No no I couldn't possibly eat a dessert !

What wouldn't you say?

I hate jelly, custard, cream, and really anything sweet which is served as a dessert. I prefer a savoury dish. I would just say that I was awfully full and could not possibly eat any more.

'I'll go with my gut.'
Whenever I hear a contestant say this on a quiz show, it brings out all my mean instincts and I will them to fail. Add the word 'instinct' and I'll root for you.

I think the word 'basically' is a useful word....I love it !!

Is this like a trick question?

No Absent it's not a trick question. I was out with old friends for lunch yesterday and when it came to dessert I was busily looking through the menu when my friend said 'I rarely eat desserts' and I suddenly realised I never said that, wish I did as I would be a size or two smaller.

Now back to the thread.

I'm more likely to suggest sharing a desert. A pub restaurant near us does mini deserts with a coffee or tea. It's a great idea, you get the sweet taste, but only a fraction of the calories.

Ha, ha. I've told my I Pad off!

Mind you, it's the ' wiches' that add the calories!
