The weather is too warm for mid-November but that’s not going to stop us from enjoying a cold-weather favorite: nabe (hot-pot)! Tonight’s had hakusai, Korean noodles (like udon, but not quite as thick), chicken, and mizuna. So light but flavorful and yummy!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

A really nice dish to eat when the weather turns cold, as it’s doing right now, is Nabé, or Japanese hotpot. Tonight’s nabé was Korean-style, with plenty of spicy kimchee and sliced pork. The greens were nira, and we also had mushrooms, sausage, onion, cheese, and instant ramen noodles.

It was so delicious that I ate way too much. But it warmed me up and left me with a nice feeling of contentment. It’s funny how some foods can do that! 😌

I hope you had a nice day!
