Yesterday we went on a road trip and ventured out to the Ethel M Chocolate Factory, sorry Ethel, as nice as they were, it wasn't Galaxy !!!! Next to the factory they had a cactus garden.....of course, why wouldn't you :) :) it was all being set up for Christmas and so all the cacti were wrapped in lights !
I had a go at being Santa..

I had the belly alright, but I'm working on the beard !!!
One thing you don't want to do is trip and fall into the cacti....jeez, they're spiteful...

After our arduous walk around the garden we treated ourselves to some rather delicious ice cream, I wanted Strawberry Cheesecake and Ricky wanted Rainbow Sherbet..... So we shared. I must say it was DELICIOUS !!!

Next we needed lunch, ok so we'd had dessert first, but we're on holiday so who cares !!! If any of you have been to the States and had an In N Out Burger then you'll know what I mean by TASTY !!! Seriously, these are the best fast food burgers you'll ever taste, they have the most simplistic menu, burger, double burger, cheeseburger and fries and that's it !!!! But it works, it's all cooked fresh right there and we've never been in one that's not busy...

Sorry there's no pic of the burger...I ate that, so you'll have to make do with the salt packet :) :)
We did a little bit more shopping, well I couldn't come home without visiting one of my favourite stores.....

It's at this point that I start to panic and worry how I'm going to get it all back home .... Whoops !!!
When we got back to the hotel that evening we felt a little peckish, so,took ourselves off to one of the restaurants where I had 'just' a chicken sandwich and Ricky had Lemon Chicken... I love that my fries came served in a mini fryer !!!

Ricky's doesn't look as appetizing, but was delicious !!! We had to finish off with a dessert, it would have been rude not to !!
I had lemon meringue and Ricky had Strawberry Shortcake....

All I can say on that is NOM NOM !!!
We then went on to have a little gamble, after all, we are in Vegas..... And I, yes ME...had a Margarita ... Seriously !!!!! Word of warning, the crystallised stuff round the top of the glass is NOT sugar LOL....

We're off to Fogo de Chao... A fabulous Brazillian Steakhouse more foodie pics to come
