Hurray for Date Nights!

Last night was Date Night for Mark and I and it couldnt have come at a better time! 
Going on a date with my husband is something I look forward to more than anything.
It is SO nice to get away with your love to talk without any interruptions! 
It's wonderful and so needed for all relationships(especially if you have 4 kids)!
One of our favorite things to do is to try new restaurants.
I think if I was loaded, I would spend a lot of money on fancy restaurants:) 
We headed over to The Melting Pot in Littleton. It is a fondue place. It is very expensive, so we have never gone. But thanks to a VERY generous gift from one of Marks students at Valor, we went last night!
We started with a Spinach Artichoke cheese fondue- they make it right at the table in front of you and give you bread cubes, granny Smith apples and an assortment of veggies to dip.
We ate it all:) 
After that is the salad. 
Mine was a Spinach Mushroom salad with bacon, red onions and the best raspberry vinaigrette I have ever tasted! Mark got the Ceaser. 
After that came the meat- I got a sampler platter with shrimp, steak, salmon, chicken- and the sauces they gave you were amazing! You would throw all the raw veggies in the boiling broth and then cook you r meet on the skewers. It was delicious! 
Then came dessert- we got a Turtle Fondue- milk chocolate, caramel and pecans. They flambéed it right in front of you and served it with marshmallows, rice krispie treats, bananas, strawberries, cheesecake, pound cake, and brownies. AMAZING!  It melted in your mouth. oh, the creamy, chocolaty goodness!
It definitely was a wonderful night and a cool experience.
