During Christmas – Lina – Chloe’s Kai Mah from Singapore – sent me these ingredients for my soup – because she knows that I can’t get some of them here. So she packed carefully dried oysters and dried scallops and mailed them so generously to me. I didn’t get a chance to make any soup till this week – because i couldn’t get any lotus roots from this small town. But Mr R – was so kind – to pick it up for me.. when he was in the city this week – so I hurriedly boiled soup in my slow cooker in the morning and cooked some rice for dinner for Chloe and I.
Chloe loves the soup and ate 2 dinners with the soup. I usually put in rice and soup for her and fried some luncheon meat to entice her to eat. I was heavy handed with my dried oysters this time.. so was afraid she won’t drink it. The day that i boiled the soup was a very, very cold day – we had so much snow.. PB and I spent hours shoveling ourselves outtta the driveway that morning. School were closed and we only opened store at 1pm, therefore it was quite comforting .. to come home to a boil of soup from home. Thanks again .. Lina..! your generosity warms not only our heart but our tummy.
