If you're a regular reader, you may be wondering why I haven't been a regular poster recently. Well, the time has finally come when I can reveal what's been taking up so much of my time, what I've been hard at work on since Thursday:
Tomato and egg soup. Literally the easiest Chinese recipe in the book. Stew the tomatoes in a pot with a bowl's worth of water, beat an egg, pour the egg in the pot, stir it around for five seconds, and serve. There you go, everyone-that-has-asked-me-if-I-can-cook-Chinese-food-yet: YES I CAN. And in case you were wondering, It counts as Chinese food because I used chopsticks for everything. Also because I did it in China (biatch)!
I saw the following in a hip new library on Beijing Lu Pedestrian Shopping Street. It's a picture book, a page-by-page illustration of a classic bed-time story we're probably all familiar with:

Let's see: food, awkward non-native English.... what else do I post about here? Oh right, puzzles. The answer to the puzzle I gave last week is "BITE" for all the horizontal clues. So the vertical answers are "bees," "eyes," "tease" and "ease."
