Happy New Year

3 01 2009

Here’s to a year of good grub!  We rang in the New Year in our traditional fashion–fondue and board games.  This is our third year of fondue.  I made one pot of traditional Swiss, one pot of “pizza fondue” (from my guilty pleasure Taste of Home–it’s just a jar of spaghetti sauce and a package of grated Italian blend cheese.  Almost criminally easy and the kids practically climbed into the pot to get the last bite), and a pot of Bagna Cauda (I made it vegetarian by using sundried tomatoe paste instead of anchovies).   We paired the meal with Rodney Strong’s 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon.  It was fantastic and I was crushed to have a slightly queasy stomach that prevented my overindulgence.

Desert was one pot of chocolate fondue and one of butterscotch, served with fruit and gingersnaps for dipping.  Yum.  And then I vowed never to eat again.  That’s why we only have fondue on New Year’s Eve.
