Fondue party!

My friend Nicole hosted a fondue party at her home for several of her friends. Other than visiting the Melting Pot once I have not had fondue. She did an excellent job from creating amazing dishes right down to the fall decor!

Our first course was cheese fondue with a pub style cheese mixture that contained beer (yum!) as well as an Italian cheese mixture (even yummier). We had our choice of carrots, apples, and two different kinds of bread to dip.

Our second course was the salad course. A beautiful combination of field greens, walnuts, grapes, apples and a fantastic dressing. Umm yea I had myself two heaping helpings.

Moving on to our entree course which was nothing short of outrageous. We feasted on keilbasa, marinated shrimp, marinated pork, marinated beef, and marinated chicken. In our pots were a combination of vegetables such as mushrooms, broccoli, and we even had baby potatoes. Situated around our pots were many dipping sauces that included a green goddess, bbq, horseradish, brushetta, and more

If all that wasn't enough she even made a dessert course. Whew I don't know how she prepped it all because I would have needed a two-day nap. She created a Toublerone chocolate fondue and an out-of-this-world creamy caramel (thud!). To dip in those fattening delicious beasts were almond cake, brownies, marshmallows, strawberries, rice krispie treats, bananas, and more.

I swear I don't know how she does it all. I don't have an ounce of cooking skills she has, let alone the baking she does. Kudos to a fabulous meal and I hope she does another one and invites me (hint hint).

O.M.G. I totally forget to tell you all that she even made a homemade Sangria that was to die for!
