The Steamboat Party

Its our annual event! and somehow magically We were able to fit 25 people into the house for dinner! Wow!

Steamboat is a communal feasting mechaism where everyone gathers around a pot of steaming/boiling broth and around that pot is an array of goodies. Everyone throws goodies in and everyone scoops goodies out, pops them in their dipping bowls and chows down. You can be territorial and use your scoops to cook and keep, or my preferred way is to cook one for your mate and a few for yourself, and everyone digs in.

Here are some photos of the feast:
This is the before the feast started.
