2010 - Hard to Believe

After all the prepping Emma and I did on Wednesday night, we had a wonderful fondue meal New Year's Eve.  We had one pot of chicken stock and one pot of beef stock with two garlic cloves and a bay leaf added to each.  We let these come to a boil and used them to cook our cut up potatoes, carrots, button mushrooms, and broccoli, as well as our chicken, teriyaki marinated beef, and shrimp.  Mmmm Good!

We made a cheese fondue of (2) 8 oz bags of Vermont Cheddar Cheese, 1/4 cup flour, a 12 oz can of Bud Light. 1/2 stick of butter, 1/4 cup of milk, 1/2 tsp ground mustard, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt.  Mix all of the ingredients together and let melt over medium low heat.  Stir frequently.  We added 1/3 cup of bacon bits - yummy!  We used the cheese for dipping bread, broccoli and cauliflower.

Emma melted chocolate for dessert.  We sliced strawberries, bananas, apples, and marshmallows to dip in the chocolate.  What a finish!

Needless to say, nobody went home hungry.

Happy New Year!  I hope it's a year filled with blessings for all.
