The Melting Pot

One of our last meals together for quite sometime. So we decided to splurge. But of course not without a coupon.=) Millers don't got anywhere without their coupons. We got a free chocolate for two for signing up for the "Melting Pot Club" - basically just annoying emails updating me on whats going on with the Melting Pot. ANYway, this was Eric's first time to go and we were pretty excited.
Starting out with our first course: The Swiss Cheese Fondue, completed with veggies, granny smith apples, and 3 different kinds of bread as dippers. It was SO yummy.
Second course: the California salad - walnuts, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes and topped with a black walnut raspberry vinagerette.
Third course: The meat cooked in a broth that was full of herbs and garlic. There was salmon, filet mignon, sirloin, chicken and shrimp to be cooked, along with broccoli, potatoes and mushrooms. Then there were 5 different sauces to top them off! Curry, plum, teriyaki, a spicy horsiradish style one, and a bleu cheese sauce. SO SO good. Our favorite thing from the whole evening were probably the mushrooms. They came with their own special filling, of sour cream, cream cheese, chives and other yumminess, to make a sort of stuffed mushrooms. A-mazing!
And fourthly, the Chocolate. There were so many choices of types of chocolate, with all kinds of goodies mixed in, but in the end, we picked the plain dark chocolate. So so good. So good, that we dug right in and I forgot to take a picture of the beautiful arrangment of strawberries, brownies, marshmellows, pound cake, bananas, cheesecake and rice krispies. It was incredible.
All in all, dinner took about 2 hours, which I loved. We had such a good time being together, talking and enjoying our last moments together. It is such a gift from Jesus to not only be so in love with each other, but to reall really like being with one another. Praise Him for He is good.

I have to tell ya, I cried reading this posting as I thought about your love for each other and for Him, and thanking the Lord for you both. I am so blessed as a dad.

Jack said it well. I was teary- eyed as I read your post. I am so thankful for both of you in our lives and in each other's and your example to the world.
