Picking Up a General to Plow the Fields Chapter 20 / Chapters List

Chapter 20 Mrs Liu  came to insult/yell again part 1

   Lian Fang Zhou bitterly smile, secretly self-deprecating: she think too highly of herself, actually wishful thinking that a man would be willing to work hard for her, fight for her, give her everything ... ...

   For a nearly thirty-year-old person to still have such unrealistic dream ah! Is it because transmigrated to a really young body? Or is it because she want dependent on someone?

   Pai(mentally spitting)! This great aunt can rely on herself, why need to rely on men? Having no man, can still live very well!

   Lian Fang Zhou poured the water out of the basin, dried her hands and turned back to return to the house.

   Noon time they simply ate something. Then Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze, the two people went to the mountains to move stuff.

   Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che were tired from the morning, so both stayed at home.

   Lian Fang Qing's precious mushrooms that was gathered were incredible, once return she and Lian Che the two of them got some water, one by one scrub them clean and place it there, want Lian Fang Zhou to promised to cook them tonight, then was contented, facial features curved into smile.

   The two siblings to move back and forth for four times before they finished. so tired that back ache, legs ache and arm ache.

Lian Fang Zhou wipe off the sweat on the forehead, rubbed the aching shoulder secretly sighed: These farm work can be really labourous/tough! According to me and Ah Ze's amount of labor, want to go according to plan- have to dig the soil fill four people's stomach, but also for Che er go to school, in the future Ah Ze and Che'er have to marry a wife, Qing er also need dowry, it is really too Difficult! How should I with the background of professional researcher of agricultural feel then ah! This year no problem, but next year, need to change the working method ... ...

   Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze came home in the evening, the two little guys feel how tired they were, so they were very sensible/thoughtful, when to fetching water for them wash their hands and face, pour tea. Lian Fang Qing clenched her hands into small fist to pound her sister back(i.e. massage). Lian Che thoughtfully went to the kitchen to prepare the fire to cook ... ...

   Lian Fang Zhou was pleased, for the sake of this feeling they showed, she must let her family live a good life.

   After a short break, Lian Fang Zhou cooked a half pot of water in the iron pot on the stove, slicing the ash-bag mushrooms one by one.

   When the pot of water boiled, she placed the slices in, stir for a while with chopsticks. After about three or four minutes drain it, placed it in a basin filled with water to float.

   While doing this, she casually said to Lian Ze, Lian Fang Qing: "Need to say that the variety of mushrooms in the mountains, different types have different treatment/way of cooking. Some can be directly fried or used in soup. Some need to use cold water soak overnight. Some need to be boiled and some have to use salt to salted over or else, ah, recklessly eating it is easy have problems! The most villagers in village doesn't know that, so when they see them but dare not pick them!"

   Lian Fang Qing started clapping, full of worship smiled: "Sister is very awesome! Sister know everything! From now on we pick a lot!"

   Lian Ze also came to realization and lightly nodded, hearing what Lian Fang Zhou said he subconsciously glanced at Lian Fang Zhou. and he did not question alot. he  had said, no matter what his sister did, he unconditionally believed it! Believe that she have them in her heart!

Porridge was nearly done, Lian Fang Zhou burn more firewood to make the (side)dishes. The ash bag mushroom was that was done soaking, were drained, the garlic cut into paste,ginger cut into shreds, and then chopped a few dry chili pepper. only wait a bit for pan to be a hot. first the ginger, garlic and dried hot pepper sizzled in pan. and then stir in the ash bag mushroom.

   Under the action of the fire, very soon, the natural wild mushrooms carried a unique aroma and spreaded< use emitted?>, with ginger, garlic and dry chili flavor it became a very appetizing flavor.

   Lian Fang Qing looked at the pan of stir fry mushroom, thinking that they have picked these, a sense of pride spontaneously arose.

   Once out of the pan, she rushed forward to help carry it, she exaggerately sniffed with her nose, while smiling til her face was blooming: "Really fragrant ah!

   Lian Ze glanced at that big bowl of oily mushroom, he rather distressed, whispered: "how can it not smell fragrant, putting in so much oil ... ..."

   Lian Fang Zhou surprised for a moment, her heart secretly felt ashamed and bad.

She comes from the modern time, so also had the modern habits, she cooked with more oil and did not feel is anything! However, the first not talk about the oil in ancient times being expensive, their family right now cannot afford to eat the oily dish at home ah!

   "This, this is my fault! A moment of being careless!" Lian Fang Zhou wrily smiled, thought of last night's fried eggs, when she cooked, didn't she also put in two tablespoons of oil too!

Yesterday, presumably Lian Ze has tolerated and did not say anything. tonight seeing that she done it again, he could not stand it.

    According to her own cooking, afraid this half bottle of oil will run out after half a month. Long afterward did Lian Fang Zhou found out that half bottle of oil, could originally be used for half a year!

    "This oil is expensive, from now on I'll put less in cooking!" Lian Fang Zhou smiled toward Lian Ze.

    Lian Ze then smiled: "In fact, putting oil in or not is the same, can't fill the stomach, put two drops in is enough."

    "Okay!" Lian Fang Zhou smiled as she nodded, more and more guilty of her own ignorance.

    After the four finished dinner, Lian Che didligently cleaned up the table and went to the kitchen. while Lian Fang Qing went to wash the dishes.

    Lian Fang Zhou saw that a big pot of evening bath water has been boiled. actually she was tired, let by the two little ones busy themself, while she herself sat in the main room to rest. Her mind consciously wondering how the future days going to be lived.

Not thinking, a good evening, but somehow some people just wanted to come and create an unbearable scene.

Outside sounded a sharp condemning yell. This yell Lian Fang Zhou is very familiar with, this is the condemning yell she had hear when she just come transmigrated. Hua Family's daughter-in-law , Mrs Liu came again.

   It seems that the matter during the day was known by Hua Family's people, can't endure the anger so they sent their daughter-in-law over to scold.

   "Obviously it was the Yang Family who provoke matters/cause trouble. Based on what, does she come to

our doorstep to curse/insult/tell off people! I'll go to chase her away!" Lian Ze angerily rushed.

   "Better I go!" Lian Fang Zhou stopped him, light footstep quickly came to the yard, filled a basin of cold water and fast walked toward outside. "Splash!" and it was poured toward the Mrs Liu again.

   And the differences from last is that water was in a bigger basin and cooler. And the splashing range/strength is also greater.

   "AHH! Lian Fang Zhou, you, you—achoo!" Mrs Liu did not expect to get another splash of water 'from heaven/out of nowhere'. She was shocked as well as angry, she sneezed as she was soaking cold  as well as being anxious.

   "What you! Are you addicted to insulting, you shrew? Have problems or not, you run to our home to run wild? Think this great aunt is good to bullied, right? Still not scramming, otherwise I will splash you!" Lian Fang Zhou shout as she menacingly stare at her.

   "You, you, you seduce our family son-in-law, you'r shameless!" Mrs Liu embarrassed as wiping off water on her face, directed a glare at Lian Fang Zhou, and shouted: "Quickliy come and see, ah, you quickly come look ah! Lian Family's girl making a scene! She hit someone(TLN-she didn't)! Shamelessly seduce men also walking sideway(running from reponsibility/crime. If you read stunning edge when cliff trying to make claire his disciple, you'll get it)! Come and see ah!"

   "Mrs Liu, you dare to talk nonsense again!" Lian Ze paled with anger.
