Super fondue

I realize that we have been back from Europe now for a couple of weeks and I still haven't posted anything about our trip. Well, I still haven't written anything about it yet, so you'll just have to wait some more. In the meantime, if you know Carolyn and Brian, you can find some pictures here.

And you can also feast your eyes on our super traditional Superbowl dinner.

That's right, we had fondue! Notice our impromptu set up. That's quality!

Here's Isaac enjoying the cheesy goodness.

This picture's for you Brian. We followed your expert bread cutting advice and I think we did pretty well (minus the nice serving basket and our bread was unfortunately fresh out of the oven - damn Whole Foods and their desire for freshness.)

Here's some proof that we actually watched the Superbowl.

So, our first at home fondue experience was pretty good. We were able to assemble lots of the necessary ingredients (pre-mixed wine and cheese and that dried/cured beef from Trader Joe's and cocktail onions and pickles and french bread from Whole Foods - we totally forgot about the little boiled potatoes). We picked up a free little brochure on our way out of Whole Foods on fondue, which may come in handy in the future. Next time, hopefully we'll be using this or this pot instead of the improvisational setup we used. Pretty good considering we're in the US, but we were particularly missing the great company we had in Europe!
