Nabe Party... one way to stay warm!!!

With winter fast approaching here in Hokkaido… the locals like to stay warm by breaking out the nabe dishes!!!!

A few friends and I decided to try and keep warm by throwing our own nabe party…..

For those of you who don’t know nabe it is a DELICIOUS concoction of veggies, tofu, noodles, mochi, spices or sauces and meat or seafood. You cook it all at the table while continuously adding various ingredients and changing up the pot…. It’s probably one of my favorite Japanese foods! Mmm….

Steph even broke out her homemade ume-shu which she had made last summer… yummm….

Homemade dessert by the girls.......
