Family Weekend

Every year around Valentines I send out invitation/questionnare's to my family. I ask them to fill in the blanks to what their favorite food is, and then I invite them to attend a Special Dinner just for them.
In past years, I usually have turned it into a Mystery Meal...using all the foods they said were their favorites. It's alot of fun....for them and me!
Especially when their favorite food consists of a root beer float, Strawberry Cheescake, pancakes and spaghetti!
Needless to say we've had a few "interesting meals" in years past!

This year I decided to send out a different type of invitation...and got them to write down what their favorite food was in every category....Meat, Veggie, Fruit, and Drink. Seeing as they're older now...I turned it into an "Everything Fondue"...meat and seafood, Cheese Fondue with veggies and bread, and of course the Chocolate Fondue.

Fondue Fritters

Happy Heart Family Time

I love Memory Making with my kiddos!

My favorite cheese fondue recipe:
