Gao Xiulan looked at the extra meat, flour, and sorghum noodles in the big urn, dumbfounded.
Holding back her tears.
“Oh, Dagen, you know my sufferings.
It’s not easy to raise your three sons and one daughter.
Our sons forget their mother when they marry their wives.
I have suffered.
Only our daughter is filial, but they still treat their sister badly.
In the next room, Su Qinghe couldn’t sleep anymore, so she just sat up and rubbed her eyes.
She’s a mother who can talk nonsense with her eyes open, very good, very powerful.
This is why she left the pot to her mother.
She wanted to take it out by herself but after thinking about it a few times, she didn’t think it would work.
She doesn’t have the ability to tell lies with her eyes open.
It will not be convincing.
Gao Xiulan is different.
It’s better to have her solve this problem.
Anyway, she1 would not have direct contact with the food that was taken out.
She just dreamed, who knew it will come true.
Of course, things can’t be taken out for nothing.
Su Qinghe walked out the door wearing a thin coat, and shouted at Gao Xiulan’s room, “Mom, what’s the noise? I’m still sleeping.”
Gao Xiulan’s speech stopped immediately, and within a few seconds, the door opened.
She looked at her precious girl with tears and snot on her face then pulled Su Qinghe into the room.
“Qing’er, quickly, quickly come.”
Su Qinghe was pulled into the room directly, the door closed, and the light was dim.
Gao Xiulan brought her to the side of the big urn and asked her to look inside.
“Qing’er, Qing’er what your dad said is true, he really helped us.”
Su Qinghe was shocked and trembled, “Mom, you, you said my dad gave this?”
“Yeah, I was also forced by those bastards so I have no other choice2.
Thinking of what you said, today I just casually look and these are what I found.”
Gao Xiulan said excitedly.
Su Qinghe said, “No, I was thinking about it yesterday, and I thought I might just be dreaming.
Why would there be such a thing? Isn’t the ancient feudal superstition are already against the law? Mom, could it be someone else put it here? Is it one of my brothers?”
Hearing that Su Qinghe didn’t believe it, Gao Xiulan got anxious, “They just don’t have this ability.
Qing’er, your dream is real.
It’s really your dad! I sleep against the door at night, I know who comes in.
I didn’t even notice who came in so it must have been your father!”
Su Qinghe looked scared, “Mom, I’m getting chills, should we report it to others?”
“You silly girl, what are you talking about? This is from your dad! It’s ours, you don’t need to reveal it to the public.”
Su Qinghe said, “But, how can we take these things out? I can’t tell them that my dad gave it.”
Gao Xiulan deeply agreed, “A man forgets his mother when he marries his wife.
If your brothers know about this they will tell your sisters-in-law.
Your sisters-in-law are outsiders, so they won’t care about us. In the future, if Old Lin’s family and Old Ding’s family will know, they will tattle it outside! Hey, it’s a pity that I don’t know how much your dad can deliver and when can he send it.
If he can keep sending, we can be separated from them! Let’s live alone! Anyway, your father is supporting us.
The men who already married can’t let your father raise them.”
Su Qinghe looked at the roof. I finally saw the reality of burning the bridge after crossing the river.
The thing is, she was actually somewhat moved by the talk.
It seems that living separately can really solve the problem.
Su Qinghe was still thinking about it, and Gao Xiulan said again, “Forget it, your dad can not be relied on.
We’ve been in poverty for years, and I don’t know what to do in the future.
It’s better to rely on your brothers.
Some people do the jobs at home and outside, and someone can take care of you.
If we split up, I won’t be able to control them anymore, so who will serve you in the future?”
“…Mom, what are we going to do now? We can’t eat it secretly.
The others will find out.”
Gao Xiulan looked grim as she thought about it.
Su Qinghe also thought about it.
Suddenly, she had an idea, “Mom, or let’s say it was given by someone else.”
“Who gave this thing so kindly these years?” Gao Xiulan shook her head.
Su Qinghe said, “Aiya3 mother, of course, it’s not for nothing.
Just say that we’ve done a good deed to others… For example, you or me, who saved someone’s life.
They are a big cadre4, their family has food so, to repay the kindness, they subsidize us.
In the future, if dad sends things here, we will go around the county town then come back, and say that they gave it.
If they ask which cadre, just say that they do not want to publicize it so that brothers and sisters-in-law will not disclose it to others.
If they do, they will not subsidize our family.
The most important thing is to convince our own family.
When brothers and sisters-in-law eat our food, can’t they be good to us? I know, I didn’t work, sisters-in-law and the others must be uncomfortable in their heart.”
Gao Xiulan frowned, “They dare!” Her face sagged.
However, she frowned and said solemnly, “You are right.
Now that I am still here, they still treat you well.
But when I’m gone, who will still be good to you? ” She started to feel sorry for her daughter again.
It looked as if her daughter was the most pitiful child in the world.
Su Qinghe’s mouth twitched, “So mom, then we?”
“Let’s go to the county later, and when we come back I will tell them that you have helped others find their missing child on the road.
They thanked you, so they gave you meat and noodles.
And also recognize them as your godparents.
Next time if your father still sends something, let’s say that they subsidize you.
I’ll see how they’ll say you don’t work when they eat the food you give!”
“Mom, you are really good to me.” Su Qinghe hugged her.
This mother is not the best but to her, she is really good.
After the mother and daughter made up their minds, Gao Xiulan carried the bamboo basket, put the things5 inside it then covered it with broken cotton wool.
She took Su Qinghe out with her.
Before leaving the house, she went to talk to Da Ya, who was washing clothes outside and told her to keep an eye on her younger siblings at home.
If the others came back and asked about them, just say that Su Qinghe was dizzy again and had to go to the county hospital.
Daya was happily responding.
She would rather work more, as long as her grandmother and aunt are not at home to keep an eye on her.
Gao Xiulan was really ready to take Su Qinghe to the county hospital for a check-up.
Some things need to be done so that people won’t find faults.
They have to do their best to not get caught.
Gao Xiulan felt sorry for her daughter on the way, “We have to walk so far, are you tired? I blame your brothers.
If it were not for the fear that they have wives and forget their mother, I would have taken them with us.
They are all heartless.
Only you and I are considerate.
Your father must also know that you are the most filial, that’s why he visited your dream.”
“……Mom, isn’t it because my eight characters are weak?”6
“Kind-hearted people are weak.
You are kind-hearted!” In Gao Xiulan’s eyes, her daughter is always the best.
The others are all black-hearted.
The two arrived at the county hospital.
The nurse still remembered them and looked at the coming like an enemy.
Gao Xiulan didn’t have time to quarrel with them today.
She just asked for her daughter to be examined.
When she heard that there was no problem, she asked for the soybeans.
The nurse gritted her teeth and said, “Auntie, it’s already spent.
Many malnourished patients don’t have enough food to eat.”
Gao Xiulan waved her hand unhappily, “Okay, okay, I just asked in passing, and you made such remarks.
This is not bullying our old peasants.
If my man was still alive, he would probably be a big cadre now.
My man is a martyr, he died in the war of liberation!”
Su Qinghe pulled Gao Xiulan hurriedly to go home and cook the meat.
Gao Xiulan snorted and took her daughter out of the hospital. Seeing them go, the others all breathed a sigh of relief.
After leaving the hospital, the two walked around the county seat before rushing home.
When the two returned home, it was already noon. Some people’s homes lit up cooking smoke, and some people’s homes could not eat at noon and were deserted.
Lao Su’s house was also deserted. Because Gao Xiulan is not at home and the kitchen is locked, no one in the family can cook.
Watching Gao Xiulan and Su Qinghe came back.
The whole family came out to greet them.
Su Aiguo and Su Aihua both looked worried, Su Aiguo said, “Mom, what’s wrong with sister? Why did she felt uncomfortable?”
Su Aihua said, “Did you not eat well?”
Gao Xiulan snorted, “Isn’t she exhausted? She has been cooking at home for the past two days.
Can you not be tired? The doctor in the hospital said, let her rest more!”
Su Qinghe: “…”
The eldest daughter-in-law of the Su family and the second daughter-in-law: “…”
Su Qinghe hurriedly said, “Big brother and second brother let’s go inside, we can eat meat today!”
As soon as the word meat came out, all the people of the Su family looked at her.
They thought their sister is dreaming.
Where can they eat meat these days? There is not even a single pig hair.
Gao Xiulan ignored them, and pulled her daughter directly into the kitchen door, and entered the kitchen.
The others quickly followed in.
When the adults entered the house, Gao Xiulan drove the children out, then closed the door and took out the contents of the basket.
Seeing the meat and white noodles Gao Xiulan brought out, the whole family was stunned.
Their throat moved and couldn’t help swallowing.
Su Aiguo said in a difficult voice, “Mom, where did this come from?” Their family can still eat meat?
Gao Xiulan said, “It’s because of your sister!”
The others looked at Su Qinghe.
Su Qinghe said happily, “Brother, you don’t know.
Mother and I went to the county hospital today.
When we were about to leave the county town, we ran into a child crying.
She looked pitiful, so I helped her find her parents.
The parents turned out to be cadres from the province, who came here to visit their relatives.
The child was almost lost.
To thank us, they gave me meat and flour.
They also recognized me as their goddaughter and said that if I encounter difficulties in the future I’ll go find them.”
Hearing Su Qinghe’s legendary experience, the family was overwhelmed with emotions as the sister got such a good thing for being kind and could help in the future.
Su Aiguo said excitedly, “Sister, brother knows that you are a kind and blessed person.”
Su Aihua said, “That’s right, although our elder sister didn’t experience love from father but us, brothers love her.
And now she met a noble person, who dares to say that our sister is not lucky?” Because the sister is a posthumous child, the villagers said she was born with a bitter fate.
When they were young, they often fought with others because of this.
Lin Shuhong and Ding Guihua looked at each other with mixed feelings.
They can still be exposed to the light of the sister-in-law, and they don’t know if the meat will be eaten by them.
Even if they don’t eat it, it’s okay to give it to the children.
Su Qinghe exhorted, “Brother, don’t talk about this.
The big cadres are secretly subsidizing us.
It’s not good to say it.
Now there is famine everywhere.
If people know that our family has noble people helping us, they will definitely be jealous of our family.”
Gao Xiulan snorted coldly, “Anyway, whoever leaks it outside and let the big cadres not help us in the future, will be the sinners of our family!”
Su Aiguo and Su Aihua hurriedly said, “Mom, we are a family, we definitely won’t talk about it.”
Lin Shuhong and Ding Guihua also nodded quickly.
“Well, today Qing’er said she wants to learn to cook meat dishes.
Eldest daughter-in-law and the second daughter-in-law stay here to help.”
The two responded in a hurry.
Ding Guihua whispered, “Mom, do we eat meat today?”
“Eat, eat, all you know is how to eat.
If it’s not for Qing’er, you guys wouldn’t eat a thing!” Gao Xiulan cursed.
If it wasn’t for Qing’er’s desire to try making meat dishes, she wouldn’t have taken out a single bite, and would have dried it all for New Year’s Eve!
Remember that they have to hand over 20 catties of food.
It’s an interjection like “Oh!”
Big Cadre = a Major Official
So, it’s like ghosts can visit you or haunt you if you have a weak spirit.
Ding Guihua suddenly did not dare to speak.
She honestly went to brush the pottery jar, while Lin Shuhong lighted the fire and waited for her sister-in-law to cook something.
The two were busy preparing, and Su Qinghe also cut off a small piece of pork belly under Gao Xiulan’s fiery eyes.
There is only one catty of pork belly, so they definitely can’t eat it all at once.
In this famine year, you have to keep whatever grain you can save.
So, Gao Xiulan only asked Su Qinghe to cut off a small piece of meat and cut it into slices to cook and eat.
