This is my reunion steamboat...
we had 2 tables so everything is duplicated...
and this year I am hosting so I bought and prepared everything
with the help of husband and maid.
Nice or not?
Quite impressive, I should say,
and there was plenty of leftovers.
She is making meatballs, in the tradition of her grandfather who always had this yummy meatballs for the steamboat, yummy because it was all meat!
she is rolling the meat, and making it into nice round balls...
(actually she is only posing, when it came to the nitty gritty, Emel did all the work !!! She needed these pics for her Moral Project at school)
The completed meatballs, ready for deep frying
Deep frying made the meatballs crispy and tastes heavenly when popped onto steamboat soup!
