Date 91 - Sweeten The Pot.

Date: Saturday, June 29, 2013
Type: Out on the town, Romantic
Cost: $$$
Planned By: Both

Adam and I love celebrating random anniversaries! I believe it is healthy to remember and celebrate important events in a relationship.
For this date we recreated the night we got engaged (June 25, 2010). Yes, we did this last year, but that was a DIY version.. Check it out!

The night Adam proposed we went to the Melting Pot in Houston Texas for dinner. It was the first time we had both been there. We got a four course meal and it was fantastic! It's a very nice and quite expensive restaurant so when we saw a Groupon for the Melting Pot in Legacy Village we just knew we had to get one. The Groupon gave us a three course meal (cheese fondue, salad and entree). When we called for the reservation they asked what we were celebrating, and I thought what the heck might as well tell them its our Engagement Anniversary!
1st Course
Cheddar Cheese fondue. It was delicious, and I just love how the waiters come around and make it for you on your table.  There were veggies, bread and apples to dip in the cheese.
2nd Course
I got the Caesar salad and Adam got the house salad. They were both good, but not too special.
3rd Course
Instead of each of us deciding on an entree the waitress brought out a plate with all the different types of entrees. There was chicken, filet mignon, duck, shrimp, salmon and a few other different things. They also provided some vegetables, potatoes and mushrooms. We had a great time cooking our food in the oil. I was particularly good at losing my food, and we had to do a search and rescue to get it out. I had never had duck before, and I can tell you I thought it was strange. I had also never had salmon before, and being anti-seafood but brave I tried it, but didn't really like it.  Overall, the entree plate of random food was very tasty!
4th Course (not in the Groupon deal)
Who goes to The Melting Pot and doesn't get dessert? Not us! We got the Cookies and Cream Marshmallow Dream fondue. It was definitely dream like. It was delicious, there were a bunch of different tastes to it and it was definitely chocolate gooey perfection. Some of the dippers were cheesecake, brownies, pound cake, bananas and strawberries! One unfortunate thing happened during this course.. I dripped some fondue down my dress!! Oh well, it was totally worth it!
Also for it being our engagement anniversary they gave us a card and two chocolate covered strawberries! This was great because Adam doesn't like chocolate covered strawberries so more dessert for me!! It was very sweet of them to help us celebrate though!
I entirely enjoyed recreating one of the happiest days of my life. I'm so happy that we got that Groupon because we hadn't been to The  Melting Pot since that night. I'm sure we will go back someday but I hope it doesn't take another three years!
