Shabu Shabu

That guy that I like so much and I squeezed in a lunch counterpart at work just had a new baby, so I'm working lots in the next few weeks...thankfully most of it from home.  That being said, I've missed my boyfriend.

We're kinda spoiled.

Lunch...well, we were adventurous and followed the recommendation of a 14 yr old boy from Japan who happened to be riding in our car last weekend.

"What?"he said. 
"You've never had shabu-shabu?  You're totally missing out!"

Sigh.  The gauntlet was thrown down and for two whole days all I heard from that guy that I like so much was the fact that we had never tried the newest food phenom.  


Basically, pots full of seaweed broth are put on burners in front of you.  It boils and you are given huge plates of meat and vegetables and noodles  and you swish your food in the hot broth to cook it.   You then dip it in sauces and eat it with rice...not especially easy if you have Italian girl chop stick skills.


Amazing.  Utterly, utterly amazing.

So, my friends, have you ever tried shabu-shabu?

In other news?  We are eating and sleeping and snoring and talking about basketball in these parts.  

And fantasy football, which I don't much understand, but I had a houseful of boys here on laptops last night during the draft.

Supper last night, thanks to a trip to Costco with my soon to be 19 year old, were huge new york strips on the grill with baked potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts on the side.  And a pumpkin pie for dessert.

He chose well.
