Hike & Hotpot

One of my most favorite hiking trails in Bellingham is the one to Fragrance Lake. Off of Chuckanut Drive, this hike is beautiful and also challenging as you hike uphill practically the whole way up. But what awaits you at the top makes all the sweat worth it.

I love this natural illustration of death giving birth to life.

We had hotpot for dinner tonight. I grew up eating this meal and I love it. All you need is some sort of boiling device, whether that means an actual hotpot or even a rice cooker, you cook your meats in a broth in the pot and then add veggies and herbs onto rice paper, roll it up, dip it in peanut sauce and voila! you've got yourself an easy, healthy, and delicious dinner. And once you finish the main meal, you can do what we do, add some egg whites to the broth and have a little bowl of soup to top off your dinner.
