From one extreme to the other

Las Vegas is all about extremes. Here is one example, you can go from the Deep Fried Twinkie available for 99 cents at the Mermaids Casino downtown. It looks alot like a corn dog. I wanted someone else to eat one so I could see the expression on their face after biting into it because I know this woman's expression is completely for show. According to CalorieKing it's only 420 calories and 45 carbs, too many for me.

Now for the other extreme, the new Jean-Philippe Patisserie located just past the conservatory in the Bellagio Casino and Hotel. This is the chocolate fountain that greets you at the entrance. Yes its true it's only for show but its pretty and there are plenty of treats that you can eat there.

For instance check out this huge Rice Krispie Easter Egg. That would even take me a while to finish.

Rice Krispies Treat!

On a little fancier level, there is a large assortment of beautifully crafted desserts from which to choose.

Yummy

but wait there's more

My friend Patti, who lives in Ontario, surprised me and showed up in Vegas. Here are our choices. She had the Chocolate covered strawberry and I found a sugar free, almond flour fruit tart. They were yummy.

It was a great place to visit! I can't wait to get back there.

Speaking of chocolate, can't wait to see Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka!

Today on Oprah: Lisa Marie Presley said she consummated her marriage to Michael Jackson. Shocker. She didn't look like she was lying either. She looks soooooo much like her dad. She also said that she didn't tell her mother she was marrying him, Priscilla found out from the news. Kids. I can tell the future...from the April 5th issue of Time Magazine.

    You go to that beautiful new chocolate shop and you don't even have anything chocolate? You're a sick woman Paula! I'll make up for your lapse in May. Great pics.

    You two seemed to have a good time in Las Vegas. I guess I'll have to try the low carb treat at Jean-Phillipe!
