Valentine’s Day isn’t my favorite holiday. I don’t decorate for it and we don’t exchange cards or gifts. I didn’t even have festive kitchen towels until last year! Now that I’m a mom I’ll probably get more into the holiday. Especially once the little man hits school and has to have a Valentine’s Box. Assuming schools are still doing that tradition in 2019!
That being said, one tradition that I have implemented after getting married is having fondue! We received two fondue pots from our wedding and kept both of them.
You may recall that last year I didn’t post a fondue recipe. I promise you I’m not making this up for this blog post. (If you follow me on twitter you might have noticed that during last weekend’s #SundaySupper twitter chat I spent an hour answering questions with “fondue!”) I simply didn’t have any pictures from our previous years! And if I could have remember what recipes I found and followed it would have been a miracle. In 2012 I even did both savory cheese and sweet chocolate fondues – that’s the beauty of having kept both fondue sets.
I only did slightly better last year. I did pull out my camera and had a lot of fun taking pictures. But… I forgot to save what recipe I followed! Not that they’re very different from each other. White chocolate. Cream. Amaretto. Except that because the alcohol wouldn’t cook out of the fondue and I was pregnant I took the conservative approach and used almond extract instead.
I wish you all a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend, however you decide to celebrate. Don’t forget to tell the people in your life how much you love them!
