We had a great night last night with some of our closest friends (and my sister too!). We hosted a fondue party here at our house. Most years, we host our fondue in the weeks leading up to Christmas but this year everyone was busy. So we talked about doing it later in the New Year. Then, some how, word was that we were going to host New Years Eve so I figured, why not combine the two ideas and host a NYE fondue?
Everyone pitched in with the food and we had hot broth, cheese, a "hot plate" plus chicken, beef, shrimp, bread and veggies. Instead of kissing the person to your left or right when you dropped your item in the fondue pot, we decided to do Jello Shots. Who knew that 11 people would go through 6 boxes of Jello before 9pm?
We were sure to have someone available for driving friends home if they needed it... no one was in too bad of shape. We ate, watched Canada beat the US in World Jr Hockey, played a game and had a great time. It was a lovely way to bring in the new year!
