fondue party

we went to my friend mark and carla's house for a fondue party last night. this was so much fun. i have never been to a fondue party before. what a feast. we started with the traditional cheese fondue with bread and veggies. is there anything better than melted cheese and bread? we then moved on to the main course where you take cubes of raw meat, fish, or veggies and cook them in a broth. this part was so funny. we all had our sticks in the pot waiting for our dinner cubes to cook. the whole process took a long time, but it was perfect for chatting and hanging out. there were so many choices of things to eat. we had beef, chicken, salmon, shrimp, broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms.

of course we had to have chocolate fondue for dessert. again there were so many things to dip. there were strawberries, cherries, apples, pretzels, marshmallows, rice crispy treats, and pound cake. there was even a chocolate cake in case you didn't get enough sweets. it was dessert heaven. mmm. i wish i had some of that chocolate cake right now.

we got home super late for the kids and poor mason was crazy tired. it was so fun though. boy, now i am going to have to think up something good for the next dinner party at my house.

That's so cool. My fondue set is still in the box in my pantry. I'm feeling a little inspired now...

I've always wanted to have a sushi dinner party (where you make your own sushi rolls). Maybe we should give that a try.
