fondue and stuff.

I mentioned matt & I went to melting pot last weekend?  After that Matt became very obsessed interested in acquiring a fondue pot and melting pot cookbook to recreate the experience at home.   The fondue pot (from Amazon.com) arrived Friday afternoon and I went to the store for a few a million lots of ingredients for the three courses we would try.

cheese

meat

chocolate

It was a hit!  I made up a few sauces for the meat because the many sauces really made th e meal.  The sauces were surprisingly just like the ones at the melting pot.  I made a carribean sauce and a spicy horseradish sauce.   I marinated steak, pork, and chicken.  We made the cheddar garlic cheese and flambeed chocolate with caramel. YUM.

The end of this school year is coming quickly.  Less than three weeks.  Amanda has two awards assemblies this week and Isabelle is going on a field trip to the zoo Thursday (me too!).

Matt and I had Logan’s Roadhouse for lunch today after church… here we are arriving…

I copied a recipe (claiming to be healthy) from the southern living on the table beside the chair I sat in while getting a pedicure Friday.  It is a chicken taco with mexican corn and black beans on ww tortillas but the interesting part was the sauce you make with lf sour cream, jalepenos and cilantro.  I’m making it for dinner tomorrow, if it’s good I’ll post the recipe!

Oh… one more thing… we’ve been asking iz tons of questions and watching her yes/no answers.  It’s been interesting to get such clear answers from her!

    Yum! I should look into getting one, as I don’t think I could ever drag my hubby to the Melting Pot.

    I am going to try and head to Sonic this week, hoping the “craze” for it has died down some. The wait time has been outrageous!

    Your family stays so busy. This is the highlight of raising kids. I’m sure you are proud of the kids doing well in school AND being able to get responses from Izzy. She is doing well, it seems. (Loved your picture with Matt.)

    Congrats to Amanda on her awards and upcoming graduation activities.

    I’m so impressed you could make up those sauces! Cooking is a talent that I pretty much don’t possess, haha! 😀
