Do you Fondue?
If you have a random fondue pot sitting around gathering dust, you should stop that and use it. We did with marvelous results.
Recipe for Chocolate Fondue (as made by E, because he's awesome):
2 Cups Milk Chocolate chips (we used ghiradelli)
3 Tbsp Heavy Cream
2 Tbsp liqueur (or red wine if you have none)
Dash of Cinnamon
Heat up the chocolate chips on moderate heat in the microwave, stirring them to melt them. Then add the heavy cream, stirring the entire time. Then add the liqueur and stir again, then add cinnamon. Then dip anything and everything you can find into the fondue. We used strawberries, Mandarin Oranges, apple slices, and marshmallows. It makes way more than enough for two people.
For the record, My favorite dipping item was the orange slices, but E liked the marshmallows. I found them a bit too rich.
The fondue is enough food to make a meal if you don't get hung up on the whole finish your vegetables before you get any dessert thing.
in other news, my job/school situation is a joke. and if you don't like med students then definitely go to a private hospital because we're not allowed to touch ANYTHING. the residents hardly are.
