Nothing says date night more to my man than great food. & he’s a sucker for fajitas. Actually- we both are. Big time. I’m one of those people who likes lots of options. I order lots of dips & sauces. I like all of the salsas at my disposal. & if there is some kind of sampler- that’s my first choice. Fajitas are basically an acceptable dinner sampler with the added build-your-own fun. & I’m here for it. Keep reading to check out our date night at Nacho Daddy & what Ryan looks like mocking me……

Romance is so important- whether you’re newlyweds or have been married for what feels like forever. But romance isn’t everything if there isn’t fun. Getting out of your comfort zone & trying something new can be incredibly refreshing! Check out my 10+ ideas for fun dates on any budget!…
I decided one night that I wanted to have fondue but there just isn’t all that many options out here. Ryan grew up eating fondue at home but it was the oil kind- I thought cheese sounded better! I read a ton of recipes but decided on a few simple ones pieced together. We also had some amazing drinks because we’re grownups & no one can tell us what to do, right?
I pretty much followed this recipe here on Spoonful but using the option of beer. I also rubbed the inside of the crock pot with a raw garlic glove instead of adding it directly to the slowcooker. If you want something super creamy don’t do what I did by using up a few small bits of cheese since they didn’t melt down as well. Still tasted amazing though- like beer cheese soup!
- crusty French bread
- sausage that had been charred a bit for flavor
- pear & apple
- roasted asparagus
- roasted green beans
Obviously you can use about anything you have that goes with cheese- these items just happened to be readily available. There’s just something so fun about fondue! I think it is because it is a real activity & creates a bit of conversation. The prep looks like a lot but it didn’t really take much time. If you use raw veggies then it practically preps itself.
What do you do for date nights? What’s your favorite fondue recipe? Any tips for chocolate fondue?
