Loretta’s Ladies Night Out

June 26, 2009
meltingpot5tThis year for the New York walk, I joined a team – Loretta’s Ladies. Last year, on February 14, 2008, friend and teammate Loretta Gaffney was diagnosed with cancer. The team changed their team name to “Loretta’s Ladies” to give Loretta the hope, strength and courage to fight her battle. Unfortunately, God had other plans for Loretta and she passed away in June but she was with her team in spirit as they walked in October. The Ladies are walking this year in Loretta’s honor, keeping her in their hearts, knowing that her spirit will live on in all of us.

Janet organized a dinner at the Melting Pot and nine of the team members attended. We ordered the Quattro Formaggio Cheese Fondue and the Traditional Swiss Cheese Fondue. And of course, we had to end the meal with a Chocolate Fondue Dessert. The chocolate fondue is pictured

meltingpot3My mom’s family has a chalet near Grùyere, Switzerland. When we visited, they would take us to Gruyères Castle where there is a town that looks like it is straight out of the Middle Ages. We would have lunch at one of the restaurants that specialize in fondue. The traditional fondue of this is moitie-moitie, or half and half, a combination of Gruyère and Fribourg Vacherin cheese.
