Before moving to Virginia, we had a monthly date with our friend Kim to have fondue. The kids referred to her as "Aunt Kim" and looked forward to her visits because we always painted our lips with chocolate. She was that kind of fun. She really is the reason that JT and I met and got married!
We had a date to have fondue with friends this evening..first time in Virginia!!! I was so excited. Sadly, due to sickness-public education, curse you!! My daughter is sick and we had to cancel. What to do with all this FRUIT!! Well, we can't have it taking up space in my kitchen. Who knows, I may want to bake and there will not be room. This kitchen isn't big enough for the two of us (me or the fruit)!! So, for our evening meal we had an assortment of wonderful and healthy things...with fondue!
And I want you to know that I handled the disappointment of missing a fondue party like any woman would: I masked, watched Julie and Julia, and finished off the fondue!
