Do You Fondue?

To celebrate our anniversary this year, we kept it low key with dinner and a movie. We saw Toy Story 3 - so good! I laughed, I cried, I loved it! If you haven't seen it yet - its a must! After the movie we enjoyed a scrumdidlyumptious dinner at The Melting Pot. It's definitely a splurge but worth every penny! Since we were celebrating an anniversary, our server moved us to one of their more secluded booths reserved for special occasions. It was just the two of us - very romantic. I'll let the pictures do the talking:
That was my first drink of the night... a Yin & Yang Martini!! Talk about presentation eh?
We toasted to many more years to come with a delicious bottle of champagne.
Our first course: Fiesta Cheese Fondue. It was served with bread, tortilla chips, veggies and my favorite, green apples. The cheese was followed by salad which I forgot to take a picture of =(
Next was the main course. Again I forgot to photograph it until after we ate half of it. It consisted of sushi grade Ahi tuna, lobster, key lime shrimp, and vegetable dumplings. It was so fun trying all the different dipping sauces.
And also an assortment of veggies.
The main course was followed by the best course: dessert! We had the milk chocolate fondue with Grand Marnier and an assortment of yummy sweets to dip!
We were rather warm and glowing by the end of the night from sitting around the simmering pot. It was such a fun night!


  1. Happy (belated) Anniversary!

  2. it looks like you really had a great time!
    I love the melting pot!

  3. Happy 3rd Anniversary to the both of you! Looks like your evening was FABULOUS! Many more to you both.

  4. I never know where to leave my response if someone leaves my blog with a question, so I'm putting it here & there. ;-)


    I'm still learning. This is where I learned how to do it:

    I used to block on the bed, but I like the blocking surface they have at the lys better. It's almost like a Styrofoam with a smooth, water repellent surface. I really like it.

    I've blocked shawls with the string method (see link) and I've blocked them using pins for the straight top-section, too. I personally prefer the pins, although you have to use a lot of them.

    Hope that helps.

  5. Congratulations! Wishing you many, many more. :-D
