on monday, we had a shabu shabu party. while ppl usually have beef for shabu shabu, hopeland has its shabu shabu party with pork 😛 while the farm has more than 200 pigs, it has only 2 cows for their yummy milk. in fact, besides a chicken dish we had for lunch yesterday, we always have pork n fish. i hadnt eaten any beef since i came to hokkaido, but until last nite 🙂 last nite we had a 焼肉 bbq party inside an emptied-out strawberry house in hopelands strawberry farm. its an excellent place for bbq. its huge, very much in the nature, yet, we were shielded frm the wind n rain (it rained a little last nite).
bbq party last nite, preparing n starting up the fire for the party 😉
unexpectedly, we had beef last nite! n draft beer too!
shabu shabu party on monday, the pork actually looks like beef (but still, tastes like pork… )
homemade strawberry ice-cream, with hopeland’s milk n strewberries. its so good, even for me who dont like ice cream much, i somehow didnt have enough of it n asked for refill 😛
