Morgan's 11th Birthday Party

Morgan had the party for her 11th birthday at Young Chefs Academy in Brentwood. She invited her brother and 4 friends to be her guests for a "Fundue Party". They made a cheese fondue with dippers and then a chocolate fondue with dippers. Ms. Beth and Ms. Lori were the chefs and they were wonderful! Morgan had a fabulous time and I think everyone else did too. :-)
This is what greeted Morgan in the kitchen. What a cute sign!

Morgan, Derick, David, Quenten & Alex with Ms. Beth

Alex and Quenten chopping vegetables with these cool rolling cutters.

Derick works on the broccoli.

David works on cutting peppers too.

Morgan, as the birthday girl, got to do the cooking. Here she is stirring the cheese fondue.

It looks good, doesn't it??

Here are some of the dippers.

Alex tries his first bite of cheese fondue. He liked it!

Alex, Quenten, Morgan, Madison, Derick & David...all enjoying the cheese fondue.
The dippers were french bread, pretzel rods, celery, bell pepper, carrots, and broccoli.

The cheese becomes stringy as it cools. Here is Alex trying to get some on his pretzel rods.

Quenten is instructed to pull UP as he winds the cheese. LOL

Now time for dessert...chocolate fondue, that Morgan made, and dippers, that everyone cut.
The dippers for dessert were angel food cake, marshmallows, pretzel rods, banana, strawberries, and oranges.

Morgan shares with Daddy.

Derick and David enjoy their chocolate fondue.

Morgan & Madison focus on their chocolate fondue.

In lieu of a cake (we will have one next weekend w/family), they put a birthday candle in the angel food cake cubes and sang "Happy Birthday" to Morgan.

Her favorite dippers were the strawberries, oranges, and pretzel rods.
Morgan, Madison & Derick are enjoying the last of their chocolate fondue.

This was their best "serious/good" picture.

Then they got silly.

And sillier.

How did the rolling knife work out? That is pretty neato and it seems like it would be kid friendly. We use alot of serrated knives with rounded tips but they don't work on everything.

The rolling cutters worked great! They cut celery, bell peppers, carrots,etc. They also have safety knives,plastic (like the rolling cutters) but serrated, that they used for the french bread and bananas. Really neat and safe for my 8yo to use so he can feel good about helping out in the kitchen now.
