SA-WEET!

Photobucket

I'm joining Dazee Dreamer, from Crazy Daze & Nite Dreams, & Christy, from My Mad Mind, in their I Spy picture blogging fun.... you should too!  Each week there is a theme that you provide a photo, or photos for, and it's as creative as you want it to be with that theme. There is also a bloggers' choice photo op where you just share whatever your heart, or camera lens, desires. Your photos don't have to be professional, just capture what you think fits the theme & blog about it. You don't even need a camera per say, use the one in your phone.... everyone has one of those now a days right??  You then link up with the group each week to share your view. You can click on the cute froggie pic up there to be brought to the blog. Also, check out Christy's & Dazee's blogs, they always have some fun and creative stuff.  Ok, on with the picture show.....

This week's theme is SWEET! So here is what I have for ya....


Cool right?? One could actually say SA-WEEET! That would cover both the slang for cool and the fact that it is indeed sweet. That there is the Statue of Liberty made entirely out of Jelly Belly jelly beans. Then of course it's surrounded by other lovey sweeties. This picture I snapped while on vacation in Las Vegas back in Sept of 2011. I can't remember for sure which casino this candy store was in but I'm thinking the safe bet is New York New York. It was on the sky walk level, we were probably making out way to MGM or visa-versa. We were in that area a lot! All I have to say is it had to take a long time to make that masterpiece and I wonder how many jelly beans the person doing it ate and if they ever went into sugar shock??

Ok, now I'm doing extra credit here because while I was going through my picture files to find the Lady Liberty photo I came a cross these 2 pictures also:


What are these you ask? Well they are healthy SWEET treats:-) I figured I showed the unhealthier ones and since I'm trying to bring healthy back (for me) I would share some healthier ones. Yeah, I said it... I'm bringing healthy back! I even wrote an Weird Al(esk) type song about it using the music from I'm Bringing Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake. You can check it out here if you want too... it's pretty SA-WEET if I do say so myself:-)

Ok, the first picture there is one of my favorite snacks. As you can see it's freeze dried pineapple and it's so flavorful! These are little chunks of pineapple that have been dried in a way that they are not chewy they are crunchy but they almost melt in your mouth and they are very flavorful. They are excellent and I get them at Byerlys, if you have those near you. Here is what they actually look like: 

 
They may look a little freaky but trust me they are SA-WEET, in all meanings of the word:-) Ok, that next picture up there is fruit nachos. Yep that's right, you heard me... or read it. It's all fruit, with the exception of the whiter stuff on the lower right of the page, that's yogurt that I used to be the faux sour cream. The stuff that looks like shredded cheese, that's shredded mango:-) The chips, banana chips:-) I used blackberries to look like meat, kiwi to get some green like lettuce, strawberries for the red like tomatoes and then there is some honey and lemon juice mixed in for flavoring. The lower left of the place is the salsa which is a blended mixture of berries. It's pretty taste and you can use pretty much whatever combination of fruit you want really so it's fun.

Well, that's all I have for you on sweet unless you consider my blogger's choice picture to be sweet that is:


I do but she's my baby:-) That's Mogli and she's posing with a plush toy that goes by the name of Petey P Cup. He's the mascot for a local health insurance and the toy was given out at a Saints baseball game. Mogli there kinda stole it cause she thought it was for her. She just cuddled with it though cause she is such a sweetie and she's not into chewing them up. Now if my other dog Karma got her little jaws on it, she would have pulled it apart! She loves to pull all the stuffing out, unless there is a squeaker. If there is a squeaker in it then it's that first and then the stuffing. Hard to keep toys around for that one but Mogli, she just poses all photogenic like:-)

Ok, that's it for this week friends. As always, click on the froggie above to check out the other entries for this week and then post one of your own. Tune in next week when the theme is SPACE!

Ok, that statue of liberty was definitely sa-weet. I would have been clammoring all over it to eat it. And there is nothing like freeze dried pineapple. The funny thing is, I don't like to eat fresh pineapple at all. but I will gorge on the dried ones. hmmmmm
