Tonight we enjoyed our yearly fondue! It was delicious, but we didn’t have the chocolate fondue for dessert. Just the cheese fondue main course, which is fine with me since I’m not a huge fan of sweets. Because we were pretty busy this year, our dinner table wasn’t fancy, but the food was delicious as always. 😊❤️

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Tonight we had a wonderful fondue dinner at home. We have a family Valentine’s tradition to eat fondue, but because of Mariko’s schedule yesterday, we had to delay it for a night. But we definitely can’t miss our annual fondue dinner!

As always, we have two pots of cheese, one with wine for Mariko and I, and the other with no alcohol for the kiddos. Every year they try the “adult” fondue, and scrunch up their faces at the taste. “Horrible” was heard this time around. But eventually, I think they will prefer the wine and cheese fondue. Until that day, it’s all for Mariko and me!

The ingredients for dipping were simple this year, with a yummy chicken/spinach sausage, potato, broccoli, carrots, and homemade baguette cubes. It was a yummy dinner!

Tonight we celebrated Valentines Day as we normally do: by enjoying a yummy fondue dinner! I don’t know when we started this tradition exactly, but it’s been at least several years.

For the main course, we have two cheese fondues, one for the kids with no alcohol, and then the adult’s version which includes white wine. We use Emmentaler, Gruyere, and Cheddar, but I don’t remember which goes into which, but both are delicious! This year we had bratwurst, baguette cubes, apples, cauliflower, carrots, and potatoes for dipping. It doesn’t look like a lot of food when you put it on the table, but it is really filling!

For the dessert portion, we had a chocolate fondue with marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, and brownies.

I only had a little of the dessert (I was so full) but the chocolate/banana combo was super. 😍

I hope you had a nice Wednesday!

みんなさんこんばんは。How’s it going?

Tonight we celebrated Valentine’s Day (a day late because Mariko had to work last night) with our annual fondue dinner.

Mariko always prepares a yummy cheese fondue, with bread, sausage, cauliflower, and potato. This year, we also had asparagus, carrots, apple, and ravioli! In the photo, you can see there are two cheeses, one for the kids and one, with wine added, for the adults. 😄🍷

And after the cheese fondue is finished, we’ll have a chocolate fondue, with strawberries, banana, apple, and marshmallows. 😍 おいしかった!

I look forward to our Valentine’s fondue dinner every February, and this year’s version didn’t disappoint!

I hope you had a nice Wednesday.
