Hayden's Birthday Celebration!

Last night we celebrated Hayden's 14th birthday! I put his birthday survey on the fridge (see my post under Ideas dated Sept 5, 2007 called "Neat Idea" to see the survey) and he requested a fondue dinner and chocolate birthday cake with chocolate frosting! His order was filled and we had a wonderful dinner! Everyone was there except Grayson, he had to work at the gas station because he forgot to ask for it off :0(.

I had a pot of oil for deep frying shrimp, steak, vegetables and cheese. I also had a pot with a beer cheese sauce for dipping bread and vegetables. Brittany brought her fondue pot and we put chocolate in there for strawberries and bananas. It is a lot of prep time, and a messy dinner, but really good and really fun! We all were amazed at how quickly we got full too! I found my two pots at the thrift store. The first one I purchased I threw out because it had no temperature control and it just got hotter and hotter - very dangerous with the oil! The two that I have now both have temperature controls and we have no problem.

We are so thankful for Hayden! He has been such an amazing blessing!

Happy Birthday to Hayden. He sounds like a really great kid. It is so hard to see our youngest ones grow up. How great that he wanted fondue. We have a great fondue resturaunt here but it is very expensive. I have never seen a fondue pot that plugs in. I have two but mine just use an open flame. I can never keep it hot enough. I will have to look for one that plugs in.
Sounds like you have had a wonderful weekend!
