Finally, she added the easily cooked snowcapped grass. Su Xiaoling took the seasoning.
The porridge was light green, as if because of snowcapped grass.
Su Xiaoling brought the casserole down and said, “Xiaolu, the medicinal cuisine is ready.”
Su Xiaolu was a little depressed. “I don’t smell anything burnt.”
She often burnt the dish.
She went over and looked. Huh.
Why was this color different from what she made?
Su Xiaoling thought something was wrong and was nervous. “What’s wrong?”
Su Xiaolu said curiously, “What you made is a little different from what I made. Let me try it.”
The colors were different, and the aroma of porridge lingered.
She wanted to taste it to see if the drug was still there.
Su Xiaoling took a small spoon and tasted it.
She was even more surprised. “Oh… it’s delicious. How strange. The medicinal properties are better than mine. Sister, how did you make it?”
Wasn’t this medicinal cuisine described in the book?
The porridge was soft and had a faint fragrance. The medicinal fragrance was rich and slightly bitter.
Su Xiaoling said helplessly, “I usually do this.”
Su Xiaolu looked at Su Xiaoling seriously and said, “Sister, wait a moment. I’ll get something for you.”
Su Xiaolu went to get the medicinal cuisine book. She handed it to Su Xiaoling and said, “Sister, don’t you want to study the recipe? Why don’t you study this? There are a total of 400 medicinal cuisine recipes here. I can’t learn them, but I think you can.”
Su Xiaoling hurriedly waved her hand. “No, no. This belongs to your sect. How can it be leaked?”
What if Uncle-Master came back and found out and got angry with her?
Su Xiaolu said seriously, “Sister, I’m the head of Minggu now. Master said that I’ll be in charge of the inheritance. I can even take in disciples from now on. When Master taught me this medicinal cuisine, the color he made was black, and most of mine was yellow. Only you made the taste described in the recipe.”
“So now, as the Sect Master of Minggu, I’ll accept you as my Senior Sister. Forget about the customs. I’ll pass this recipe to you. Alright, you’re my Senior Sister now. You can learn it openly.”
Su Xiaolu gave the recipe to Su Xiaoling.
Su Xiaoling was stunned. After a while, she said helplessly, “Xiaolu, it’s not like this… Uncle-Master will be angry.”
She looked at Su Xiaolu helplessly. Seeing that Su Xiaolu’s smile had disappeared, Su Xiaoling paused. What Xiaolu said just now was said with a serious expression…
Su Xiaoling didn’t know what to do.
Su Xiaolu looked at Su Xiaoling seriously and said, “Senior Sister, our Minggu doesn’t have any big rules. We all flatter and do whatever we want. In the future, when my master is old, you can’t refuse to make medicinal cuisine. Otherwise, the old man will really deprive you of your right to inherit. Of course, at that time, I won’t help you plead for leniency, but if you’re kicked out, you’ll still be my third sister.”
Old Man Wu passed all of it on to her. She could do anything.
Of course, if she displeased the old man, as long as he was alive, he retained the right to seize her identity. That right was valid for all heirs.
In other words, if she lived long enough, she could even decide if she wanted to take in disciples. If she didn’t want to, then she wouldn’t take them in.
Seeing that Su Xiaolu was serious, Su Xiaoling’s expression became serious. She held the medicinal cuisine book in her hands and said seriously, “Okay, I’m willing to become a part of Minggu and follow its teachings. I won’t violate it.”
After saying that, Su Xiaoling took a deep breath and looked at Su Xiaolu. “Xiaolu, if Uncle-Master comes back and doesn’t want me to learn, then I won’t learn anymore. I won’t use what I learn for the rest of my life.”
After learning how to cook from Madam Qian for a period of time, she realized that she liked to cook. She enjoyed watching the food slowly turn into delicacies in her hands. She also enjoyed watching the dishes being finished.
Therefore, this recipe was a priceless treasure to her. She really wanted to learn it.
Perhaps now that Su Xiaolu had taken her in, Old Wu would return soon. If he was dissatisfied, he would kick her out again.
But now that this opportunity was in front of her, she could not refuse.
It was the same as when Big Brother and Second Brother wanted to enter the school.
Su Xiaolu nodded with a smile. “Okay, I promise you.”
Su Xiaoling treasured the recipe very much. She smiled at Su Xiaolu and said, “Xiaolu, I’ll go back first.”
Su Xiaolu nodded.
After sending Su Xiaoling off, Su Xiaolu brought the medicinal cuisine to Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian.
As soon as they entered the courtyard, Su Xiaolu shouted happily, “Sister Baoqian, Brother Baoshan, I’m here to bring you medicinal cuisine. Today’s medicinal cuisine is very delicious. You’ll definitely like it.”
Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian, who were in the room, immediately felt hopeless.
Madam Lian couldn’t help but laugh. “Just grit your teeth and get through it.”
They had to eat this medicinal cuisine twice a month.
Although her heart ached for the two children, it was really good to eat them. No matter how much her heart ached, she could endure it and not hurt. She had to let Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian eat everything.
When Su Xiaolu came in and put the casserole away, the maidservant went down to get a bowl.
He quickly brought two bowls over and opened them for Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian.
Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian smelled the faint fragrance of medicine and rice. When they saw that the color was different, they were shocked. “Xiaolu, did you cook this?”
After eating dry porridge for half a year, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
Su Xiaolu was a little embarrassed. “I didn’t cook it, but it’s better than mine.”
Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian ate. The two of them were originally prepared to be depressed, but they did not expect to be surprised.
Sun Baoqian praised as she ate heartily.
Sun Baoshan also nodded in agreement.
Madam Lian was also curious. She asked the servant girl to pass her a spoon to taste it and was immediately surprised. It was really delicious.
Su Xiaolu blushed and said proudly, “My third sister made this. Her culinary skills are very good. I’ll ask her for help with medicinal cuisine in the future.”
“Then… would it be all right if you thanked her for us?”
Sun Baoqian was very happy, but she was afraid that Su Xiaolu would be sad, so she restrained her joy.
Sun Baoshan’s eyes were also filled with anticipation, but he looked at Su Xiaolu and pursed his lips before saying, “Xiaolu, you did a good job too. Thank you.”
Su Xiaolu felt the comfort of Sun Baoqian and her sister. She smiled generously and said, “Thank you, but I’m as untalented as Master in making medicinal cuisine. However, my third sister is talented. You don’t have to suffer in the future, hehe.”
She didn’t care at all. Only then did Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian show their joy. Madam Lian also smiled in relief. When she told Sun Ziqian about it, they couldn’t stop laughing.
