Sweet American pie

Vilay:  “Ahhhhh….It’s too American.  It’s too sweet for me!”

Me:  “O.k.  Sooooooo, I’m thinking that since I’m American, that means I’m too sweet for you, too.”

*My French husband thinks all American desserts are too sweet. Hmm, the funny thing is that he loves American chocolate cake with chocolate icing.  Go figure!

    Thomas,
    Have you ever had cinamon toast? I will admit that I love cinamon….in gum, pie, candles (smell), etc…but, for some reason it stops at ice cream.

    Vilay doesn’t like it too much. He has, also, told me that it is too powerful in pies. :)

    I had a cinamon gum, that went from my hand to my tongue to the trash in about 1 second. I had cinamon apple pie, that I ate with the biggest faces ever…

    But I have to admit that when it comes from food, it is a huge cultural shock… I have always been cooking, and get frustrated when I cant find the cuts I want, the ingredients I want…or when I find them but, they taste different.

    But now that I think about it, I remember giving up eating something after one bite because it was waaaaay too sweet. Also, have you notices how you have ten thousand parades or celebration every year, and that each time, kids get candies… not the good nice chocolate but all of these sweet disgusting thing (I was looking what the kids just brought back from Halloween alone – it is more candies that I was having during a whole year back in France)

    He thinks that American desserts are too sweet? I would have to disgree there! I think that some of these incredible French desserts and pasteries (while extremely good) are far more sugary and rich than American desserts.

    Deb,
    That is exactly what I told him while eating one of those wonderful sweet, rich and sugary French desserts in France. :)
