The fun began on Friday night with a Fondue Party at my sister and brother-in-law's house (Ashley and Brian). The party guests included Ashley and Brian (isn't it funny that we both married Brians?), their sweet child Maddox, and Josh and Lauren (my Brian's sister and soon to be brother-in-law). It was so fun! We dipped and dunked until we were stuffed to the brim. We had beef and chicken and pasta and veggies and breads and fruit and marshmallows, etc. etc. etc. This was great, and much cheaper than The Melting Pot, though that's a must do restaurant for everyone!
Then, on Saturday we made the hour drive to one of our favorite restaurants. Their burgers and fries are to-die-for, but their dessert selection is even better! Can you hear the calories piling on?
Here's Maddox with his XL hot dog.This was my meal. And this was a child-sized burger. What has America come to? Don't fret, I split those fries with Brian. And, now for dessert - turtle fudge cake. simply delectable. There are no words.
I love good weekends with good food.
(And, for those of you wanting to know. I served homemade lasagna, asiago garlic bread, green salad, and homemade cheesecake for my MIL's birthday. And, I was just too busy to take pics. Maybe next time.)
