One homely steamboat day

Just yesterday right before dinner time, I asked the Hubby what he wants to have for dinner, and almost instantly, he shouted he wants steamboat! Hmm him and his steamboat.

But right after he said that, he said he wants to have the steamboat tomorrow, which is today, a Sunday. Reason is because we will be doing our body check up tomorrow (yikes!) at Gleneagles Hospital. We have to fast 10 hours before our appointment at 9am. That means we have to stop eating from about 9pm onwards. So, by having steamboat, we can prolong our dinner time and hopefully fill our stomachs for a longer time period.

So fine. I agreed with steamboat. Then, the Hubby said the most bizarre thing - "Let's cook our own steamboat at home!". I was obviously caught off guard, and he said "we can go to Tesco and prepare the items tomorrow afternoon". I was just excited to be able to utilize my kitchenware, so I agreed gleefully.

Pumped with maximum excitement, we dis our grocery shopping in Tesco this afternoon and bought a few steamboat items. After an hour cleaning and slicing and cutting, the ingredients are all prepped.BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

This is one of our best dinners at home. So much fun and so "domestic". We enjoyed ourselves so much.
