Can YOU Fon-DUE?

We spent about 4 hours after church preparing the broth, sauces and meats for our fancy fondue party. These dinner parties require lots of preparation, but it is worth it; Probably once, maybe twice a year. It's a lot of prep work, and a lot of dishes.
But Very tasty!
Dane and Korine brought our first course: Cheese fondue.
Scott and I served the main course: meat!

And Vess and Angie provided the fixings for the best course of all: Chocolate fondue with all the fruit you can handle.
Some of you may wonder how you can eat a full dinner off of skewers. Well let me tell you:
Very Slowly.

You must only have a fondue party with friends who can shoot the breeze for hours. Because it takes about 5 minutes to cook each bite of meat. Maybe you're wondering if you can really get full off some caulifower dipped in decadent cheese, meat cooked to perfection in hot broth, and a chocolate strawberry on a stick. The answer is: YOU CAN. And you will. We were all so stuffed we had to have a 20 minute rest before we took the dog for a walk.

Oh, I WISH I could have a fondue party. Maybe at Thanksgiving??

Looks delicious!

The Fondue Party rocked, and it was delicious! What! What! Thank you V&A and D&K for coming and bringing food.

Maybe next time we should just double the chocolate recipe and dip everything in it. Who really cares what course it is?
