My parents always had fondue on NYE. In an orange enamel pot.
We had an orange pot too!

We had fondue for Christmas Eve dinner this year. It was yummy however we didn't do chocolate fondue as the dessert. Shocked, I was!

my wife's fondue pot is handed down from her father. I believe it's Le Crueset

my daughter thinks Lil Peep dying is the celeb musician death of her generation. My wife's answer was he's no Lenon.

I'm not saying he's a saint but we got a house from his homeland for several days about 1/2 mile away in June. Relatives still nearby.
We only spent 2 days in Ireland around Dublin. I would like to go back and explore more.

But Croatia first!

We never had a fondue pot. I have a punch bowl from the 1970’s. The picture on the front of the recipe book makes you think you’ll be as hep and happy as the party people on the cover.

Orson Bean is a guest on this Tonight Show rerun. I always liked him because he reminded me of my uncle.

Someone mentioned sherbet punch the other day. 7up and rainbow sherbet. Takes me right back to elementary school.

Never heard of him, that I am aware of. I even looked up his picture and still doesn't ring a bell. Now Mr. Bean, otoh...

I’ll still make up a foamy sherbet punch for certain family parties.
I might have to do that for Itty Bitty. Might blow her mind. She has only had a few sips of Sprite and doesn't care for it. But add in some sherbet...

Wasn't sherbet punch a typical drink at non alcohol parties ?

So much more sugar than alcohol.

My dad always made Coca Cola and root beer floats for us. We loved them. My kids, not so much.

Virgil’s root beer is my favorite, but I don’t think I’d make a float with it. It kind of an herby flavor.

Dang butterscotch root beer is my second favorite.

I don’t really care for Gatorade. I’ll buy those little single serve electrolyte flavored drink packets for my water bottles. Mixed berry is my favorite.
