I'm with Michele Marie, I would want both. I am easily led by DH in restaurants to have more courses than I should, and I am cutting back on that:hard! I think I will always have a swet tooth, so if I was really pushed I guess I would choose the cake: but it really would be very very hard. Honestly, I think I will take up more sport so tht the choice is less difficult and I cn exercise the calories away!

I'd pick the sweet but only if it's chocolatey. If it was a fruity dessert vs. savory, it would depend on what the dessert is. Apple pie, no thanks, I'd rather not waste the stomach space. lol.

I'd take fresh homemade bread, hot from the oven, slathered in sweet, creamy butter.

For dessert, give me the cheese plate and keep the sweet stuff away.

Am not a real fan of sweets for some reason.

Would much rather end a fine meal with a few slices of cheese and maybe a good port or sherry than some sweet concoction.

Just my preference.

I was asked one time "are you STILL eating"? by a friend who was sitting there eating a big piece of some dessert while I had a few more bites of what our dinner was. What's the difference, I asked. It was "time" for dessert, not to still be eating. So, for all you who ever questioned should you or shouldn't you get that dessert - go AHEAD - apparently it's not really eating after all!

Which answers the question - I'll go for the savory 99.99999999% of the time. Every now and then a little something sweet hits the spot.

Fresh bread

I wintered over at Little America, in Antarctica in 1957.
While on the mid-watch I would go to the galley when the cook was baking bread.
I would take a loaf of bread, fresh out of the oven, pull out all the soft bread inside, leaving only the crust.
Insert ½ cup of butter and “squash”!
With a cup of hot coffee, and butter dripping all over it was a FEAST to enjoy!

Savory over sweets for me any day.

Oh Charlie, I love that. My gosh, I know now I REALLY don't know the meaning of cold but you sure do.

My little boy, the one that isn't little anymore but the one thats back is currently broken, took my bread out of the bread machine one day, took the whole 1 1/2 pound loaf, on his bike and rode the day away with our supper's planned bread. Guess he'd choose the bread over the dessert too. He is one like so few, isn't fond of chocolate.
