I know some folks have a few weeks until the end of the year. Don't we usually throw a Virtual Party with evry one pitching in their favorite goodies.



I'm offering my old fashioned lemonade, if you want to jazz it up go ahead...

I will bring some fruit pizza, and the plates and napkins to go with it. I will also bring a wide selection of airline bottles of alcohol.

I posted this the first time back in 07 or 08. It may even be in the PT cookbook. A friend had a food of the decades party for her 50th birthday. This was one of the featured recipes.

There are many variations out there now with different names. Due to COVID I will be making this with a baguette or regular loaf and then slicing it.



This is a fabulous recipe that everyone loves. I seriously cannot attend a function without toting one of these in with me.

It is not as hard as it seems. You will have people begging for the recipe and it is guaranteed to be polished off!

If the sourdough round is a huge one I use 3 cubes of butter, otherwise just 2. A buttery chardonnay gives it a nice rich tang (La Crema or Raymond are both great CA wines).

Somebody... give it a try and let me know what you think!

Walking Fondue

1 loaf of flat, round sourdough French bread
1 package sliced Swiss cheese (12 oz or 16 oz for a huge round)
2-3 cubes butter
Ĺ cup dry white wine
1 T lemon juice
1 T dry mustard
1 T Beau Monde seasoning

Score bread along lines on top of loaf, making sure the cuts go to the bottom crust but not through it. Push pieces of cheese into scores pushing it to the bottom of the loaf. Double wrap the loaf in foil, leaving the top open.

Melt together remaining ingredients and carefully pour onto top of loaf, opening the cuts to allow the liquid to soak in. tightly seal the top with foil.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover the top and bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Re: walking fondue. What do you mean by cubes of butter? Approximately how many ounces per cube? It sounds delicious!

I'll bring the balloons to decorate the room, "Congratulations, You Made it"!

This reminds me of the Mary Tyler Moore Show opening, singing
Who can turn the world on with her smile
Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile

Well itís you girl and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it

Love is all around no need to waste it
You can have the town why donít you take it
Youíre gonna make it after all
Youíre gonna make it after all

Didn't we all do this everyday at school for years?

A brand new car! For you, and for you, and for you! Even for those who "graduated" years ago. We're going to crank up the tunes in each car and park them in a circle surrounding the party which will be out in a pasture somewhere in the country--a Georgia style tradition from where I used to teach. I don't know what the kids do here in Maine, but I just drove by the local high school here and saw a hand-painted "for sale" sign in front of it. It had lots of swirls and hearts etc on it.