The others were rubbed with salt and hung on the beams of the kitchen to dry.
It will be consumed slowly.
It just so happened that the youngest son, Su Aidang was still outside making steel and hasn’t returned, so he could still have a bite when he came back.
Gao Xiulan is a little estranged from her two sons who have been married and had children, but this one1 has not yet married, Gao Xiulan more or less still values him.
After all, before even marrying a wife, her son and she could barely meet.
Seeing Su Qinghe carefully cutting the meat slices, leaving a handful of meat oil in her hands, Ding Guihua and Lin Shuhong kept swallowing.
Su Qinghe looked at the two of them and deliberately said, “Sister-in-law, I don’t know if the meat I cooked is good.
If you think it is not good, I won’t cook in the future.
I don’t want to waste things.”
Hearing Su Qinghe’s words, Ding Guihua immediately said, “Sister, your cooking is definitely delicious.”
Su Qinghe threw the meat slices into the pot and asked her sister-in-law Lin Shuhong to add firewood to the fire.
The children smelled the scent, and they were all drooling at the door frame.
However, because Gao Xiulan didn’t like children going into the kitchen, none of them dared to go in.
Even the grandson Su Dabao is the same as the little grandson Su Erbao.
It seems that after a long time, the cooked meat slices and coarse grain paste are finally on the table.
It’s a big pot.
And because of the fatty meat in it, it looks like there’s more oil than water; very appetizing.
Gao Xiulan started to divide the meal with a stern face.
“These are all brought back by Qing’er.
Qing’er eats more.” She directly gave Su Qinghe a big scoop.
Su Qinghe really wouldn’t eat such food before, but now she has no choice.
Except for Su Qinghe, who enjoys the privileged treatment, the others are allocated according to their labor.
The children got a piece of meat more or less.
As soon as the food arrived in the bowl, everyone ate it with great gusto.
It was like eating a big meal.
As they were eating, Su Qinghe said, “How’s my cooking?”
“It’s delicious, delicious, really delicious.” Su Aiguo said.
The others nodded eagerly, “It’s delicious.”
How can meat not be delicious?
Su Qinghe’s head buzz for a second, then finally felt relieved.
Sure enough, there are still loopholes in the system.
Who can say that meat is not good in this era? Whoever eats a bite of meat, absolutely from the depths of their heart sentiment …… ‘delicious!’
After eating, Lin Shuhong and Ding Guihua clean up the dishes, and Su Qinghe sat at the door to rest.
The feeling of eating and drinking is good.
She squinted into the system and took a look.
Three catties of rice were already inside.
The data in the skill point column is currently:
She has cooked five meals so far.
Except for one that was not recognized, the other four have received affirmation from the others.
She only needs to get approval from one person every time she cooks.
With the current number of people in the family, as long as she cooks for a few more days, she won’t need anyone’s approval in the future.
And these few times, she also discovered that others can help with the cooking, as long as she puts things in the pot and she is the one who is in charge.
It’s too easy to cook.
Same as boiling instant noodles.
The Su family had a meal of meat, and they looked vigorous when they went to work.
On the way, the two brothers of the Su family felt particularly emotional when they saw other people’s faces tightening their trousers and belts.
“It’s all thanks to sister, Shuhong, we have to be nice to her in the future.” Su Aiguo said.
For him, who is planning to raise a sister for a lifetime, it is beyond words to be able to eat a bite of meat with his sister.
Lin Shuhong: “…” When did I treat sister-in-law badly? She just couldn’t understand that her mother-in-law was too partial, and her eldest daughter and third daughter were not treated as human.
She felt uncomfortable.
She stared at her man, ‘when can this stupid man open his mind?.’
Next to her, Ding Guihua licked her lips.
To prevent people from discovering that they had eaten meat at home, she cleaned her mouth long before going out, but she still felt that her mouth was fragrant.
Although she is not convinced that the sister-in-law enjoys the privileges at home, she still has to thank her for this meal.
