Chapter 10 - Selling Pastries
With the money in her hand, Li Hehua immediately began to act.
The first thing that she did was to go to town and buy the ingredients for making pastries.
She bought some red beans and some fresh eggs from the villagers who came to the town to sell things, then went to the shop to buy a bag of white sugar.
Finally, she went to the place where oil paper bags were sold and bought a stack of it.
She's going to use it to pack the pastries for the guests when they are sold tomorrow.
After buying these, she went to the shop that specializes in pastries to inquire about the price.
The pastry shop where she came to is the most affordable one among the shops selling pastries in the town.
She plans to based on the price of this pastry shop in the future.
With that, there will be no customers who will think that her goods are too expensive.
This restaurant also has red bean cakes.
The price is seven cents a pound.
Li Hehua stood aside and looked at it.
A customer bought a pound of red bean cakes.
There were about four pieces of red bean cakes in it, that is to say, it is about 2 cents per piece.
Learning this, she plans to cut the cakes a bit bigger, and then sell them for two cents per piece.
The chicken cake is also the same price.
After buying the things and asking about the price, Li Hehua returned home with a smile.
After waiting until the others finished their dinner and Zhang Lin cleaned the pots and bowls, Li Hehua went into the kitchen with the materials she had bought.
She first started to mix the flour, then beat eggs and steamed red beans...
Outside, The Zhang family sat and talked in the yard.
Listening to the jingling sound in the kitchen, Zhang Lin couldn't help but mutter, "What is she doing She won't ruin our family's things, right"
Zhang Qingshan was also very unhappy, "Brother, this woman is really annoying, I really don't want to live with her."
Zhang Tieshan didn't speak.
He hugged Shulin and patted him gently.
Seeing that Zhang Tieshan didn't speak, Zhang Lin who was also used to his eldest son's taciturn nature, talked about other topics with her younger son.
But after a while, a strange fragrance suddenly float to the yard, which made people want to drool involuntarily.
Zhang Qingshan sniffed vigorously, "Is this the smell of pastries Who bought cakes It's really fragrant!"
Zhang Lin also took a deep breath, "It's pastry, but the smell is different from the pastries in town.
It's more fragrant than the ones sold in the shop.
What kind of pastry is this"
Zhang Qingshan involuntarily stood up and sniffed hard, focusing on the source of the fragrance in the air.
After a while, he said with disbelief, "Mother, why do I feel that this is from our family"
Zhang Lin subconsciously denied, "How is it possible When did our family buy pastries"
Zhang Qingshan said: "Mother, it seems to be true.
The fragrance came from our house and it seems to be from the kitchen..."
Zhang Lin looked at the kitchen and doubts flashed in her eyes.
Could it be it is that woman who bought it then eat in the kitchen
Zhang Tieshan, who had not spoken for a long time said at this moment, "Mother, Qingshan, sit down.
It is from our kitchen."
Zhang Linshi and Zhang Qingshan looked at each other and sat down.
Zhang Lin couldn't help but mutter, "This woman is always like this.
She is lazy and buys expensive things like cakes to eat.
She even hides in the kitchen and eats them alone.
It's really a shame for our family to marry such a woman.
If it wasn't for her father..."
"Mother!" Zhang Tieshan's scolding blocked Zhang Linshi's next words.
Zhang Linshi pursed her lips and did not talk any further.
Zhang Qingshan glanced at his brother and then at his mother and kept quiet.
He subconsciously looked in the direction of the kitchen and saw Li Hehua came out with a plate, coming towards the yard.
Li Hehua had just finished the red bean cake and chicken cake.
She cut them into pieces, found a basket and spread a layer of clean white cloth inside, waiting to go out to sell them early tomorrow.
However, she deliberately set aside four pieces of each item, intending to give them to the Zhang family to eat.
The money for her materials was borrowed from Zhang Tieshan, and the kitchen she used was also from Zhang's family.
The firewood, rice, oil and salt were all from Zhang's family.
It was reasonable to give some to the Zhang family to taste.
In addition, she wanted to give the little guy some pastry that she made.
So this time, she came out with the pastries in person.
Li Hehua walked over while ignoring the unkind eyes of Zhang Linshi and Zhang Qingshan.
She put the plate on the small square table, "This is the red bean cake and chicken cake that I made.
They are just out of the oven.
Brought them for you to try."
Zhang Lin's and Zhang Qingshan's eyes flashed with surprise.
They both thought that she bought the pastries and came back to eat them.
They didn't expect that she actually made them.
How could it be impossible Li Hehua can make such delicious and beautiful pastries Could it be a lie
Li Hehua also saw the distrust in their eyes.
She didn't say anything and just pretended that she couldn't see it.
Zhang Lin hated Li Hehua deeply, so how could she accept her kindness now Even if the pastries were really tempting, she would not give her any face, "Hmph, when did you become so kind I don't dare eating your food.
I'm afraid you'll poison me with your stuff!"
Li Hehua was silent and didn't want to pay attention.
She said lightly: "You guys can eat, I'm going back to my room." After speaking, she turned and entered the woodshed.
She already show courtesy anyway.
If they don't want to eat, she doesn't need to care.
