Who does Family Nights Out? We do occasionally, but way more so we do Family Nights In. I love doing game nights with the kids, or movie nights that typically have pizza included. But this past weekend I wanted to try something different.

We stuck with a movie night, but for dinner I decided to do Fondue. After mine and Travis' anniversary dinner at the local fondue place I was excited for the kids to experience something similar. And while it wasn't close to be exact, it was fun and they really enjoyed it.

Of course I had to make some modifications because I wasn't about to put a boiling pot in front of our 3 and 5 year old, but they still enjoyed every last part.

But first I need to back up a little.

Do you ever get to the store and have an idea for a dinner but you don't know what all goes into the recipe? Or maybe you go grab groceries and are just at a loss at what you are going to make that week? Well not anymore!

Walmart Family Mobile

Walmart Family Mobile has an awesome new plan. The Starter Kits are cheaper then before and now on rollback for just $19.88, down from $25!! That is such a great deal! They also have great deals on phones. I recently grabbed the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime for just $99.99 currently on rollback from 149.00 and I am loving it.  And with the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan featuring Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a free movie on VUDU ($7 value) every month per line for $49.88 I can have the internet any time I need it! Like those times I talked about before when you are sitting at the grocery store still trying to figure out what you are making for dinner. Plus I don't feel like I am spending a ton to get all the phone options I expect from a company, like the extra data!

So I decided that I wanted to make a fun fondue for the family like the one T and I had for our anniversary dinner. Except I really had NO idea where to even start. Thank goodness for Google and my phone because I was able to look up some recipes to find just what I wanted.

I wanted to start with a cheese fondue, then do a meat and then a chocolate dessert. I was already at Walmart getting my new phone so I got the food I needed too and was ready to cook!

I found a cheese fondue that sounded pretty great. Garlic, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard and shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

Next I did the meat. Instead of having multiple meats like T and I did I just went with chicken. Because chicken is safe, right? I marinated it in a teriyaki sauce and then instead of letting the littles use the fondue skewers over boiling vegetable broth I just cooked all the chicken in the broth at once and then scooped it out. It worked pretty well!

And last I did a chocolate s'mores dessert.  3 chocolate bars, let it melt then add marshmallow cream. Once it was melted and in the little bowls I sprinkled a little graham cracker crust over the top.

It was all amazing. Plus I had a ton of stuff to dip into these items.

For the cheese I did crackers, bread, apples, carrots. The meat consisted of teriyaki chicken, sliced mushrooms, whole mushrooms, onion and potato. And the chocolate had graham crackers, marshmallows, strawberries, apples, pineapple and rice krispies. Obviously I had the most fun with the dessert. I think it was out favorite... even though it wasn't quite smooth, it worked perfectly.

I have to say, the kids had so much fun. They loved the food and they loved the fact that it took me a long time to prep so by the time we got around to our VUDU movie time it was already past their bedtime so they got to stay up extra late!

One thing that is awesome ---> Our SmartTV has a VUDU button right on it! It makes it extra easy to watch our FREE movie that comes along with the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan!