“It would be great if I could meet nobles as the sister did.” Ding Guihua said with full expectation.
Su Aihua smiled, “How can you compare with our sister? Our elder sister is attractive at first glance.
People will like her.
If it’s you instead, they will give a few catties of cornmeal to send you off.”
Ding Guihua: “…” Why did I go blind and fell in love with such a man?
She angrily hurried away.
On the road, she ran into the wife of Su Dapao of the same village.
The wife of Dapao looked at her and said, “Guihua, you quarreled with your man again because of your sister-in-law? To be honest, your mother-in-law spoiled your sister, and it’s really unbearable to watch.
I feel shameful when I look at it.
You see my mother-in-law loves me a lot, and I eat first at home.
The older sisters and younger sisters are all behind.
Can a married girl compare with the daughter-in-law who comes in?”
Ding Guihua agreed with this person very much.
Her mother-in-law’s attitude towards her sister-in-law2 was really too shameful, not to mention the whole village, but the whole team and the whole commune could not find a second one like this.
But she slammed her mouth, thinking of the meat at noon, in the end, her mouth was a little soft, “What do you care about? Did I let you take care of our family’s affairs? That’s our old Su family’s business!”
The wife was hit by Ding Guihua, and the corners of her mouth twitched.
It’s over, Ding Guihua is not normal.
Da Pao’s wife was angry and left, Ding Guihua waited for Su Aihua to come over, “Do you know what Da Pao’s wife said?”
Su Aihua crooked his mouth, “What can she say? She’s just doesn’t like seeing other people’s families are doing good.
Don’t listen to her nonsense.”
“Da Pao’s wife is the first one to eat at home.
I do not wish to be the first one to eat but I want to eat as much as your sister.
I’m also a daughter-in-law.
Why is the gap so big?” Ding Guihua’s heart suffocated.
She works more than cows, eats less than chickens, and has to be angered by her mother-in-law and sister-in-law… Why can’t her man see her grievances?
Su Aihua looked at her inexplicably, “Are you stupid? Can this be compared? There are two daughters-in-law and one daughter.
We will definitely have three daughters-in-law and one daughter in the future.
It’s obvious, isn’t it?”
Ding Guihua looked at the sky, her heart hurts.
Knowing that there are meat and white noodles at home, even if they can’t eat much; it gives people hope.
When working, the four members of the Su family worked very hard.
The old captain Guo Changsheng was very satisfied with this, and when he was off work, he also specially named and praised the active performance of the old Su family in labor.
At this time, the Su brothers and their two wives are wondering whether they can eat meat if they go home today.
With the help of meat, Su Qinghe received the sincere approval of others for the next few meals.
And the system did not find this loophole.
After getting the approval of the last family member, the two-year-old nephew, Su Qinghe went back to the room with joy to check the system.
There have been several rewards in the storage space.
Except for a few times that the sorghum noodles were delivered to the big urn, the other meats and rice white noodles were temporarily kept.
The meat that was sent the first time is not yet finished, so she put a little bit of it in the pot every day, so it will taste meaty.
Su Qinghe didn’t intend to let the family live too extravagantly at once.
This is a famine year, too extravagant is not normal.
As for her own daily millet porridge and eggs …cough cough, this is not the point, the point is that through her own efforts, she has made her family members have oil and water in their stomachs, and doesn’t need to tighten their belts.
What makes her most happy is that the skill point in the food column has reached 10 points.
“System system, didn’t you say that 10 points is a perfect score? I feel that my current cooking skills are at most the level of an average cook in a small restaurant.
Your requirements for military wives are not too high.”
“Host, please note that the current level of the host is the basic A-level culinary qualification standard.”
“There is a higher level?” Su Qinghe asked in surprise.
“Host, please note that the highest level is the S-level, and the standard is the level of the top chef of the interstellar; you can make food that will glow.”
“…” Powerful ah.
Food can still glow!
“Then how can I level up? I don’t have to get approval from other people again, do I?”
