The show we were watching was all about fondue. What caught Oliver's eye was putting the food on wooden skewers before dipping it into sauce. He was in luck, as I was planning on heading to the grocery store. I told him to make me a list of what I needed to buy.
He made pictures of strawberries, chicken, bananas, bread, etc. We headed to the store, and used his list as a guide to my shopping. Several other patrons stopped to stare at my grocery list, and I just smiled. Back home we cooked some chicken, chopped a bunch of fruit and vegges, along with hot dogs, and I shredded cheese to melt. The kids had a blast loading up the skewers. They mostly ate hot dogs and cucumbers, while Abu Tulip and I ate more chicken, broccoli, and fresh bread dipped in really yummy cheese.
Finally, for dessert we melted some semi-sweet baking chocolate with a little bit of cream. Strawberries, pear, kiwi, apple, and banana. I don't know a better way to end a meal than to be scraping clean a bowl of chocolate with my boys. Yum.
