Then that night Tao and I made some hot pot at home which was delicious! We spent the afternoon roaming around Chinatown and bought a lot of fresh produce and some seafood and then came home and made the hot pot (after a long nap actually because we're both so lazy).
We worked really hard on it and it came out pretty good. We made it a different way from normal hot pot - it involved putting the food on skewers instead of just dropping them into the pot and scooping them out when ready. I'm so excited to utilize this hot pot maker more in the future (as well as shop in Chinatown for food now that I've gotten a home base on places that are good).
