Category: HotPot (打邊爐)

Hot pot (Chinese: 火鍋; pinyin: huǒ guō), less commonly Chinese fondue or steamboat, refers to several East Asian varieties of stew, consisting of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Typical hot pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, leafy vegetables, mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, and seafood. The cooked food is usually eaten with a dipping sauce. In many areas, hot pot meals are often eaten in the winter.

Hotpot at my house (師奶篇)

As most the people know, my parents are in Asia for their vacation right now, so I have the house all by myself.  I already had a few nights playing video game with friends already, so here is the first big parties I arranged weeks ago , hotpot dinner with aunties!!!  Everyone was excited when I told them my mom and dad were leaving because they don’t have vacations that often these days  :p  Me and Corolla bought most of the food the day before the party, so the preparation was pretty relaxing since I had 2 days to do so hehe.  The night started with abalone slices (鮑魚片) as appetizer, then followed with all kinds of food as you can see in the video below :p, Corolla made dessert as always (南北杏雪耳木瓜糖水) and so did I (Banana Cake 香蕉蛋糕) hehe.  Of course everyone had a good time and I am sure there will be more parties like this in the coming weeks before my parents come back 🙂  Anyhow, please enjoy this 師奶篇 video because it doesn’t happen very often in my life :p
