my feelings towards what’s eaten now are 1-does it bring pleasure? 2- taste good?
3- does it really matter at this late stage?
how sad is that?
Oh dear I get 3 or 4 high calorie chocolate mousses down dad most days and every time they are a complete surprise to him, like he has never had one before. I ask him if he would like a chocolate mousse and he says he will try one. In the 30 seconds that it takes me to go and get one he has forgotten that I asked and it is another complete surprise. 'Ooh I didn't know you was getting that for me' and 'I will try to eat it all but there is a lot there' There isn't, it's tiny and he always eats it followed by lots of burping.
High calorie deserts are not easy to find. I used to get him the tiny little GU chocolate ganaches as they had 300 calories a pot but they have been discontinued which is a bit annoying but I have since found suitable substitutes. I have even put a bit of cream on top at times. We get through an incredible amount of cream but I don't worry about high cholesterol any more for dad.
