Wedding Day Eve

July 9, 2010

Evelina, my best friend (who is staying with us during the week prior and up to the wedding), mentioned that her favorite dessert is chocolate covered rice crispy treats. The only place I know to get those is The Melting Pot and as it turns out that's the only place she's had 'em. We headed to The Melting Pot to meet with a good friend, Andrew (who came all the way from Oregon to be at our wedding), and have some cheese and chocolate.

If you've never been to Melting Pot, you may not know that it is quite the dining experience. If you do their Big NIght Out it can take a couple of hours to enjoy the cheese, salad, meats and chocolate. Since it was pretty late we opted to go with just cheese and dessert.

Wisconsin Trio cheese at The Melting Pot

For the cheese we went with the Wisconsin Trio, made with three cheeses and I can't remember a single one of them and I'm to lazy to go look it up. It's one of our favorites and everyone we've introduced to it has enjoyed it.

Dessert Assortment includes strawberries, banana, rice crispy treats, marshmallows, brownies, pound cake and cheesecake

The dessert platter includes strawberries, oreo crumb covered marshmallow, graham cracker covered marshmallow, Rice Crispy Treats, banana, pound cake, brownies, and cheesecake. They'll bring you more provided there's chocolate sauce, so we had extra Rice Crispy Treats for Evelina and extra strawberries for Gaetano.

Yin & Yang chocolate fondue at The Melting Pot

The chocolate fondue we went with was the Yin & Yang. It's not only beautiful, but scrumptious. Dan prefers white chocolate and I like dark chocolate, so it's perfect for us and rather appropriate for Wedding Day Eve!

Gaetano dipping into the chocolate

Gaetano loves going with us to The Melting Pot. We just have to be careful about his artificial color allergy during dessert. Here he's saying how good it is.

Oyster with a peral charm

Little did I know that Evelina had a surprise for me. She gave me beautiful necklace with an oyster charm. The oyster opens like a locket, revealing a pearl. I've never seen anything like it! Since oysters are edible, that makes it food related... right? ;-)
