Fondue Chinoise

Okay, so I’ve got almost two weeks of non-blogging. This week won’t be much better because I’ll be on a business trip from tomorrow until Thursday, so I figured I had to do at least some of it today and let OrangeX do the rest tomorrow to keep him busy while I’m away.

Right. So let’s scroll back to Saturday, February 26th where we invited a work colleague to have dinner with us. Her daughter was on skiing holidays with her ex, so what better time to get together. She was at our place around 7 pm and we started chatting about this and that, movies (we ended up lending her about 4 DVD’s out of our +/- 250 DVD collection) while enjoying a drink and a few snacks. We had prepared a fondue chinoise for dinner accompanied by lots of veggies and self-made curry-banana, cocktail and Orange’s unbeatable garlic sauce! We chatted and ate and chatted and ate until we realized that we were 1) full and about to burst and 2) we had totally forgotten to take pictures. BUT, we thought about it just in time to show you the slaughter effect! Berit even tried to get the last piece. As you can see, we did not want to stand in her way (had another pict, but unfortuntely, I blurred Berit :-( Sorry.)

While having dinner, of course Dale had to beg a little for some fresh meat (pork, beef and ostrich). Okay, he did get a few pieces, but he also got his favourite “desert”, namely, his multi-vitamin paste (commonly called “The Tube”).

We had a fun evening and all of a sudden it was almost 1 am, and Berit decided to leave. And at least Berit got to take a good chunk of chocolate cake home for the coming days. I hope we can do that again soon. It was "gezellig". (read more about this word in my next post ;-))

Sounds wonderful. We always forget to take pics too before eating it all. Dale cracks me up in this pic! And yes I'll stay tuned to hear about Gezellig... Does it have to do with Fasnacht?

Hehehe, way out of the direction. If you're hooked on Fasnacht, Fasnacht can probably also be "gezellig". :-) Read more in the next posts...

Ostrich Fondue....how continental!

I found a great tool for cataloging my DVD's (I've got almost 400), check out I very rarely will pay for what I consider "shareware" software....but this one is really well worth the fee.

Thanks Michael. We'll look it up!
