Quite the spread, eh?
I realize this is a bit overdue, but I just downloaded my pictures and wanted to put these up here despite them being a week late. If you remember my "Valen-times" post, you'll know I planned a special surprise fondue lunch for my husband.
I had beef and chicken, mushrooms (for me), yam & potatoes, three kinds of dipping sauces, garlic dill pickles on the side, and dill pickle cream cheese dip with ruffle chips as a filler.
Despite being little portions of food, fondue is actually quite filling. Well, we kept at it for a while... we were cooking and eating for about an hour before the gel finally burned up and our oil wasn't boiling anymore.
Dessert was awesome. Just look at that chocolate... it was so smooth and creamy! It was just melted Chipits mixed with a bit of cream. So, so good.
Sliced peaches, strawberries, marshmallows, and gluten-free pretzels were all ready for the dipping. I also had crushed peanuts to roll the goodies in, once they were all covered in chocolate.
Mmmmm.... I think I'm going to start drooling.
My favourite was the peaches, probably because Tyler kept on losing his in the chocolate, and I had them perfect every time. A little bit of payback for him stealing my forks in the meat fondue, ha ha.
So that's it. My special, secret, suprise fondue luncheon. Have one for yourself sometime, it was really fun and I'm definitely going to do it again soon!
