This year I opted to go with a Liang family Xmas tradition - shabu shabu. It's the easiest and best dinner party fare ever. I had two pots... one for meats eaters and one for the vegetarians. I simply found quality fresh ingredients, prepped them for easy dipping/cooking, and voila... a beautiful spread.

Veggies included two kinds of tofu, 3 kinds of mushrooms, baby bok choy, spinach, bamboo shoots, daikon, and cellophane noodles.
