Take Me Home…

…to Hawai’i!!!!!

Mom and dad picked me up from the airport yesterday and we went straight home for a shabu shabu dinner. Home-cooked meals are the best, aren’t they?

Dad’s in charge of the “pineapple,” aka laying out the vegetables and dumplings in a bowl until it vaguely resembles the shape of a pineapple. Choy sum, napa cabbage, sliced daikon, broccoli, and pork and chive dumplings.

Mom’s the sauce mixer. Everyone has a preferred blend, I do the satay + chili oil + sriracha + scallions + tons of chopped raw garlic combo.

Steak, gizzards, and shrimp.

Tofu pouches…

…and two types of noodles (we like the chewy ones from the Korean supermarket).

A client dropped off this poofy lemon meringue pie from Zippy’s, so that was dessert.

So happy to be home ^_^

    I have never heard of having shabu shabu at home (only at the restaurant…hehe). That's so cool! Hope you have a great trip home!
