    We used to in the 80s.

    We haven’t in such a long time and I don’t know why! Oh yeah, b/c it’s messy and takes forever to eat, but it’s soooooo good!

  3. Joy says:

    We haven’t for a really long time. I love to eat like that and don’t mind the time it takes. It’s more like snacking but that dang oil gets everywhere.

    Only once in high school

    Years and years ago with my parents…gosh…that is long ago 😦

    No. I think this prof I babysit for did it one time when we were invited over. All I can remember about that is that there wasn’t nearly enough food! And I’m not exactly a heavy eater.

    I used to like cheese sauces, but I kind of got over that. Not worth the calories. I’ll still eat a good casserole au gratin, of course.

    Yes we do Melting Pot in our town, or some with appetizers as fruit with chocolate and cheese

    Steve’s uncle LOVES to fondue, so we used to do it at Steve’s parent’s house every time he came home. (His uncle is mentally handicapped, and lives in a group home). We don’t do it very much, anymore, and I’m kind of sorry for that. Steve’s mom would put the old vinyl table cloth on the table, then put newspapers under the fondue pot. She usually used Strip Steaks, and man! did they turn out good. Even better was the last time we did it (which would be like three years ago), when we used the venison that Steve got. That was even better than the steak.

    I’m going to have to suggest that we do that again. I think Josh would really get a kick out of it.

  9. Joy says:

    I think I’d like to do this again soon too. The last time we did this it was a football Sunday. We did have cheese in one pot but we had beef, chicken and shrimp and then we had some veggies too. Mushrooms, cauliflower and broccoli. This is more than just eating though. If you only eat to get full and don’t enjoy your food and conversation, then it’s not for you. I think it’s really fun but like mentioned above, it is very messy and it’s also very time consuming to get everything ready because everything is in very small pieces.

      Well, I’m not an expert, but it seems there ought to be at least enough food so people aren’t starving at the end of the meal. If I remember correctly, we each got 1 peice of meat (maybe 1.5″ by 1″), a few green beans, and maybe a small roll of bread. Is that standard?

    • Joy says:

      No that’s not standard at all and I’ve never done it like that. We just cut up a bunch of food and put it in bowls and each person takes what they want and you eat for hours like that. You eat as much as you want. You cook, eat, cook, eat but the fondue pots are small so only a couple of people can cook at the same time. You can’t overfill the pots or the stuff doesn’t cook right. We always use 3 or 4 pots.

      • SKL says:

        I just figured maybe they had some sort of planning or storage mishap. Funny how I remembered something like that, though. I think that incident was what made me believe that when entertaining, it’s always better to have too much than too little.

        • SKL says:

          And speaking of “too much,” I have already eaten two of the four pecan rolls I bought for Christmas treats. Dang, those are good, but I need to control myself!

    • Phyllis says:

      Joy, that sounds really good!!!! No, I’ve never done a fondue, but the customers are beginning to ask about sauces and stuff again so it’s probably coming back around. People say if we wait long enough everything comes around again. Guess they’re right! 🙂

    Only at the in laws and it’s been a very long time.
