Do you remember this?

This bottle of Sterno must be about 30 years old. That was about the time I was doing elaborate dinner parties, one being a fondue party.

I had all these fondue pots, even an electric one I used for the meat course. We would start with cheese fondue and crudités. Next would be meats and breads with a big bowl of green salad. Dessert was chocolate with strawberries and angel food cake. Who eats like that any more?

Today the new microwave oven is coming, so I had to empty the cabinet over the range. There was this bottle, shoved all the way in the back corner. I’m throwing it out. Fondue parties are from another lifetime.

  1. I certainly remember fondue pots and when they were popular. No, we don’t eat like that any more! Hope you like your new microwave. 🙂

  2. It was also used by Boy Scouts of all people to start fires quickly when the wood was wet or you needed a big bonfire fast.
