steal of the week!

I brought my friends Leesa and Sam a fondue set as a wedding present . Kmart we're having a big sale on thursday so i thought ohh its defiently the day to buy! so i got into the store found what i was looking for and was abit dissapointed that it was still marked at $35.00 and was one of the only things in that asile not marked down (but oh well thats not too bad a price right??!) so then i got to the counter (with a few other items of course, hello did someone say sale!) and it scanned through at $11.90!! being the nice and truthful person i am, i asked if this was correct and was ensured that 'the scanner never lies!' so i ended up with a complete fondue set with a lazy susan for a bargain price of $11.90!!! (it's a stainless steel set, and is not the one pictured above) so now i've got quite a few extra monies to get something nice to go with it! i'm thinking a nice fondue recipe book or a platter or something.

Anna (our receptionist) also gave me this cheese and tomato recipe, which she says is a family favourite. so i've eagerly put it on the list of things to try! (after the next two busy weeks of formals, weddings and busy sewing bees!) i think it's pretty similiar to our family recipe one, just with the tomato and garlic..which i am excited to try.

Cheddar Tomato Fondue

2/3 cup finely chopped drained canned tomatoes

2 garlic cloves, lightly crushed

2 tablespoons unslated butter

3 tablespoons dry white wine

1 tablespoom cornstartch

12 ounces of Cheddar, coarsley grated (3 cups)

Accompainment: cubes of French Bread

Cook tomatoes and garlic in butter in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderatley low heat, stiring occasionally unti most of the liquid is evaporated (about 5 mins). Stir together wine and cornstartch in a small bowl, then stir in tomatoes and simmer gently, stirring for 1 min. Discard garlic. Add cheddar by the handfuls, stirring until completly melted. serve in a fondue pot and set over flame.
