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.
…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 ^_^
