Fondue

Oh my heavens, do I love fondue. I went to a Christmas party last night and ate about as much fondue as I could stand... and then I ate some more. I mostly ate pound cake dipped in the chocolate, but I also had strawberries, cherries, grapes, pineapple, and itty bitty rice krispie treats, which I had never had as a fondue item before. It was sublime.
My roommates and I once had a dinner party where we served cheese fondue as the dinner course and chocolate fondue for dessert, and it was a big hit. Everyone sat around on the floor and made fun of each other when our food bits fell in the fondue. Good times.

Fondue - A-

I love fondue. Had a 2 or 3 course meal at The Melting Pot one night ....WOO LORD it was good. But I felt like a total heffer when I left. Those chocolate fondue fountains are cool too!

I was at Dustin's once when he still lived in Sag-nasty and we had fondue. Were you there with a bf? seriously.. I can't remember - my mind is shot! I was thinking I'd never met you, but now I'm not so sure.. hrm. Dustin - can you confirm?
Anyway, the fondue was fantastic. I have an electic fondue pot and LUV it!

It was good wasn't it Amandarama? I ate too much of it too, at least I diddn't dip my shrimp cocktail in it! The cheese one sounds yummy too!

One other thing...would you believe that I actually wrote you a postcard and it's been sitting here at my computer since Nov. 19th?!?! I have a whole series that I plan to mail to you. They are illustrations by William Blake. Very cool. Forgive me for being a lousy correspondent.
Sarah the correspondent? F-

OK. I'm going to have to do some fondueing now.

I don't think I've ever used my fondue pot.

But tiny rice krispie treats dipped in chocolate? Hot damn!!!