“Host, please note that as long as it gets the approval of all family members and has 10 skill points, the cooking skill will automatically be upgraded to B level, and the host will proceed to the cooking skill B level upgrade assessment process.
The B-level cooking skill assessment is a system assessment.
Each time you pass, you will get 1 skill point and double the material reward.
The specific assessment method system will be issued to the host after the upgrade.”
“…” Su Qinghe felt that she had once again refreshed her understanding of the system.
This system is to tempt you to work all the time and improve your abilities.
However, as the material reward increases, the difficulty also increases.
System assessment…there is no way to take advantage of it.
Su Qinghe knew in her heart that she was completely taking advantage of the loopholes.
If she lived in the 21st century when the streets were full of various kinds of food, she would definitely not be able to get the approval of others so easily.
Thanks to the lack of food and clothing in the sixties, a few pieces of meat and it’s done.
Of course, the average family in the 21st century does not have as many people as her current family…
Forget it, anyway, she has reached the elementary level.
According to the system, as long as the family members approve it, she can be upgraded.
She can always upgrade it now.
Anyway, junior cooking skills can also be rewarded.
It just got less.
The next morning, Su Qinghe cooked herself a meal.
Try to see if she can get a reward.
After cooking the millet porridge, she waited to upgrade.
As a result, nothing happened after waiting for a long time.
“System, what about upgrading?”
“Host, please note that there are currently family members who have not approved the host’s cooking skills.”
“How is it possible, or where did my 10 skill points come from?”
“Host, please note that there are still family members who have not approved the host’s cooking skills.” The machine repeated the sentence.
Su Qinghe suddenly became depressed.
She narrowed her eyes and suddenly thought of someone.
“…I forgot, I still have another brother…”
Su Qinghe came to this world for almost ten days, Su Aidang has not returned from taking part in steelmaking tasks outside.
So she never saw her third brother Su Aidang once.
In her memory, Su Aidang is the one who protects the original owner the most… If someone bullies Su Qinghe, Su Aiguo and Su Aihua are going to scare people, and Su Aidang is the kind that rushes forward and throws a fist.
The three sons of the Su family, Su Aiguo is honest, Su Aihua is sleek, and Su Aidang is cranky.
Very good, this combination is very powerful.
Su Qinghe felt that it was time for her to send a loving bento to her brother.
Su Qinghe was thinking about upgrading, while Gao Xiulan looked at the big urn in her room every day.
There are several pounds of sorghum noodles in it now and then.
Although it is coarse grains, it can be eaten.
She felt relieved.
And she thought the sorghum noodles are pretty good too, at least she didn’t have to go to the county town. She can mix them with their grain and no one will notice it.
“Dagen, You send some meat for the family.
This busy farming time, the family always need to eat some oil.”
She only made a wish, and within two days, there was a catty of meat in the big urn at home.
In the morning, Gao Xiulan immediately proposed to go to the county town to see her relatives, and by the way, see if she could catch the autumn breeze.
“Mom, let me go too.
If I don’t go, I am worried that others will give you a hard time.” Su Qinghe said.
Gao Xiulan said, “it’s too hard for you.
It’s so far.” Pointing to her sons and several daughters-in-law, and grandchildren, “For you bastards, Qing’er is going to be tired again!”
The others bowed their heads.
When everyone in the family went to work, Gao Xiulan was carrying a basket and preparing to go out.
Su Qinghe said, “Mom, I want to make some food for my third brother.
He hasn’t come back in ten days.
He hasn’t eaten a single bite of the meat at home.
He must be working very hard to make steel.”
Gao Xiulan sighed, “No, it’s all nonsense.
There is not enough food to eat.
Can iron be used for food? It’s been refining for several years.
We’ve lost a pot, and we didn’t see how famous they said it can be3.
After speaking, she said again, “Quick Qing’er, I will tell your dad to see if he can bring us a pot.”
Watching Gao Xiulan and Su Qinghe leave, DaYa led her younger siblings to look at the backs of the two, eagerly watching.
Remember that it was the era where people focused on steelmaking and neglected the agriculture industry
