I wanted to share a really fun dinner idea that my family LOVES. My kids were raving over this meal, so I thought I would share this idea for “FUN-du”  with you. This would be great for a gathering this week or even your New Year’s parties. Since it was Christmas Adam today (not heard of it? It’s one of our favorite days of the year…you should celebrate it! Ha!) Since Adam came before Eve, we turn today (the 23rd) into Christmas Adam. Every year the kids sleep under the tree, open their sibling presents to eachother, we open a new family game (and play it) and snuggle while we watch a Christmas movie. The fondu was voted to be our new Christmas Adam meal of choice. I would have to agree!! It was delicious and great for the kids to pick and choose what they were interested in 🙂

Fondu Sauces & Dipping Items
White Cheese Sauce & Cheddar Cheese Sauce (bread cubes, chicken, steak, vegetables, asparagus, etc.)
Jalapeno Jelly (potstickers, shrimp, egg rolls and chicken)
BBQ Sauce (Lil’ Smokies, Grilled Chicken)
Ranch Dressing (broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, celery)
White or Milk Chocolate (fresh pineapple, marshmallows, pretzels, bananas, apples, berries, etc.)

We also love to serve potstickers on this night. Here is our simple recipe for that.

  • 1 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 head green cabbage chopped very thin and small
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 pkg. circle wonton wrappers
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  • Mix the sausage, onion, garlic and cabbage in a bowl. Place a tiny bit of filling in each wonton wrap. Dip your finger in a bowl of water and rub the edges of the wonton wrap. The water helps to seal the wrap so it doesn't let the filling come out while you fry them. From this point you'll want to refer to the back of the wonton package for instructions on folding. It just takes a little practice. I promise you that even if they look ugly, your potstickers will taste delightful. Fry the wontons in oil that has been brought to 350 degrees until they are fully cooked inside. You might need to check the first couple wontons to make sure the sausage is completely cooked. Dip in the potsticker sauce.


Dessert, of course, was everyone’s favorite. I just bought the fruits/treats that were on sale this week and the kids had fun dipping them in chocolate (I just added a little heavy cream to a good quality milk chocolate chip and it worked great).

We love having the kids exchange their sibling gifts on this night. We used to have them give it to them Christmas morning but they were always overshadowed by their other presents. Because our kids earn their own money and buy their siblings presents we wanted to make sure they enjoyed them and were grateful for their siblings thoughtfulness (you know..anything to keep a little peace and happiness in the home). The other great aspect is they then get to play with their knew toys/gifts all day Christmas Eve and they let me do my thing in the kitchen all day preparing for our big Christmas Eve dinner. A win-win for all of us 😉
