New Year's Day: Steam Boat

On New Year's day, my friend J. and J. invited us to their place at Massey. There I met four sets of new friends.

J. was the hostess with the mostest. She had a roast leg of lamb, roast chicken, salad and we had steam boat.

Her steam boat was an electric pot, which heated soup so we could could our own morsel of food. She had chicken, fish balls, imitation crab claws, To Fu, green veg, golden mushroom, abalone mushroom.

For dessert, she baked almond topped brownies, appple pie and fruit salad of blue berries, strawberries, kiwi fruit and so on.

The guest brought some food.

***I was wondering where the food manufacturer got the crab claws from.

When I was little, Mum and Dad had a charcoal steam boat. It was a vessle with a hollow tube in the middle like a chinmey where the burning charcoal heated the soup and cooked the food. The steamboat was put at th emiddle of the table where everyone can cook their own food.***
