Adventures in Food

This weekend, Marc and Christy invited J and I to The Melting Pot for dessert!

I had never been and was SO excited!
We decided to order 2 smalls so that we could have a littler variety.
The first was Disaronno in white chocolate.

It was incredibly delicious.  4 of us shared the dessert.  To be honest after the first, I probably could have stopped.  It doesn't seem like a whole lot when it gets to your table but once you dive in, after eating dinner, it is actually plenty. 
We couldn't help ourselves -- we ordered a SECOND! YUM! It was milk chocolate with Bailey's Irish Creme. Seriously -- I don't know how I will ever eat non-alcoholic chocolate fondue again!
Yes, it was that delicious.

Oh and those BRIGHT yellow things = bananas.  I'm not sure why they are SO colorful in my picture lol.

Our next food adventure came the next morning. J and I wanted toast with our eggs for breakfast. Our toaster quit working about a month ago. SO we don't have a toaster.  Did you know you could toast bread successfully in your oven?! We turned on the broiler and toasted plain bread. it was DELICIOUS. Now we aren't too pressed to buy a toaster lol. We did burn like half a loaf of bread because we weren't paying attention. OOPS!

The last adventure of the weekend pertaining to food was the funniest for me. J didn't find it so amusing.

That is Parmesan cheese EVERYWHERE.
For whatever reason, J decided to shake the Parmesan cheese container.  He made sure ONE side of the lid was tightly closed. He shook and then it snowed in our kitchen.  I couldn't stop laughing and J just stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what just happened. He and most of the kitchen were lightly dusted in Parmesan cheese.  Ruger thought it was the best thing ever haha.

I hope everyone had a good weekend!
Did you have any food adventures??

LOL at the super bright yellow bananas! I'm guessing they weren't actually that colour in reality...?
