  • Have you ever wondered why, no matter how stuffed we are, there's always room for dessert?

    I assumed it was because I'mma greedy bastard who loves Pumpkin Pie.

    Is the science in on that now?
  • Because the dessert compartment is different from the dinner compartment, of course. That's what my kid always insisted when it was time for pie and he hadn't finished his dinner.

    But really--shouldn't you make pie a priority in your life anyway?

    Hmm...a little tweak...

  • Damnit. Now I want pie.
  • eraser8: Damnit. Now I want pie.


    Me too and not just any pie, either. I want good pie.

    A slice of Homemade Lemon Meringue and Pumpkin Pie with real whipped cream and maybe one of those Chocolate Pecan dealies DeaH was talking about the other day. Key Lime can be good too.

    Eat all the pie things!
  • I've never ordered desert. But have chosen a cheese plate with wine for 'desert' with some fruit and bread--hey it came with the meal.
  • atlfarkette: I never eat dessert.


    *fistbump*

    Sweet after savory makes me physically ill.

    I can eat pie or something as an appetizer, but cake after pasta or somehing? No way.

    Not every meal needs pie afterwards.

    Neither does pie need a prior meal.
  • Always more room.

    /I mixed up the batter, and she licked the beater.
  • I can usually eat it because I don't go for dessert *right* after the meal. Wait about an hour or so - you'll enjoy it more, and you can have a bigger piece.

    When I was a kid I would say I was 'full' to avoid eating my veggies (well, the ones I didn't like). But when it was revealed that we have ice cream or Jell-O for dessert, I came up with the explanation that the dessert would be able to slip into the cracks in between the stuff in my "full" stomach. It worked a few times, but in most cases it was 'if you have room for dessert you have room for those last 3 brussel sprouts"
  • The radius of the circle dictates how much room is left. Pi merely gives you the ratio of surface area to volume
  • I assumed the answer was "because I held back and only ate 4 plates for dinner".

    Most pies are actually pretty healthy for you - by virtue of basically pureed fruit in a shell of bread.

    Just like chocolate cake is good for you because it has eggs and milk.

    Pies are mostly fruit, and you can make them without adding sugar. Cakes are mostly flour - not eggs and milk, and you have to add a shiatload of sugar. And fat, butter or shortening.

    Wait, what? No I don't think that's pie :)

    Exactly what I was thinking. That's one of my favorite Cosby skits.
  • Because, as Nietzsche so famously said, if you don't consume the pie, then the pie consumes you.

    Some people would contend that pureed fruit inside bread is not actually a particularly healthy dish.

    Sure, fruits have a lot of vitamins, but aside from that a pie is basically a load of sugar wrapped in more sugar. Some of the sweeter fruits register 15-20 Brix, which means almost a fifth of their weight is sucrose even without adding extra sugar, and most pies do contain added sugar.

    Now, I'm not trying to badmouth fruit or pie -- I love them.
    But it's silly to call pie healthy, it will absolutely make you a fatass.
  • From TFA:

    "I still fully intend to stuff myself with Tofurkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing until I can't breathe on Thanksgiving and follow that with vegan pumpkin pie..."

    Q: How can you tell if someone's vegan? A: Don't worry, they'll tell you.
