Last week's food challenge was fondue, and my honey really outdid himself. Valentine's Dinner started with a smooth, delicious cheese fondue with apples, pears, and strawberry walnut bread. It was the perfect way to start a meal - it was so good I had to stop myself from eating it all because I knew I'd be too full for the remaining 2 courses.
Next came beef, chicken sausage, mushrooms and a Coq Au Van fondue. It was amazing! It was so flavorful and I love the way fondue meals make you take your time.
Dessert did not disappoint. MIRAGE727 picked up a fondue fountain. We had several kinds of fruits to dip into this dark chocolate fountain. It felt so decadent, and yet I knew it was all healthy ingredients.
This was by far the best Valentine's Dinner I have ever had and a certain restaurant chain needs to step up their game or my hubby could put them out of business. Thanks, Darling!
Since Valentine's Day, our granddaughter spent the weekend with us and Mirage has been sick. Because we're doing a half marathon this coming Sunday (our 3rd in 3 months), he has requested to opt out of this week's challenge which I completely understand. So, Mirage's 2013 Weekly Food Challenge will resume next Monday. I hope everyone has a great week!
