Fondue Party

For you foreign bitches who think that Canada is all ice and snow, here’s today’s temperature in both F (Foreigners) and C (Canadian)…


Hot enough to melt cheese.

Fondue party, anyone?

  4. While I adore things cheesy, the hosts crusty cheese is not my favorite. Now Norma just loves to dig out crusty cheese - especially when its been brewing for days - with his talented tongue.

  7. You know double-dippers are just lurking in the shadows, like pedophiles at a park. Kabuki eschews family food events. If god wanted us to all eat out of the same pot he would not have given us plates. And silverwear as well, no pointy metal spears for kabuki. someone could lose an eye

  10. You have my sympathy as the temperature today in Florida only reached 80...I said 80! Tomorrow I shall wear my Peggy Guggenheim sunglasses and wig to the beach in your honor.

  12. Dear MJ, There's a friggin heat wave across the entire continent of North America except here in Vancouver! It was warmer in the ARCTIC than here on the Wet Coast today! I got the fireplace going for gods sake... I'd kill for a hot, sultry night in Montreal!

  13. It's grey, rainy and chilly here in Norfolk.

    My mum used to do a meat fondue. She'd fill the fondue with oil and provide platters of diced steak, mushrooms, peppers. You pop the steak etc on the end of a fork, pop it in the oil. Yummy.

    She used to serve with crusty bread, sauces and salad yummy.

    I suggest this as the dairy-free alternative.

    *runs off to dig out her fodue kit*

  14. Oh to be speared on a long-handled fork and gently dipped or swirled in a continuous motion.
    I will pass on the crusty cheese in the bottom though.

  15. BITCHES: READ THIS to find out why I haven’t been online since I posted the Fondue Party.

    I’ve been up ALL night.

    If any of you are looking for me, I’ve retired to the Cheese Room for a nap.

    Oh, and would somebody please tell Savannah that there was a Humidex warning.

    Oh, and if any of you choose to click on the link that AyeM8y left, you’ll see him in a wig and Peggy Guggenheim sunglasses. Worth the price of admission.

    Goodnight. I’ll have nightmares about AyeM8y chasing me through a thunderstorm now.

  16. "why I haven’t been online ... I’ve been up ALL night"

    The Mistress is an ambulance chaser?

  17. I find this weather stuff fascinating, and I mean it in a sincere way and not in a "just trying to make conversation until something interesting happens" way. It's been hotter than hell here lately but even we haven't gotten to 40C, topping out at only 38C.

    The word "humidex" amuses me but sadly I can make no dirty puns out of it.

  18. It's battleship grey clouds here with patchy blue sky, reminiscent of a John Constable painting.

    No dinner party is complete without this with classics such as Chanson D'Amour, Annie's Song and the lovely Forever And Ever.

  19. Good luck with Wednesday and Thursday!
    I had a brief power cut here for five minutes due to extreme dizzle, if that's any consolation?

  20. P.S Mr Pirate seems to look good in anything.

  21. Here in Texass tbe heat seems worse than usual; I seem to be in a permanent state of anger. If someone offered me a breadstick dripping with hot cheese I would have to stab them with the fork.

  22. It managed to get to 10 oC here today. Those storms look fierce. Welcome to the world of climate change..

    The cheese room? Stop eating the furniture you lot!... You don't know who's been sitting on it.... But then again you probably do....

    *shoves fork to the bottom of pot searching for crusty bits*

  23. BITCHES: Overnight a lot of other people’s junk blew into my yard.

    One of the many reasons I never had kids is because I didn’t want ugly ass Fisher-Price crap in my backyard.

    Or worse…Fisher-Price knockoffs.

    It is now IN my backyard and I don’t know who it belongs to but it is going to the curb.

    Thanks to the link that Mitzi left, (70's Dinner Party (Music To Fondue To) I have fondue party music to clean up by.

    I’m not certain I ever want to hear I Love to Love ever again, however. She appears to be performing in Frankfurt. Is she singing in German and they’ve dubbed in the English? Why is the room spinning?

    I shall visit you all later.

  24. Ha Ha!! Tina Charles! Please make her stop.

  25. I don't believe crusty cheese is a good thing around here.

    I remember that platter of hors d'oeuvres!

  26. Hells bells MJ .... i'm in your neck 'o the woods ALL THE TIME! lol

    I heard that Cheap Trick barely made it off stage at Bluesfest before the stage blew across the street. =(

    If it makes you feel any better, I too am in the pits of 40+ hell!

  27. Interesting approach to a three way.

  28. BITCHES: Needless to say, I haven’t had a chance to pop round to your blogs. Let’s hope tomorrow is a calmer day.
