FONDue

Fondue was a hit.  Oreo cake was a huge hit (go, Nabisco!).  We did discover, however, that electric fondue pots are much more awesome than traditional sterno-heated fondue pots.  The traditional ones, not having adjustable heat, ended up scorching the cheese and undercooking the meat.  The electric ones kept the cheese warm on a low heat and the oil hot on a high setting.  Hooray for my mom, who had the electric ones.  I’m gettin’ me one of those – my old one’s headed for my grandmother’s yardsale. 

The Oreo cake was incredibly good, even more so because it was so easy to make.  I added crushed up Oreos to the cake batter even though the recipe (foolishly) didn’t call for them, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly (using Betty Crocker brand Devil’s Food Cake mix). 

Any deep, insightful, and/or amusing comments, remarks, or anecdotes I may have had today have hidden themselves altogether too well in the foggy, sleep-deprived depths of my mind, but perhaps they will deign to show themselves tomorrow.  Until then, adieu.
