"I've been threatening to do this for a while now, but I thought I'd check to see if everyone is game to have an all-dessert dinner. See, I'm feeling a significant lack of sugar in my life right now.

Of course, we can loosely interpret the "dessert" theme. But every dish should have a strong sweet element in it. Or we could go all-out, and be very dessert-y about the whole thing.

Any objections? If not, I'll send out an official dinner theme message in a couple days. The real question is, can you handle it? Are you girl (grrrl) enough for it? Be afraid. Be very afraid." --Frith
