Sunday night we went for Hot Pot. It's basically like Fondu - there's a big pot in the middle of the table and one side is mild (like Egg Drop soup) and the other is screaming hot...spicy hot. They bring all kinds of meats/veggies that you can drop in to cook then eat.
Here is what passed my lips...
Goose intestine - very chewy - I swallowed it
Seaweed - very stringy and salty
Fish Balls - pretty good I might say
(If you're sick already turn back now)
Pig brain - it was very good the longer I left it in the broth- I ate it from the hot and spicy side to minimize the taste...but it was very squishy.
Sheep female part (v-j) - yes, I put this in my mouth and spit it out after chewing for awhile. I must say the Chinese are a strange people and want to use EVERY part of the poor animal!
Sorry to gross you out but it was part of the whole Shanghai experience!
Happy birthday mom - sorry I missed it but it might be worth it when I get home!
- Red Letter girl
- I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
