We are in the thick of raising children. That is exactly how I would describe us and it is lovely! There is nothing bad about it. Of course it makes it more difficult to do some things like for example GO OUT ON A DATE!
Now, I don’t want it to sound like we can never ever get out. That is just not true. Sometimes my parents will come up and we will sneak out for a dinner. And other times we will put the kids in bed and have a babysitter come over to watch the monitor while we head out for an hour or two. BUT either way, it is difficult to get out of the house for an uninterrupted date.
We have become good at creating a date at home. A nice, relaxing one that would only be better if we had a fireplace (someday). Last year I wrote a post all about our favorite kind of at home date night…Fondue! Ben and I are constantly looking to change it up a bit and try new recipes so I went on a hunt so that when this Valentine’s Day comes around, I am prepared with the ability to host our own at home date night!
All you need is a Fondue Pot to get started:) Oh and the ingredients for these 13 fondue recipes too!
The things that you can dip in a cheese fondue are endless but some of my favorites are carrots, broccoli, apples, and really good breads!
