1. kebabs

Or kebobs, if you like.

Which means I have to get the grill out and clean it.

I haven't had it out yet this season.

Will mix up my marinade for peppers, zucchini and onions and let that impart delicious herby, garlicky flavors for the rest of the day.

3. Guests over for cheese fondue.

Bread on it's final rise, then will go in the oven.

It's really too hot here to run the oven, but it's got to be done.

And things should have really cooled off by the time the guests get here.

5. That sounds like fun!

I haven't used my fondue pot and cute little fondue forks in years .

What kind of cheese are you using?

6. It's great fun.

I generally use a mixture of gruyere and emmentaler.

I always try to make a fresh, crusty bread and generally have grapes, apples and pear as well.

The fondue pot was left on the boat when we bought it and I have used it a lot since them. Our table is round, so it works perfectly.

And people love it. It's my number 1 requested meal by far.

I can't do beef (pot of boiling oil on a boat - not cool) and don't really care for chocolate.

But cheese? Any time.

12. Every month or so, MiddleFingerMomMom would prepare fondue for meats and veggies.

It was LOADS of fun... and it was the only time our family had real conversations
at the dinner table. I wish it were more prevalent now.
.
There a fondue restaurant in town with cheese, meat &/or seafood, and chocolate
versions for a full 3-course meal, but it's fairly expensive.

13. Fondue is so inexpensive to do at home, I don't think I've ever paid for it out.

There is the initial investment for the equipment, but thrift stores/garage sales often have them.

You should check it out!

9. Stuffing it with a brown rice pilaf (raisins, almonds, onions, spices) and pouring

canned tomato juice around it. A sprinkle of parmesan cheese over the top for good measure .

17. It was clean-out-the-fridge night here.

Reruns are always a weekly necessity.
