Sonia, Andrea, Tammy, Melanie
Rich was working on Saturday night, doing a food and wine pairing for the folks who were the high bidders at our Channel 8 auction a couple of weeks ago. So I decided it was finally time to have these gals over as I have been promising for many months. We settled on a fondue party, which was great fun. Melanie brought a crab fondue and a cheesy fondue while I made one of dark and milk chocolate, cream and marshmallows.
Everything was yummy and we had lots of good conversation and laughs. Andrea used to live in our house as a kid so she shared some of her memories of the place. Of course, it's completely different now and much smaller (since it used to be a full house and is divided into duplexes). Funny how she thought it was so small and we think it is so big compared to our last apartment.
We loved our fondue so much that we think we might have to have a regular fondue gathering.
After as much as we ate last night, it was a good thing we'd signed up for the Polar Bear Run/Walk today! It was pretty cold but overall a nice day to be outside.
Lots of emperor geese swam nearby
Yay! We did it! We walked, didn't run (well, Sonia did jog a bit) so we were pulling up the rear. Still, it was good exercise and we were proud. Then we went out for lunch. haha
