A taste of Valentine's

Happy Friday! I am so glad this week is coming to an end, specially given the fact that I do need some rest from all the eating and celebrating of last night.
My Valentine's day was quite low-key, intimate and supposedly relaxing. We decided to avoid the restaurant crowds (bad service, packed, hard to get - call 2 months ahead reservations) and to do something at home that we would both enjoy.
First, we thought about doing a dinner box, just like last year. For those of you who don't know, there are certain restaurant and catering businesses that offer a pre-prepared dinner (appetizers, entrees and desert) all wrapped up with a pretty pink or red bow, oh the joy of a lazy Valentine!
However, the fondue idea was far more appealing this year. So it was settled! Cheese fondue, cold cuts and cornichons paired with cider and colored macaroons for dessert. Flowers and candles spiced up the atmosphere (who care that I was wearing PJ'S?).

Yummy, isn't it? Thank you very much for reading and have a great weekend!
