best hot pot ever with little sheep hot pot soup base!

When we originally made the plan, I thought early October might be too warm to have hot pot, but thanks to Hurricane Joaquin, it turned out to be perfect weather. There is nothing better than simmering hot soup on a cold, dreary, dark, rainy, and windy day.

I usually make my own soup base with pork bones, but this time we used a packaged soup base and it. was. delicious. If you are a hot pot lover, you should really try it. The flavor was excellent, a little bit herbal without being medicinal. It's hard to describe, but everyone (my parents came over) liked it. Thanks to Luke's uncle for introducing us to this wonderful product :) When we left California, he gave us two packs....the house original and the "mala" spicy. We used the house original this weekend and I was feeling so down about it, haha. Fortunately, Amazon came to my rescue so pretty soon my pantry will be stocked with it again.

  1. yummy! I love hot pot. Since our local Asian supermarket closed down, I've yet to find one close enough to load up on supplies for hot pot. Glad to hear that Amazon sells the soup base, now I just need to find some place that sells the meatballs. We always have those with our hot pot :)

    1. No Asian supermarkets nearby?! I can't imagine...

  2. Thanks for the tip! Have you had the vegetarian BBQ sauce that is NOT the bull head's brand? It's got an orange Buddhist symbol on it and it's amazing.

    1. I just tried looking it up on Amazon and couldn't find it. Will have to look for it at the Asian grocery store next time. We have always used the bull head's brand....it would be nice to switch it up. Although with the Little Sheep soup base, the awesome flavor soaks through all the ingredients that I don't even need extra sauce.
