Fondue Fun!!

On Friday, October 3, Tim and I celebrated the 10th anniversary of our first date. (We even got a babysitter!) We went to the Melting Pot and enjoyed a four course fondue!! It was so delicious!!! We made reservations early enough that we got one of the private booths for two with a privacy curtain - so romantic!!
Our first course was cheddar cheese with bread, vegetables, and apples for dippers. Then we had salads - Tim got the Southwestern Cobb and I got the California.

For the main course, we chose the Signature Selection which included filet mignon, shrimp, teriyaki-marinated sirloin, salmon, chicken and vegetables. We cooked it Bourguignonne style. First we battered the meat and then cooked it in oil. One of my favorites was the mushrooms. Our waitress suggested filling them with the cream cheese and chives spread before battering and frying them and it tasted heavenly!! I also really like the ginger-plum sauce.

The fourth course was by far my favorite. For dessert, we had the Flaming Turtle Fondue - milk chocolate, caramel and toasted pecans. Our waitress flambeed it at our table. For dippers, they brought us strawberries, bananas, fudge brownies, pound cake, rice krispies, cheesecake, and marshmallows coated with oreo and graham cracker crumbs. YUMMY!!

It was a very memorable evening and soo much fun!! On Saturday, we hosted our own fondue party with our friends, the Rydmans. It was a lot of prep work, but just as much fun!! Thank you again to MOM G. and MOM C. for my amazing fondue pots!!
