I have watched this video about Korean Shabu Shabu a ton of times, it helps they are both funny and adorable together. Each time I see it I not only think it is a very good idea, but I also get very hungry. You use all the broth but don't have just one type of food. I always feel like the broth part of your meal at The Melting Pot is always wasted. You cook things in it, make it more interesting, then they take it away.
So I am going to do my own version on Shabu Shabu/Hot Pot! It is not going to be me trying to replicate what I saw, but more use what I saw as guild line.
In the picture is also the beginning of a shawl. It only has one stitch marker at this point because I thought I had two on me when I started it at the K&CC meeting yesterday but turns out I only had one.
For anyone who wants something like a recipe ingredient list, here is what I used:
- 2 c water
- 2 tsp Better Than Bullion veggie
- cooked rice (1/2 c uncooked rice cooked in 1 c water)
- 3 strips of bacon cut in half
- a handful of dried shiitake mushrooms
- big handful of spinach
- 1 egg
Another note: I know that Knitters and Crocheters Care meetings are usually the fourth Sat of the month and yesterday was only the second one. We lost the old room that we were meeting in, but Uniquities said we could move to their smaller class room. This is a pretty small space since it is also used as a storage area. We will have access to the room when they do not have a Sat class during the three hours we normally meet. This means that there will be no set weekend in each month for that space. However, last weekend we tried meeting at Wegmans. As usual, Wegmans is a fun place to meet. It also means I wouldn't have to leave early to get food before having to run to work. So our usual place will be Wegmans with a bonus weekend at Uniquitites.
