Do you Fondue?

We went to Tulsa on Saturday to have an early Valentines Day. Shopped/walked around at Utica Square. We window shopped at Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Restoration Hardware...going to those stores is like flipping through catalogues for me...I love walking/looking through the stores, but very rarely find things practical enough, or inexpensive enough to purchase. Around 3:00 we went to see The Wedding Date ...a cute movie, sortof a Best Friend's Wedding meets backwards Pretty Woman. It's only about an hour and a half long, and its full of British humor, lots of little innuendos...but not unbearable (like Fockers was for me...). Definitely a chick flick, probably a renter. But it was cute.

The main purpose of our trip to Tulsa was dinner...at The Melting Pot, which just opened in the new Riverwalk area in Jenks. What a fun place! We had Spinach Artichoke Cheese Fondue, Chef's Salads, Coq au Vin style main course (where we "fondue-d" salmon, shrimp, chicken, steak, duck, potstickers, ravioli, and veggies - yum!), then milk chocolate with Bailey's Irish Cream fondue for desert. WOW...it was amazing, and so much food! A fun first Valentine's Day as a married couple. :)

Just a little word about my hubby...the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder" is definitely true...sometimes you don't realize how wonderful things really are until you take a step back and look at your situation from a different perspective. Two weeks was a long time for Andrew to be away, but it made our marriage stronger. Its easy to get caught in the day to day mundane-ness of life...but I'm really so fortunate to have a good job, live in a great town, have sweet friendships, and be in a happy marriage.

We've never been to The Melting Pot (or any other fondue restaurant). However, there is this mountaintop restaurant at Keystone Ski Resort called "Der Fondue Chessel" that's supposed to be amazing. It's an authentic Bavarian lodge with authentic Bavarian fondue. To get there, you have to ride on a gondola for about 25 minutes. That's a pretty cool way to get to a restaurant... 25 minutes in a gondola traveling up the mountain on a dark, snowy night.

Andrew, I'm fondue too (think about it for a minute and you'll get the pun). Glad you're back.

heeey! i've been to that keystone fondue place! it is so cool. the gondola ride is fun, and the restaurant is basically this HUGE room with loooooong tables and a large fireplace. kinda like a cafeteria. and they had a live trio playing. it's interesting to eat on top of a mountain at night when it's dark outside. fun.
