Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

A New Dining Experience

 I think I mentioned we had a new dining experience while visiting my husbands brother and his wife  a couple weeks ago. It was so nice to share a new experience.. How can eating be an Experience you may be asking.. Well Jennifer served us "Raclette" a Swiss grille meal. We grilled our meats and vegetable right at the table and melted our cheese topping.  * the trays of cheese fit under the grille to melt while the meat and veg cook. I boiled some potatoes and  the cheese poured over the top was delish. "Raclette"  actually refers to a type of Cheese  usually sold in a round..a bit pricey and hard to find. So we substituted it with Jarlsberg and Gruyere` with lovely melting properties. A Swiss cheese would also  be good.
Tonight Clay and I enjoyed our own "Raclette". Yes, I had to have one so I ordered one as soon as I returned home  from Amazon..( my favorite shopping center). It arrived in two days. making me a happy girl.  We will be sharing a Raclette meal with our friends this Friday so this was a test to see how well ours worked.. trying different sauces and vegetables was fun and made our dining experience one we will repeat..We will try shrimp next time ... The grilling of vegetables and meats just got better here at Blue Sky Farm..
