Three Cheers for Dessert

I have been hearing for weeks how good it is to eat at Serendipity, the latest restaurant offering in Las Vegas. It just opened at Caesar's Palace a few weeks ago. It is a big ordeal in New York City and so I thought I would check it out with my best food friend, Melanie. When we aren't eating food, we are certainly talking about food. Plus, this is her last week in Nevada before the big move to Utah, so it was even more imperative that we get over there quick.



We went for dessert and got the famous Frrrrozen Hot Chocolate, and a "modest" slice of carrot cake. The Frrrrrozen Hot Chocolate definitely lived up to its billing, especially if you love chocolate as much as we do. Then they brought out the carrot cake...

...and my jaw just about hit the table. To say it was huge would be an understatement. The piece could easily feed four to six people. It was insane. We had to cut it into two pieces to get it to fit in a to-go box.

It was a lot of fun.

Today, Melanie came and fixed dinner for us at our house, seeing as how her house is now devoid of all pots and pans. She threw them all out for the move. I guess when she moves into her new place, she will be treating herself to a new, grown-up set of cookware.

We ate sloppy joe's and then after dinner, we made all of the kids ice cream cones with the caveat that they all eat them outside. It cuts down on the cleaning bill. This is all of the kids, including Lindsay's brood. She had a hot date tonight with her husband, so I am the daycare center. Zach is the mysterious masked figure hovering above everyone else.

Three cheers for ice cream, cake, and Frrrrrozen Hot Chocolate!

Hip, hip, hooray.

There is a Serendipity here in NYC, too. I haven't been there yet, but I've wanted to if only to try the frozen hot chocolate. It's a pretty popular tourist stop, though, so the lines are always super long. One of these days I'll get there. Judging by your photos, it looks pretty tasty.

There's nothing like frrrrozen hot chocolate! Or having someone take my kids all night so I could go stand for Ben Folds. Thanks again!

That restaurant sounds divine! It wasn't even on my radar until I read your post. Now I'm adding it to my "date night" to do list.

Melanie told me about your sloppy joe night and her pans (I'm not good friends with teflon pans either). And then today, my daughter (Mae) cried all the way home from school because it was Haley's last day. Heart-breaking sobs. It's hard when a friend moves away.
