Fondue For Dinner

Usually Leif and I try to run away together for Valentines Day. At least for the evening. But this year we decided that it would be fun to just spend time with family. I woke up in the morning and I had a picture idea come to mind.:) I decided that it would be fun to have a fondue dinner together as a family. I wanted all the fixin's: Meat, bread, veggies, and dessert.

So we set out to make it happen! We invited Leif's parents to join us. Seth and Valen were technically planning on being on the road headed back to school for Valen in South Carolina. But we secretly hoped that this dinner would sway them to stay longer so we could get to know Valen better. Come to find out that Valen has a tradition with her sister and mom where they go out to a fondue dinner for Valens birthday (on the 16th of February.) Valen was shocked when we asked her to join us. She though that Seth had put us up to the idea. Nope! Not Seth, but someone else definitely put us up to it.

We had a beautiful and DELICIOUS spread of food! We had so much food that we got to have leftovers the next day for dinner. Leif made the bread dipping sauces. I made the dessert (of course! MMM!

We had a great time eating and visiting throughout the evening! A great Valentines Day!

Don't worry there was romance mingled into the whole equation too. ;) I just have to make that clear for the record!:)

Lena - what a great idea. I have been wanting to do fondue for the longest time. I would love it if you would share your recipes for me. Then I might get brave! :)

It has been years since I have done fondu (probably high school days). Thanks for reminding me.
