Something New #57 – Swizz and Cheese Fondue

Leave a comment

April 27, 2011 by Darlene McC

The food-related hits keep coming from last week; and I promise that soon I’ll write about something not related to what’s going on my mouth… BUT, Saturday night the in-laws were in town to celebrate the 75th birthday of our matriarch Johanna.  Family traveled from near and far; but train, bus, and even car; to join us in Gotham.  The plan was to eat at a Swiss restaurant in the theatre district.  Yes, you heard me: a Swiss restaurant.  ‘What do they have at a Swiss restaurant?’ you might ask.  Well, you might want to look at the menu.

Swizz

WINE CAVE!

Wine Cave

The place is Swizz  (they’re on 53rd between 8th & 9th if you’re interested) and they boast, among other things, a wine cave!  Pictured to the right, we were fortuitous enough to get to dine in said wine cave… with 18 people it was a little tight, but some sacrifices must be made for the sake of being fancy!

Hot Cheese ~ For Dipping

For some reason my in-laws found it very strange that:

1) I’ve never had fondue

2) We didn’t receive a fondue pot as a wedding present (which I think I may expect one for either our anniversary or next Christmas… hmm….)

Obviously, this serious transgression against cheese needed to be rectified.  Good thing for me I hadn’t yet committed to giving it up after reading Skinny Bitch.

While I don’t have a good picture of it I can confirm that it was both cheesy and delicious.  My section of the table opted to have the “Traditional”

Gruyere and Emmenthal cheeses, served with cubed bread

Not my typical cheeses, to be sure… but I’m not complaining either.  Fortunately, we also followed up our large dinner with cake and, you guessed it, chocolate fondue.  I’m proud to say I did dip my chocolate cake with chocolate frosting into the dark chocolate fondue and I was in no way disappointed by this choice!

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
