Last night Hubby and I went out for our fondue dinner alone.
It was really nice! We had a four cheese fondue to start that you dip in bread and apples. It was yummy, the cheeses were asiago, provolone, gruyere, and marscapone. It had a white wine base and a little garlic, worcestshire, red pepper and pesto. Mmmmmmmm
Then, after a salad we did the bourgoinione style of cooking in oil. We had 2 batters to use, a sesame batter and a plain one. The meats were filet mignon cubes, marinated teriyaki steak, chicken cubes, and shrimp. Also there were raviolis to cook and potato wedges, yellow squash and other veggies that we don't eat! lol They give you about 9 different dipping sauces for it all, too.
Dessert was the dark chocalate smores fondue! Dark chocalate melted and mixed with graham cracker crumbs and flambeed brandy. The dippings were strawberries, pineapple cubes, banana slices, brownie cubes, marshmallows, pound cake cubes and a small slice of cheesecake that you can use a spoon to drizzle the fondue over.
It was heaven on earth!!!
But, the best part was sitting in the little romantic 2 person private booth, and being able to giggle and laugh and talk without any interruptions for whole meal!
Romantic and sweet!
Today, Hubby took Fuzzy and Pumpkin to the batting cages for a bit after breakfast. Fuzzy is turning his eyes toward the baseball season now.
Pumpkin and I played some Boggle together! It was a lot of fun and is such a great way to build vocabulary and spelling skills without even realizing it! Fuzzy joined us for a couple of games near the end.
Hubby is in the basement finishing up some framing details. Soon it will be sheetrock time.
Honestly, I don't know when though! Every weekend for the rest of this month and all of next is just jammed full of things going on for the kids and family! Some weekends, like next weekend, there are three or four things that need to be juggled! It will be a bit nuts!
Thank goodness for coffee!
I have so many great Valentine's graphics I am trying to use two an entry to fit them in!
I hope you enjoy!
