birthday (mine) dessert - easy, feeds two, not much time

sloped | Jan 7, 2009 08:06 AM

My boyfriend is cooking dinner for me on Friday night and I would like to make the dessert.

The constraints are:

Time - I will be at work all day Friday (and Thursday too with plans Thursday evening) so I need something I can make when I get home.

Quantity - I don't want a lot of leftovers. Two servings for that evening is plenty.

Space - boyfriend will be cooking all day and that means a mess in the kitchen with precious little space available. I might have access to the oven and will be able to use my KA mixer (I hope).

Thoughts? Some kind of parfait? Should I go simpler and just do figs with ricotta and honey? Ice cream sundaes? I love sweets and am looking forward to indulging for my birthday.
