is it rude to lick the pot?

i love to eat (i’m sure that doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows me)! this past weekend dave and i had a fantastic food experience at the melting pot (and yes, it was an experience). i decided to surprise him for our date night and it was killing him not knowing where we were going (and i was loving it. aren’t surprises the best? i *love* them). he asked for clues and these were the three he got:

1. we’ve never been there before
2. i might actually be more excited about the place than you will be
3. we’ve never been before because it is too expensive
needless to say, he didn’t figure it out.

we had so much fun and *everything* was *amazing!* i am salivating just thinking about it all…the spinach artichoke cheese fondue (so good with vegetables and apples…who knew). and of course the steak, chicken, salmon, shrimp...mmmm!

but by far the s’mores chocolate fondue was the highlight of the evening (trust me, it tasted better than the picture looks). it didn’t matter that i was already full, i couldn’t get enough. in the end the “i’m so stuffed i feel a little sick” feeling was sooo worth it!

to top it all off we didn’t pay a dime, thanks to the generous gift card from a vendor i worked with. we even walked out with $25 cash in our pocket…the balance on the card! it really doesn’t get much better than that!

WE LOVE THE MELTING POT!!!! Sometimes we just go for a salad and dessert! We should go together sometime!! How are you guys? Did you buy a house? How is Dave liking his new job? We should have you over for dinner, I am out of town for the next two Sundays, but we should get together after that. Have a great Fall day!!!

Okay, so I haven't blogged in forever, so I'm way behind in everyones' posts. Just have to say that Danny and I have planned for months already that this is where we're going for our anniversary - hello, in Dec. We think that occasion is splurge-worthy for how much it's going to cost (I've heard it's sooo pricey). We love food too and we can't wait. Glad you had fun.
