For Christmas this year, my cousin gave me a fondue set! I had never owned one before and was excited to think of the possibilities of using it for entertaining and other creative meal ideas.
Why not drag out that old fondue set you may have lurking in your cupboard, dust it off and try the delicious fondue recipe for this week? Maybe a special meal for two or double the recipe and have a "family fondue" fun night to celebrate Valentine's Day this week!!!
And if you didn't get to read the story on children in France, I'm leaving it up one more week. What can get more romantic than pictures and stories of France!
