Do You Fondue?

To celebrate LA's birthday this week we had fondue for supper.  Do you ever do fondue as a family?  It's lots of fun and we all enjoy it.  There are always lots of fondue pots at garage sales I've noticed, so it would be easy to start your own family fun!  We have to use 2 fondue pots for our family.  I'm not sure if we are doing it the proper way, but this is how we learned in college--

Warm up a pot of chicken broth on the stove before you start, so it's good and hot.  Place broth in fondue pot and light fire underneath.

We put out bowls of carrots, broccoli, mushrooms (my favorite), and cut up steak or little meatballs.  Then everyone can cook whatever sounds good to them.  Any other vegetables would work too.  We have found it's nice to have 2 forks per person so you don't have to wait so long between bites.

I always make a cheese sauce and a garlic sauce to dip the cooked vegetables and meat in.  Here is the garlic sauce recipe:

Garlic Sauce for Fondue

3/4 c. mayonnaise
1/8 c. oil
1 t. mustard
1 t. catsup
dash parsley
garlic powder to taste

Stir and enjoy!
