Do you read the dessert menu before choosing your other courses?

I promised to share a photo of the dessert I had last week in a hotel in New Ross, Ireland. We were there to attend a jazz concert that our son was playing in. It was nie to have a night in a lovely hotel. The bed was much better than the one in our motor-home as was the shower. We felt really spoiled for the short time we were there. I can’t remember the name of the sweet but it had a meringue base with whipped cream, ice-cream, strawberry topping and strawberries. The little pink bits were called ‘candy corn’ I think and were just tiny sweet lollies. I chose my other courses carefully so I’d have room for dessert. Do you do that or are you not a dessert person?

@Platespinner Sometimes all the serves are huge so even choosing just an entree can be too much to allow for dessert after. We sometimes share a dessert as Vince isn't supposed to have too much of the sweet stuff. Also, he has cut down on sugar such a lot over the past years that too much makes him feel ill. He enjoys it at the time but feels nauseous later.

@JudyEv My hubby and I were in Michigan over last weekend visiting our son, we went out for dinner and I just wasn't very hungry and so I got an appetizer instead of a meal and my hubby and son thought I was crazy,. I couldn't even finish that.
Desserts served at expensive restaurants I was at, used to be in tiny and dainty amount. Never failed (to my disappointment)! So I have never bothered much with worrying. The buffet type often has better desserts, THAT would be the time when I eat the main meal less so that I could try all the fancy desserts.

I don't usually eat places that have courses. I usually eat fast food restaurants1 But as i said to @platespinner i had chocolate chip cookies homemade Friday that I had for dinner that night! I finished them this morning, so i am thinking of making snickerdoodles or sugar cookies soon! Dinner time for Jennifer when I make them!!

I could too but I am never quite brave enough. I think other diners might be a bit flabbergasted - not that they'd ever notice I guess. But I'd have to wait for Vince to have his mains. Entree and dessert is another option - for me at least.
Yes ,I read the dessert menu ,first when I get the menu book. I order chocolate flavor desserts.My most favourite is chocolate chip ice cream .I love different types of desserts. I have very less from the main course so i can leave space for ice cream.
