Don’t Mind if I Fondue

Hi guys! How are you?? IT’S FRIDAY!! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your awesome comments on the BC update post. It got a little personal for a second, but sometimes that happens πŸ˜‰

My Thursday night ended up being pretty much amazing:

2 hours of Dance Trance (I’m in LOVE) and then dinner at Urban Flats for Ladies’ Night with my cousin πŸ˜€

Note: All dinner photos are via crackberry, since we went straight from dance

We shared the wheat flatbread appetizer with macadamia nut hummus, olive tapenade, red pepper dip and pesto:

and I got the standard Maple Dijon cedar plank salmon for my entree.

So flaky, buttery and the sauce is perfect. My goal is to recreate it at home sometime in the near future… but it’s kinda hard to be motivated when entrees are half-priced on Thursday nights for Ladies’ night. You also get free dessert! Last time we went, it was cannolli, which was pretty good. This time, it was creme brulee, which my cousin and I both kinda detest, so this happened instead:

Chocolate fondue!

Pound cake, pineapple, banana, marshmallow and strawberries with a giant vat of chocolate for dipping.

Dessert domination 2010 πŸ™‚

I went to sleep with my fondue food baby and called it a night <3

This morning, I woke up early to get in a little cardio sesh before work (45 glorious minutes on the treadmill- I lost the charger to my iPod, so I just listened to VH1 on the TV- it was perfect!), and then munched this for b-fast:

Chocolate cherry bomb diggity.

+ some toast πŸ™‚

Hi ho… Hi ho….

    I lurve fondue. I seriously don’t think I can choose between chocolate and cheese. They are both so good.

  2. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on October 8, 2010 at 9:32 am

    You can’t go wrong with 1/2 price entrees and free dessert!

  3. April @ Crazy Fabulous Life on October 8, 2010 at 9:42 am

    That salmon looks ridiculously good!

    Have a good day at work πŸ™‚

  4. Cyndi @ Weightless Life on October 8, 2010 at 9:52 am

    Your ladies’ nights always look like so much fun! It makes me want to plan one.

  5. skinnyrunner on October 8, 2010 at 10:11 am

  6. Little Bookworm on October 8, 2010 at 10:16 am

    Love chocolate fondue! πŸ™‚ Hope you have a good day!

  7. Laughter-Loving Stacy on October 8, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Yummmmmmy I love fondue. Cheese is the type I traditionally eat, though. I’ve been deprived of chocolate. πŸ™‚

  8. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on October 8, 2010 at 10:39 am

    all that food looks delicious – the salmon gets me every time!! i hope your new shoes worked well! πŸ™‚

  9. Heather (Heather's Dish) on October 8, 2010 at 10:53 am

    i adore fondue in a most ridiculous way…cheese is my fave and chocolate is a VERY close second!

  10. Kristina @ spabettie on October 8, 2010 at 10:59 am

    we are totally making fondue this weekend!! πŸ˜€ I’ve been craving it, so we’re havin’ a little party… you can show up around 6! πŸ˜‰

  11. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on October 8, 2010 at 11:05 am

    So…I just went to my first hip hop class in 5 years last night, and it pretty much felt like someone gave me my life back. I can NOT believe I let it go so long before dancing again. I had this big goony smile on my face all the way home and cannot wait to go back next week, even if it is a little cheesed out. πŸ™‚ Dance Trance sounds even better! So yeah I will be consulting your past blog posts about how to become a trainer very soon. πŸ˜€

  12. Nic on October 8, 2010 at 11:16 am

    Fondue tops a creme brulee in my book as well! Even when free, somethings just aren’t worth eating πŸ™‚

  13. Food & Other Things on October 8, 2010 at 11:41 am

    I love the title of this post! Chocolate fondue is quite possibly my favorite dessert!!

  14. Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on October 8, 2010 at 11:49 am

    I don’t think I’ve ever had fondue…haha is that bad? I like to call myself a foodie but i’ve never tasted fondue…hmmmm oh well! SOON! That salmon looks divine πŸ™‚

  15. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on October 8, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    Fondue > creme brulee. Not even a question! Unless it’s the vegan lavender creme brulee at Blossom in NYC…mmmm πŸ™‚ Hope you have a great Friday!

  16. Stefanie on October 8, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    I reallly wish we had different and fun classes like that near my home! Maybe I need to move to Florida? πŸ˜‰

  17. Jessica@tastyandtrim on October 8, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    mmm I adore fondue! Put warm, melted chocolate on anything and I’ll eat it!

  18. Krystina on October 8, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    Macadamia nut hummus sounds fantastic.

  19. So want a fondue now!!!

  20. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on October 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    Choc fondue is pretty much awesome! I have been to the Melting Pot restaurant for many a ladies nite out, New Years, etc and fondue was in full force! I havent had it in years but yeah, good stuff!

    Love the ladies nite: time with your friends, half price food, free dessert. Hello, that’s a standing date night every week if you ask me!!!

    Glad you girls had a ball…that’s sooo important is cutting loose and being with friends, in real life, out living life, key. So key!

  21. Lisa on October 8, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    Yum! Love salmon! =)

  22. Meaghan on October 8, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    This is pretty off topic, but will you be doing a Winter Shape Up Workout this year? The Summer Shape Up made me feel so strong by the end of it– I had shoulder muscles for the first time in my life! πŸ™‚

  23. Moni's Meals on October 8, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    we all need ladies night and we all need chocolate fondue! Well done. πŸ˜‰

  24. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on October 8, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    I’ve never had fondue in a restaurant. I know….the shame! I’ve had some in cooking class but that’s it!

  25. Chicago Cuisine Critique on October 8, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    I can’t get enough fondue!

  26. Allison @ Food For Healing on October 8, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    mmm fondue, i have NEVER had chocolate fondue before, might be something to try out

  27. LisaG on October 8, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Let me know what you think the sauce is for the salmon. Just got back with the goods to make your black bean/sweet potato chili. Time to break out the crockpot.

    • Fitnessista on October 8, 2010 at 7:49 pm

      i’m making that this weekend too! πŸ™‚
      think it’s stone ground mustard, maple syrup, garlic, sea salt, pepper and olive oil??

      • LisaG on October 8, 2010 at 7:58 pm

        Great minds think alike huh? That salmon pic has me slobering. I have a cedar plank; I think I’ll try to grill some up.

  28. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on October 9, 2010 at 7:24 am

    I like creme brulee, but chocolate fondue definitely trumps it! πŸ˜€

  29. Erika @ Food, Fitness, & Fun on October 9, 2010 at 11:00 am

    I am IN LOVE with fondue…whether it be cheese or chocolate. <3 My Mom got a huge fondue pot for Christmas last year and I beg her to take it out AT LEAST once a month! πŸ˜‰

  30. Maria@LaPiattini on October 9, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    Oh my everything at Urban Flats looks incredible. I was drooling over the appetizer with the macadamia nut hummus and then I saw the dessert-yum!

  31. Tiffany on October 9, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    Gina,
    I live in Orlando as well and did the Reindeer Run last year. This year it is in a new location but I thought it was a fun race that got me in the Christmas spirit last year. You can sign up at trackshack.com. You do need to stop talking about Seasons 52 on your blog though as I want to go there every time you mention it. Hope you like your new town. I just discovered Zumba a few months ago and love it. Sooo surprized that I like it as much as I do. The teacher is hilarious so that makes it enjoyable as well.
