I have the greatest friends!!!


 While in Houston, my friends celebrated my upcoming
big birthday by taking me to the Melting Pot for dinner.....one of my favorite places!!
Fondue is sooooo much fun!!!


We started with a cheese fondue......YUMMO!!!!
They bring you bread, apples and veggies to dip.  This could be a meal in itself!!


Then came the main course.  A spread of beef, chicken, salmon and shrimp that cooks in an amazing beef/red wine broth......so good!

Of course you MUST end the evening with chocolate fondue.  This is the dipping plate and my birthday candle.....strawberries, bananas, pound cake, brownies, cheesecake and marshmellows....oh my!!

We chose the chocolate turtle fondue!  Here is a video of the waiter making it at the table.  Sorry it is sideways, I couldn't figure out how to rotate it!!!

What a great night we had laughing, joking about "age", and reminiscing. These ladies have been my friends for 20 years and they know me so well.  They know my love of a good party out with the girls, they know when I need encouragement and how to give it, they know when I need to be held accountable and they push me to be a better follower of Christ.....I love them!

Thanks guys for a wonderful evening and a great weekend!!!
I miss you already!!!!

How fun! I absolutely love the Melting Pot! I could totally just eat the cheese & chocolate, skipping the meat/broth dips.
