a cozy night in

Wife and I enjoyed a cozy dinner at home, making hotpot and barbecue. The small Changhong machine (like this) worked well for its purpose - we were able to simmer different ingredients in the hotpot compartment while grilling meat and vegetables on the other side. After dinner, we felt tired but content. The chillier weather had us wanting to stay indoors. Overall it was a simple, quiet night in -- exactly what we needed.
