Apples, Banannas, Strawberries

Our New Year's Eve is very low key. We always stay home with the kids, and we do a chocolate fondue. This is a tradition we began probably eight years ago.

Because, we got home yesterday afternoon from Great Wolf Lodge, and we were exhausted we decided not to do the fondue last night, but wait to do it today. On the way home we stopped to get the chocolate and the fruit. Strawberries are $5.oo for the clamshell right now, but we had to have them. After all what is chocolate fondue without strawberries?

I can remember when strawberries were not available year round here, and when they did show up in the stores in the winter time, you couldn't believe they were there. They also tasted awful, but you wanted them so bad. Our strawberry season is so short here in Ontario, but our local berries are so delicious. (Okay this is way off topic now)

There was chocolate on our faces, and fingers. What a yummy treat, looking forward to next year already.

Oh, YUM!! What a great tradition!! I love chocolate fondue! It reminds me of a favorite restaurant of mine and Wayne's, The Melting Pot. It is a fondue joint that is SOOOO fab! Wish I had some chocolate on my face right now, too!

That looks delicious. What a fantastic tradition. I've never made chocolate fondue, but it looks like I need to start!

Thanks for stopping by Finer Things today.
