Pork Meatballs Hot Pot

Sunday Dinner

- Pork Meatballs Hot Pot

Hot pot (Nabe) is something many Japanese people make when they don't feel like cooking.  I am no exception.  Just throw everything in a pot and turn the heat on.  I chose pork meatballs for protein like last time.  The best for a chilly Sunday night.
