crawling under the dining room table and waiting for us to talk. The chef of the evening is well beyond his 5 years of life experience.
We all let the chef know the great job he has done. He takes his craft very seriously. I was absolutely delighted by the whole experience. It was wonderful.
