Saturday night we went to a dinner party and ate from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. That’s a pretty big deal for my husband and I who generally take 10 minutes to eat lunch.
It was my first fondue dinner, and I really enjoyed it.
We started with apple and french bread pieces to dip in a swiss cheese mix. Then our host and hostess had beef, chicken, shrimp, and lobster to cook in a boiling meat broth with a side of mixed vegetables. There was even a little bowl of butter over a tea light to dip our lobster or vegetables in.
Plus this was an adult only dinner party. No kids. I didn’t have to cut a single piece of meat! For me or my munchkins.
It was hard to know how much I ate because I usually check the size on my plate. I just tuned in to my stomach and ate till I felt comfortable. Well, except for the chocolate. I ate a couple more strawberries than I probably should have; but they were so-o good!
It was people from my husband’s work and ya just never know, but the others were pleasant and comfortable to be around. They explained things and answered any questions I had without making me feel dumb for asking. There was lots of laughter and that is always the sign of a good party, right?
Have you had a fondue party? Have you gone to a fondue restaurant? Like it or hate it?
