On January 2nd, we finally returned to our fondue. There were many, fairly easy cheese fondue recipes online, but friends recommended the prepackaged fondues available at the grocery, so I bought it, along with "Fondue for Two" dish and burner set.
The box came with two packages of cheese fondue. Each package is 1.5 servings. As instructed, I started one package of cheese on the stove top, cooking until bubbling. In the meantime, I roasted baby potatoes and broccoli.
The potatoes and broccoli were joined by green apple and fresh bread. We paired it with a bottle of white wine with a picture of cheese fondue on the label. It seemed appropriate.
We're looking forward to having fondue at least two or three more times this winter, but no later. Apparently fondue comes and goes with the season. Come spring, only tourists are clogging their digestive track with gooey cheese.
Otherwise, 2014 has been slow and lazy. Henry began anti-depressants on Monday. After a week, he's definitely calmer. We're seeing slow, steady improvements in his behavior, but still can't leave more than a few minutes. The vet said to give the medication a month to take full effect and then an additional month of behavior modification training. Yikes! Hopefully he moves a bit quicker, because stuck in a temporary flat is the last place I want to spend our first two months in Switzerland. We have our fingers and toes crossed!
In the meantime, the Sleachmours wish you a very happy 2014!!
