Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 171
Lin Lan tied the things to the bicycle and made another trip to the butcher. Although there was no meat ticket, she could buy some pig water, bones, knuckles, etc.. As long as she was lucky enough to run into something that needed money, she could buy it.
Lin Lan was lucky as she bought a pig’s tail, a pig’s liver, and two trotters.
She rode her bike home and the children have returned from their tasks. Dawang was also seen carrying buckets of water.
He could only pick two and a half buckets at a go now. His shoulders were a little low and his waist was involuntarily hunched.
Erwang was cooking and Maisui ran after Sanwang, telling him not to go into the water. She was also instructing Xiaowang to drive the ducks back as she chopped wild vegetables for them to eat.
The three hens ate the food with their claws at the gate of the courtyard, so they did not run back to the old lady’s house by themselves.
Lin Lan was very satisfied.
When the kids ran over and helped her unload things, Lin Lan whispered, “Go and boil some water, let’s cook pig trotters and tails to eat.”
The children were excited so they went to help one another. First, the pig trotters and pig tails were roasted on the fire and scalded with boiling water. Then, they were boiled in a pot with onion and ginger aniseed.
In addition, they soaked a large amount of soybeans. When it was done, they threw them into the pot and simmered it together.
It needed to be stewed for at least an hour, so it couldn’t be eaten at noon—only at night.
So at noon, they would still eat as usual and take a break after eating to go to work.
When Lin Lan went to work, she told the children, “When you’re done, you can come back for soup. All of you can drink a large bowl of pig’s trotter soup each.”
In the room of the County Public Security Bureau.
Han Qinghua grimaced, “Brother, you have to save me.”
Zhao Jianguo looked embarrassed, “Jinbao… ah, brother, it’s not that the eldest brother doesn’t want to save you, but look at what you did yourself. You dared to read those books? How many times have I reminded you not to?”
What’s the use of talking about these scenes now? You read a lot yourself. Han Qinghua didn’t dare to say it as he thought about it. He already hated Lin Lan and Dawang in his heart.
Through Zhao Jianguo, he already knew that it was Dawang who started the report and of course, it had to be Lin Lan who instigated it. Otherwise, how could that stupid boy have such thoughts?
After talking about it, Zhao Jianguo just didn’t let go and said, “My uncle doesn’t care about this, he belongs to the factory…”
“Isn’t your uncle able to talk to the people from the Ministry of National Defence of the Revolutionary Committee? Let him help me,” Han Qinghua was really anxious. Although no one beat him or criticised him yet, being locked here was enough for him to suffer. Upon listening to others crying, his heart shuddered.
When he was let out, he would definitely not let that vicious woman go!
“I wanted to do so, but unfortunately I can’t. You know how much my uncle paid him for a meal, so we can’t get him unless it’s a big issue. Before this, I could get his help with 500 Yuan, but now, sigh,” Zhao Jianguo shook his head and sighed.
“Five hundred Yuan?” Han Qinghua’s eyes lit up, “I know where to get it, not to mention five hundred yuan; one thousand yuan is also available.”
Zhao Jianguo was also very interested, “Where? Hurry up!”
Han Qinghua looked around.
Zhao Jianguo smiled and said, “Don’t worry, no one will hear us here.”
