Cheese - a girl's best friend

I am a self-proclaimed cheese addict. But, hey, aren't we all? Meagan even sent me a cookbook for my birthday called, Cheese, Glorious Cheese and I got to eat fondue yesterday. Of course, it wasn't all cheese - we had chocolate, too!

I think I'm still walking around this morning with a full belly. Even as we waited at the bar they had cheese spread and crackers. Immediately I knew this was my kind of place. We started off with a cheese board and the cheese fondue with assorted breads and fruit (and salad) and then moved into the entree. Joe had beef tenderloin and I had an assortment of beef tenderloin, chicken breast, lobster, scallops and shrimp. (Big eater, I know.) Of course there was also an assortment of vegetables for us to cook with our meat in the cooking oil and lots of sauces for us to try. After that we moved into the coffee with chocolate fondue and pound cake/fruit phase. Needless to say, I may not eat today.

It was a great birthday dinner. The best part of the meal was an aged Wisconsin swiss cheese. Pure joy!
