Last night, in a dessert-searching mood in my kitchen, I made a keto-friendly pumpkin cheesecake thing-y, with crushed walnuts in the crust and a bunch more spread on the top.
I left it out, covered with a screen, to cool in the night air, then had a serving of it an hour or so later. (It was very meh and not so fabulous.) This morning I discovered that I not only had not left the dessert out all night but that the nearby Squirrel Squad had found it and was going all in on it.
Well, if one is going to lose a home-baked dessert to the neighborhood squirrels, better it be done with a meh-tasting one than a delicious one.
