Faith invited her friend over. Ken and Rainer were there too, of course, taking the photo.
After dinner the kids played field hockey in the back yard. Dieter thinks he is one of the teens (and the teen siblings are so sweet to him, always).
Later in the evening we had chocolate fondue for dessert.
The teens ended up playing board games late into the night, especially Taboo, which really is so very fun.
Here is the recipe I always use for a very family friendly cheddar fondue. I got it from my friend, who cut it out from a newspaper back in the 70's. It's very retro but honestly so delicious.
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. white wine
1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 t. dry mustard
1 c. mayonaise
4 c. grated sharp cheddar (really pack it in there)
Mix the milk, wine, Worcestershire, dry mustard, mayo and cheese in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, until cheese melts and is very hot. Pour into fondue pot. Serve with hot crusty sourdough.
