brad and i have been married for exactly 20 days now, and in celebration of that (very random) milestone, i decided to make a semi-romantic dinner for us last night. it was made less romantic by the fact that we watched the office while eating it, but i’m going to choose to ignore that fact.
earlier this week, julie posted about the cheesy beer fondue that she made for the secret recipe club. as soon as i saw it, i knew this was something that brad would love (and that i’d like a lot too!).
it was on the menu last night.
i made no changes to what julie did and served it with beer bread, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, and an apple.
the fondue pot was a wedding gift from our friends, and we were so excited to try it out!
we also had wine with dinner.
i got to try out our new wine pourer from crate & barrel (purchased with a wedding gift card!).
it worked perfectly! usually i end up licking the side of the wine bottle after i pour to get the drips of wine. this time there were no drips! magic.
capone was nearby during the whole meal.
but he was being a good boy, so brad gave him a couple apple slices! spoiled puppy…
doesn’t his neck look much better? it’s healing up very well!
we were both very satisfied after our indulgent date night. at least we had plenty of veggies, right?!?
have you ever had fondue?
when i was younger, we would have fondue every year on new years eve. we’d drink sparkling grape juice and have toasts late at night. this year for new years we recreated our fondue tradition with our friends and some real wine! i am a big fan of fondue. it’s such a fun, social, meal idea!
