Nabe Party

Posted in Food, Lately 2 Comments





“Let’s have a Sunday dinner party.”

“We should do Nabe (Japanese hot pot).”

…and 2 days later, this is what happened.

I love it when a spontaneous idea or suggestion comes up and it actually happens in no time, nicely and easily.

The food was planned, the location was decided, and the friends were invited. Simply it was great. I didn’t quite know how I became the one to prepare the food this time, but my Sunday already started with a long shopping list in my hand.


All the groceries were brought to our friend’s kitchen in the early evening, and the Nabe was slowly getting ready.



なぜか大根でしっかりポーズしてくれました (笑)。

This photo (above) makes me laugh!

Daikon (Japanese white radish) just couldn’t get any cuter than this next to that pose.


Thanks to our friend’s apartment (clean and beautiful), everything looked glorious already.


Warming up the Oshibori (hot wet hand towels) with a lemon.


Daikon Salad. (flavoured with sour plum, soy sauce, sesame oil and seaweed.)




Lots of vegetables, tofu, seafood, chicken meatballs… all cooked together in one big hot pot.

Good food always brings good people together. Thank you everyone for the most delightful Sunday night!

    I love this post, and that light in your friend’s place! Which reminds me, I haven’t had a sukiyaki party in my home for a while, but I shall do one now after your inspiring post!

    I love Sukiyaki! I have to add that to my next dinner plans, too.
