Sometimes you just have to take a moment and realize, your friends are what can help make you happy. They’re there for you when you need them, they care about you, and honestly, sometimes you just need someone to watch Pitch Perfect with, even though it’s a silly movie.
Sometimes you just need to laugh. Like really laugh. Not be afraid to let out that body-shaking laugh, or snort when you laugh, or laugh so hard you cry.
That’s in part why we did a ladies lunch. A fondue ladies lunch at that, because .. well, we wanted to.
And because I had the wine on hand…
And the cheese was easy to get…
And who doesn’t like bread, chicken sausage, and veggies dunked in hot cheese?
White Wine Fondue
1 cup of white wine
2 cups of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 cups of Monterey Jack Cheese
1 tablespoon of flour
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 loaf of hearty French or Italian bread
1 link of pre-cooked chicken sausage, sliced and reheated in a pan
1 head of broccoli
(You can probably feed four with this amount of food, heads up.)
Heat wine in fondue pot and cook over medium heat until bubbly. Turn heat to low and gradually stir in cheeses. Add spices. Add flour to thicken the mixture. Do not let fondue boil. Cook another three to five minutes. Serve with sides with slow burning lamp underneath. Enjoy!
