Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

Serendipity 3 is part of the Ceasar’s Palace.  It looked like a cool place to go have a dessert after lunch.  We ordered a sundae that was a red velvet cake with a cream cheese frosting sitting on top of 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream, topped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup.  To say it was good, would be an understatement.  It was no Jean-Philippe, but it was sinful.  It was so hot outside, the ice cream had already half melted by the time the waitress brought it to the table.

Okay, after that we had to do some more walking.  I don’t even want to know how many calories there were in that dessert. We headed next door to the Bellagio to check out the gardens in the conservatory.

The Bellagio Conservatory never fails to amaze me.  Oh the things then do with flowers!  Just check out that flower apple.  Every season and every year, the decorations are different and imaginative.

The talking tree was pretty cool.  The colors of the flowers were beautiful.  Everything was so lush.  There were even topiary horses galloping in the middle of the conservatory.  I wish I had one in my yard, but it would be quite an upkeep.  Kinda looks like My Little Pony.  Remember those?

The was an overflowing cornucopia with humongous pumpkins. 

By the time we arrived back at our hotel, I was exhausted from the walk and the heat.  It had gotten up to 100 and some degrees outside.  My husband went to enjoy the coolness of the pool, but I passed out on the bed and took a little siesta.  Hey, afterall it is supposed to be a vacation and we were supposed to be relaxing.  I wanted to enjoy a nap without being woken up by little munchkins.  Besides we have a show planned for this evening and I wanted to make sure I would be able to keep my eyes open for all of it.  As i slept, I dreamt of what I would eat for dinner before the show.  There are so many restaurants that we have yet to try out.  Sweet Dreams…
