Fondue, again--

Last night, Fizzit, Itza and Flippant came by for another fondue dinner. The main course was--eh, okay enough, a beef stock fondue with a few assorted sauces, mostly leftover from Wednesday.

Dessert, though, was interesting :) I was planning to make a banana fondue recipe I found, but I think I must have given that cookbook to Butterfly. So I searched around a bit and somehow found this website with white chocolate wasabi fondue.

It was a lot of fun! Step one, reduce about a quart of sake down to a half-cup of wasabi syrup. Step two, make two tablespoons of wasabi paste, and mix into white chocolate. Serve quickly.

It had a surprisingly light wasabi flavor--just a little bit of it, and no burn. I messed up the recipe a bit and used too much cream and chocolate, so it should have been a leetle bit stronger, but overall, a success :)

I got bored and had a huge quantity of the sauce left over, so I reduced it down to caramel. I'm looking forward to trying that today!

Totally off topic
Just looked at your interests. Mr. Logic, you ~rule~. Bible slashfic is sheer genius. I wonder where it is. Because you know if you can think it up, it exists somewhere on the web. :)

Thanks again for the laughs over in thrifthorror. Oftimes I really need them. :P

Re: Totally off topic
I think the "bible slashfic" came when I saw a reference to To Kill a Mockingbird slash. *shudder* Hi!

hello, I've been giggling at your thrift horror site all morning, its great. I noticed you mentioned anthropomorphic art in your interests too, and thought you might like a look at my comic.

Oh, very nice! Your cat's very well-drawn, and the horse has a lot of character. Is the sheriff a sloth? That's an unusual choice, don't see those too often...neat!

thanks :) yeah, the sheriff is a sloth, the whole comic came from one drawing-


but im not used to writing at all so the plot is full of holes. I guess your degree would have taught you things like Dont Write Stuff Week by Week?

Nah, the weekly serial has a proud tradition going back nearly as long as journalism :) All my writing degree taught me to do was to be terribly open-minded toward any writing, and that Iambic Pentameter doesn't necessarily have to begin with a soft beat. That really screwed me up.
