Raclette!

Look what the FedEx guy just delivered!  (I had to remind him, as he made his way down our snowy driveway, not to slip.  “Watch those steps!  They’ll get you!”)

I knew right away what had arrived…

When Elisabeth arrived home from Germany in 2005, she mentioned “doing Raclette” and how much fun it is.  (“Better than fondue… or at least healthier!”)  And when Peter arrived home last week, he sang the same praises.  So I ordered a set.  And it arrived today.

Peter’s birthday is on Sunday.  Guess how our family will be celebrating?

Yes, there will be photos.  And maybe even a video.  But first we need to read up.

Is Peter home already? Thought he'd be hanging around in Europe until March?

Raclette is so much fun, we do it alot as a family...very yummy and great for entertaining....I like it almost better than Fondue, although we do enjoy Fondue also. Enjoy......

Susanne, what kind of cheese do you use? Peter found raclette cheese at Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck) for $18 a pound! That's insane! Can we use something cheaper?

OMG, I have never heard of this! (Yeah, I'm a bumpkin...) Off to read up on it.

You can use any cheese you would use for baking. Like Gouda, Muenster, Fontina, Provolone for example. Can't wait to hear how you like it. It's so much fun....everyone is 'cooking" their own food while you talk..and drink :)
Enjoy and Happy Birthday to Peter!
