Busy Nights Real Food

  A supper club review
Well, we had our first meeting of the 2 Drinks Minimum Supper Club last night at my house and it was a success. We realized we had way too much food, but it was all wonderful. Our theme was all things dipable. As the host I was in charge of the main course. I decided we'd take a step back in time and have fondue. I grew up with my mom doing fondue and I always loved it. I guess the cook was there all along, huh? Well she always did the oil one, I love it. But tonight I wanted to get a little fancy tonight so I made Bacchus Fondue (its basically wine and chicken bouillon). It was good with the chicken, steak, shrimp and mushrooms. But the real creme de la creme was the Green Cheese with Fresh Herbs. Holy cow was it good. It is wine, Gouda, and some herbs. I served it with bread, summer sausage, broccoli, and cauliflower. It was great (the clean up of the fondue pot was not).

Also there...Crab cakes, hummus, veggie dips, feta artichoke dip, fruit salsa with cinnamon chips, crab dip, chili dip, Kahlua Dip and chocolate fondue. I am really sorry if I missed anything.

Funkbobito and I will be having fajitas for a while with all of our left over meat. But that's okay, I love fajitas, really.

Well, I do have some non-food related news. I graduated from grad school in May and have been job searching since then (and some before). Well, the job search has been going pretty slow and I have been living on a fairly tight budget for the last few months. Well, I was offered a management position at my current job. Its not in the field I eventually want to work in, but I will be able to afford to really look for the job I want rather than having to take the first thing offered. So my schedule will become a bit more full, but at least now I can say I have a full time job. And I actually may have to close less often than I do now. So wish me luck and I am sure I will have some good tales to tell as this new adventure begins.
Yay! Congratulations and good luck!

Fondue - yum! My Mom used to do that too :)
Congrats on the promotion! Glad to see your first supper club went well!
That fondue looks great - think I just may add it to our dinner tomorrow night. And here I was going to keep things simple...
