Christmas Dinner

We spent Christmas in England with my brother an his family. Since air tickets were cheapest flying a red-eye on the 24th, we arrived mid-afternoon on Christmas day. In our family, there's no better meal after a long flight than hot pot, so we had a very enjoyable evening together dipping things into hot soup.

Hot pot is great for groups because there's very little prep involved. Just boil some water, and everyone just cooks and eats as they want. Traditional ingredients include sliced meat, any sort of leafy vegetable, fish cakes, squid, shrimp, and anything else you can boil. Our family uses a raw egg, soy sauce, and sa cha (I think it's some sort of brill shrimp sauce/paste) as the dipping base.
