Yummy Apple Dew Dessert, Sharks Teeth, and Smiles. . . .

it seems everyone i know is on a diet.
oh, i know some say "it's a lifestyle, not a diet".
ya, okay.
if you have to cut out every. single. good-sweet-satisfying
 thing you ever loved to eat, that is a diet. . . . . . . . .if you ask me.
and that's okay too.
because i'm supposed to be losing weight myself.
and as we all know, it's one day at a time.
but does that mean every once in awhile, we don't come across a
super easy delicious recipe to try?
and this one is SO easy and YUMMY,
i have to share it with you!

it's one of those that takes only a few ingredients.
comes together real quick.
is so good, everyone will be lickin their plates and asking for the recipe.
the SECRET recipe.
with the SECRET ingredient!
(not so secret now I guess:)
here's what you do. . . . . .

Apple Dew Dessert
2 packages crescent rolls, separated
4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and quartered
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
12 0z. mountain dew (SECRET ingredient:)

~ ~ wrap apple quarters in sections of crescent rolls and place side by side in
a 9x13 pan.  Make sure apples pieces are totally covered with dough.

~ ~ bring butter, sugar and cinnamon to a boil and pour over apple roll ups.
pour the mountain dew over the apple roll up mixture.
bake at 350 for 45 min. till golden brown.

~ ~ serve warm with ice cream, whipped cream or both:)
*****even better with cinnamon ice cream. just soften a quart of vanilla ice cream,
stir in cinnamon to taste and refreeze.

~ ~ apple dessert can be made ahead and reheated before serving.

well, enough about food, right?
SO, you know you live in Florida when you're walking. . . . .
in FLIP-FLOPS. . . . . . 
and you feel/hear something on the tile floor.
you reach down, thinking there is a staple or a nail in the sole of your flip flops,
you pull out the staple/nail thing and you see that it is neither.
as you bring it closer you realize,
there is a
 in the bottom of your shoe.

seriously...is that cool, or what???
i mean, how often does that happen?
a perfect shark's tooth!
my new lucky shark's tooth:)
yep, this is when you know you're not in kansas anymore:)
