“Oh, nooo, diet again” was my first thought when my husband concluded a few days ago that he had a few kilograms more than he should, just before the start of his badminton season.
Only God knows that periods like this make most problems for, yes, you guessed it, little old me. I could already hear the sentences that were about to be said:
“Vera, you were making something sweet again and you know I can’t eat that!” Vera, please, think of a combination without pasta and meat” or “Vera, can we eat something sweet but with a little less calories today”. That was to be expected.
And as I imagined, the day soon came. The diet was official for a few days already, but with the diet came a new problem: how to prepare my new blog dessert and fit it into Darko’s diet. The only chance was to convince him to make an exception in his diet after for days and give himself permission for a few sweets.
The task was clear, a small portion of a decadent dessert. The solution came up very quickly in the shape of a photography on Pinterest – Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait. Everything that my husband and I loved (chocolate and peanut butter) packed into a sweet little portion. And with all that it’s the first parfait in my blogging career.
And so, a layer of peanut butter mousse, a layer of sweet crumbs and a layer of chocolate mousse in two glasses of beautiful Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait were slowly cooling of in the fridge waiting for their time.
„Vera, today is my sweet day. Do you have a solution for me” he asked full of excitement waiting for his “five minutes of fame”.
„Wooow“ was the only word he could mumble while he was greedily emptying the glass with parfait as soon as I got it out of the fridge. A few moments later, his stare was on my half-full glass .
„Ok, OK, you can have some, but don’t blame me and say it’s my fault that you ate more than you planned“.
“Nah, I would never do anything like that, my queen” promised my husband eating the rest of the Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait from my glass.
„I will just have a smaller dinner and everything will be perfect” was the thing I heard for a millionth time while Darko is on a diet. Some things never change, do they 🙂
