When we moved to our house 3 years ago, we were very happy to meet the new neighbors. But little did we know that the AWESOMEST neighbor of not just our block, but easily the city, possibly the world, and the galaxies far-far away, is actually right across the street from us.
If he borrows your car keys – it’s only to give your car a “quick rinse”; if his ladder is out – no doubt he’ll offer to wash your windows; if your father-in-law is bored – The Awesomest Neighbor will take him for sightseeing. And the list goes on and on!
Moreover, he is the most grateful recipient of all the things I bake. Not only does he find the best words to praise them, he can also chow down 2-3…-4 helpings of my desserts in one sitting; which is probably 2-3…-4 times more than what your daily calorie intake should be.
So, since we are in this healthy eating craze, our dear friend, The Awesomest Neighbor, will have to go on a diet too (at least when stopping by this household)… Milton, I hope you keep visiting us [keep asking for our car keys/call us when Costco offers "killer deals"/volunteer to babysit ...] after you try these no-sugar-no-butter-no-flour desserts.
