Lunch Date with My Little Cupid | The Melting Pot | Atlanta, GA

The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant, offering a range of fondue cooking styles as well as distinctive meals, salads, and amazing desserts.

It was simple to find parking because it was immediately close to the restaurant. The parking fee was ten dollars.

I booked reservations at 3pm and arrived around 10 minutes late, but they still weren’t ready for us. We had to wait around 10 minutes longer for a table to be cleared and cleaned.

There wasn’t much seating available near the front entry, but there weren’t many people there anyway.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I dined with my baby and cousin on a three-course fondue feast.

Our server greeted us and asked whether it was our first visit to the restaurant, which it was. The menu was a little perplexing, but he went on to break down what we were looking at on the menu so we could grasp it better.

There were three menus: the holiday special, the normal menu, and the kid’s menu were all available.

I noted that the kid’s menu didn’t really seem… childish. There were mostly only meat and seafood selections. My toddler doesn’t really eat any of it, so I inquired if they had any fries available; they did not.

The Melting Pot presented an incredible, participatory dining experience that converted moments into memories from the minute the first piece of bread was dipped into our cheese fondue.

Our server began by bringing us our drinks. I ordered a sweet tea, which is a popular drink known for being “hit or miss” in terms of sweetness. I had no complaints. My cousin ordered a water with lemon and I ordered my baby an apple juice that came in a cup with a lid and straw.

We were asked what style of cheese fondue we preferred because we were there for the Valentine’s Day special. It took us a minute to decide, but our server, whose name I wish I remembered, was really patient. I then inquired which option he would suggest, and he suggested that the cheddar cheese was the standard and most popular choice. That’s what we got.

Our cheese fondue was provided with bread, vegetables, and fruit on the side. I never thought about dipping a green apple in melted cheese, hehe. It tasted strange.

Then we had to decide which salad we wanted. We both ordered Caesar salads. It was served with no additional dressing to be added. I only like ranch on my salad so I waited to eat mine until I could request some to be brought to the table.

We were then asked what kind of chocolate we preferred. We went with the traditional milk chocolate.

It was my absolute favorite part of our lunch. I honestly believed the chocolate fondue order only included a side of strawberries. However, oh my goodness! Strawberries, bananas, brownies, marshmallows, cake slices, and waffle pieces were included. It was incredible! The warm melted chocolate was delicious.

We chose our favorite cheese fondue, salad, entrée, and chocolate for the 4-Course Experience, then prepared our food and savored sauces to enhance the flavor in every bite.

The “Melt Your Heart Petite Entrée” was an optional addition to the Valentine’s Day event special. It appeared to be a little taster lunch. It came with three pieces of chicken, three shrimp, and three pieces of steak. Some extras were also included, such as potatoes and broccoli, as well as a small selection of different sauces to try.

Instructions with appropriate cooking times for each item were supplied, as well as a disclosure regarding cooking safety at the table and how to avoid cross contamination.

It’s a new year, which means now is the perfect time to introduce a new you! The year 2022 is nearing, and it’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions.

It’s a new year, which means now is the perfect time to introduce a new you! The year 2022 is nearing, and it’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions.

Maybe you’ve had difficulty in the past keeping your New Year’s resolutions. However, you have another opportunity to try—and New Year’s Day is an excellent time to do so! If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out this list of 17 New Year’s resolutions. Whether you want to lose weight or learn to love yourself more, manage your money better, or strengthen your relationships with friends and family, you can choose from these 17 doable New Year resolution ideas.

Strive to exceed expectations and use this new year to pursue your dreams, whether it’s learning how to start a business or simply trying therapy for the first time to overcome a breakup. Whichever path you take, there are countless opportunities to live a happier and healthier life in the new year.

1. Begin a Journal

Keep a record of your thoughts, feelings, and dreams. There are numerous advantages to keeping a journal. It can aid in the reduction of anxiety, the creation of awareness, and the regulation of emotions. Furthermore, when you look back on it later in life, you’ll find it both humiliating and endearing.

2. Send Greeting Cards

Create joy in someone’s life by leaving them with a heartfelt note. You can even personalize greeting cards with your own artistry, fragrances, and even gifts!

If you want to make the gesture even more meaningful. I recommend acquiring some stamps and an address book. Consider how surprised they would be to get a beautiful greeting card from a loved one in the mail.

3. Make a Bucket List for Movies

Every year, there are a slew of films that you don’t want to miss out on seeing. Make a “bucket list” of all of the movies that you really want to watch that are coming out this year and put it on your calendar.

4. Take a Break from Social Media

It is possible to reduce the feelings of anxiety, wasted time, and procrastination that can be brought on by excessive browsing on social media if you take a break from it.

To make it more challenging, choose a day of the week, once a week, when you will not be able to access any social networking sites for the entire day.

5. Spend Less

Stop all non-essential expenditures for a day, a week, or a month. Effective use can help you save more.

6. DIY: Make Something Extraordinary

Getting started on that home improvement project you’ve been putting off is easier than ever in the new year. Doing something creative can be calming, fulfilling, and enjoyable!

