@claffeypools for the win! Pretty cool when the actual work turns out even better then the rendering. Gorgeous work, thank you for incorporating our fire feature into this job! #Repost#fireplace#firepot#firepit#bobe#pool#swimmingpool#backyard#landscape ・・・
Here is a brand new project designed by our very own @schindlerdesignco! You will see the 3D rendering that Reid designed on top and the finished final product on the bottom! Turned out BEAUTIFUL!
Cozy fall mornings call for a sweet Masala Chai Tea Latte. We value our partnership with Firepot because its aromatic and exotic spices are hand-blended and freshly ground for a uniquely vivid, balanced taste and we can’t get enough of it. We love them even more for supporting organic and Fair Trade practices and donating one percent of all sales to the empowerment of women and preservation of wildlife in tea origins. Give it a chai. 😉
So during my time in China I was really fortunate to be able to have a LOT of different meals. One I always got excited for has a hotpot. I must have gone to a dozen while I was there but each was very different simply from the center pot setup to the foods they offered. The seating was always very small regardless if us having 2 people or 15. The spicing and ingredients they used for each pot was different. This pot is called a yin yang pot for obvious reasons. Other times it's a separate container for hot or not hot.
Hot pot is a Chinese soup containing a variety of East Asian foodstuffs and ingredients, prepared with a simmering pot of soup stock at the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Typical hot pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, leaf vegetables, mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, tofu, and seafood. The cooked food is usually eaten with a dipping sauce. If you have never been before (luckily I was a pro from my previous travels to thailand) You order your base and then whatever ingredients you want to cook. You yourself then drop in your ingredients once the water is bubbling. Wait for it to be cooked to your liking and then you take it out. Usually there is a bar with other spices and ingredients, usually in a central location where you can go and grab whatever spices you want. This will be your dipping bowl. When your food is done- dip it into your spice bowl and then eat. Otherwise it's just the hotpot flavoring which is okay too. It's all preference at that point. The first time I ended up at a hotpot establishment I just stared for a while like - I think we cook this? Or is this like a hibachi place where they dump it in for us and pull it out... so much confusion- it's all about the new experiences
