I normally do an absolutely horrible job of taking photos, but this weekend I tried really hard to capture what we were up to with my trusty iPhone!
Once CAhusband got home from golf we had a relaxing afternoon on the couch watching football. Piper loves to snuggle with her dad!
Saturday night we decided to head out to dinner at our favorite restaurant, and it was so chilly and rainy I got to bust out my favorite chunky cardigan and boots! Yes, this monumental occasion deserves a photo, I was thrilled to be able to bundle up!
Sunday we did some major cleaning and organizing around the house! Piper and Reilly even managed to get lint-rolled in the process as a joke, and I was shocked by the amount of hair we were able to get off of them. Their hair is literally everywhere in our house, so it can't hurt!
We also made our favorite fondue, that we've been craving forever! It is seriously the yummiest snack ever, and is always a big hit with guests.
Brooke and Alan brought over their adorable little dog and all of the dogs played like crazy. It was great to catch up, and Brooke even helped us take a Christmas card photo, which was no easy task!
Here's the fondue recipe:
1 c. White Wine
7 oz. Gruyere Cheese, shredded
7 oz. Emmentaler Cheese, shredded
7 oz. Sharp Cheddar, shredded
1 T flour
1 clove garlic
- In a saucepan, bring white wine to a boil
- In a mixing bowl, combine all three cheeses and toss with flour
- Once wine is boiling, slowly add the cheese, stirring constantly
- Rub the bottom on your warm fondue pot the the cut side of garlic
- Transfer melted cheese into the fondue pot to keep warm
Our favorite dippers for this fondue are:
cubed french bread
We had a wonderful long weekend, and now I'm just trying to brace myself for the long week ahead!
Only 6.5 more work days 'til Thanksgiving break, YAY!
Did you have a long weekend in honor of Veteran's Day? What were you up to?