7. Begin a Workout Challenge

Instead of rushing to sign up for a gym membership, think about how often you’ll actually use it. Particularly if you’re paying for it. Instead of going to the gym, why not just do it at home?

You may have a specific goal in mind, such as becoming more flexible or losing some belly fat. Concentrate on just one thing at a time. Starting a fitness challenge is a good way to get started. So many free online resources are available to help you achieve your individual physical goals.

For most challenges, you must complete a short workout every day for the entire month. It’s easy at the beginning, but as the days go on, the difficulty increases.

8. Every Month, Read a Book

Is it possible to read a book once a month for the next 12 months? Yes!

If you’d like to be recommended books to read, an Amazon Prime membership entitles you to receive an email at the start of each month with at least five suggestions. You have the option to purchase one of the five for free!

9. Increase Your Water Intake

The temptation to reach for coffee, soda, tea, or anything else sounds more exciting than plain water. Increased H20 consumption, on the other hand, is the key to radiant skin, a more balanced diet, improving the body’s ability to bounce back after a tough workout, and a slew of other benefits. Just to reiterate, increasing your water consumption is always a good New Year’s resolution to make.

For some individuals, the recommended eight glasses of water per day may seem excessive. But that is all it is: a recommendation. Why not make a more realistic aim of drinking at least one or two full bottle of water per day?

10. Schedule Your Appointments

How long has it been since your previous visit to the dentist? What about your most recent visit to your primary care physician? What about your dermatologist or OB/GYN? To avoid having to think about it, schedule your appointments at the start of the year and put them in your calendar right away.

11. Increase Your Vegetable Consumption

Although there are numerous health benefits to eating veggies, the majority of us do not choose to do so. So, if you can’t eat your vegetables, why not drink them?

The V8 brand’s “Healthy Greens” is one vegetable juice I recommend. It’s made out of a mix of green veggies with green apples added for sweetness.

12. Take More Walks

Walking is good for your health and happiness.

Walking 30 to 2 1/2 hours a day is suggested, but fitting that into an already hectic schedule can be difficult. Instead, once or twice a week, go for a stroll for at least an hour. Try to take in some different sights each time you go.

13. Schedule Your Car Washes on a Monthly Basis

Your automobile will always appear clean if you schedule regular car washing. The key is to plan things ahead of time and schedule them on your calendar so that you actually make time for them.

14. Make Time for Meditation

Mental health and wellbeing are just as critical as physical health, if not more so. In the new year, make a conscious effort to give your mind the same amount of TLC as you do your body. Calm, Headspace, and Liberate are all apps and programs that can assist you in getting started!

15. Visit a New Place

If you’ve been putting off your vacation plans, now is the time to start planning—or at least saving.

16. Consider Using Therapy

Everyone needs support from time to time. Even if you don’t feel like you’re stuck or going through anything major, finding a therapist can be extremely beneficial. There are a variety of options available, including phone therapy, virtual video calls, in-person therapy, and even text chat.

17. Cross Something Off Your Bucket List

What is something you’ve always wanted to accomplish but never had the time or money to attempt until now? Do it!

Let Me Tell You How Good McDonough, GA’s Tutti Frutti Is – Frozen Yogurt Shop

I was craving some more yogurt that night, so I’m definitely planning to go back.

We ended up at a frozen yogurt shop a day after trying a new ice cream shop. I had no idea what to expect this time. I don’t think I’ve had frozen yogurt in at least three years.

My uncle came up with the idea. He wanted to delight his daughter and nieces with a fun outing before they returned to school this week.

Tutti Frutti is a self-serve frozen yogurt shop with 16 flavors and a variety of toppings for only .49 cents per ounce.

This shop is located at 1495 GA-20, McDonough, GA 30253.

The colors used in the interior décor of this shop were adorable. I failed to capture a toddler-friendly table and chair set they had, as well as a couple of high chairs for the little ones.

I turned around and Christian had a cup in his hand pointing at the yogurt machines lol.

On the left, we pick up a cup, and on the right, there are machines where we can choose our own flavors. Mango, watermelon, vanilla, chocolate, peach, cake batter, cookies and cream, and other flavors are available.

My flavors: Peach & Watermelon
Jada’s Flavor: Cake Batter
Ava’s Flavors: Chocolate & Cake Batter

After we’ve decided on our yogurt flavors, we added our toppings.

The pricing were determined by the weight of each cup of yogurt and toppings. Our cost for all five of our cups came to roughly $45 total.

For a brief moment, I presided over the gathering and suggested we sit on the green seating, which was cuter than the orange. We all relaxed, joked, and ate as we all wondered what type of concoction Katie was eating lol.

Thank you for the treat, Uncle Punkin; we all had a great time. I was craving some more yogurt last night, so I’m going to see when I can go back.

Please let me know in the comments if any of my readers have any other frozen yogurt shop recommendations for us to visit, or if this post inspired you to try Tutti Frutti! Thanks for reading!
