TGIF and Fondue

I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments on my kitchen I really appreciate it. I am going to take a little blog break next week its the last week before school starts back I know its really early so we are going to try to get back into the swing of things. Also next Friday is our 16th wedding anniversary 16 years it hard to believe its been 16 years. Well I hope everyone has a great weekend and week. I am sure I will be lurking around!

This is a cute embroidery piece I have been working on its going to be so cute in the picture there is a brown spot on the side but its not there in person so I not sure if its a shadow are what...
Here is the fondue recipe as promised

Cheddar Fondue

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
3/4 c. beer
3/4 c. milk
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. paprika
dash cayenne
3 c. cheddar cheese (shredded)

Melt butter and blend in flour. Gradually stir in beer and milk over medium heat, stirring constantly until thicken. Blend Worcestershire sauce and spices. Remove from heat add cheese one cup at a time stir until melted. Serve in fondue pot with apple slices and chunks of a good bread. This is so good you may want to double it!
