I’m going to interrupt the chronological(ish) order of my backlogged posts for something much more recent but as it gets closer to the holidays, I feel compelled to talk about my favorite holiday/winter party. Once it gets a bit cooler, I start getting very excited for hot pot. What is hot pot you ask? I guess my usual description is that it’s Asian style fondue but instead of using oil or cheese to dip your food in, we use a variety of soup bases. My personal favorite is something with a little bit of spice (but not too spicy), but the end of the night, all the flavors will meld together.
