The Mouse found a small package of chicken feet at the grocery store. Bought it.

Chicken Feet

The Mouse gave them a “pedicure” and a par-boil/rinse then into the pot.

Tree Fungus

Another par-boil/rinse. The fungi were dirty, The Mouse had to par-boil/rinse twice.

Dried Fava Beans

Everything into the pot along with a good amount of fresh ginger and Chinese dates.

Soup was not photogenic (chicken broth). No pic.

Stay safe and well.

Dinner with the relatives this weekend. Not really potluck, but, local style, bring food (no empty hands). 🙂

A preview.

Stay tuned. We’ll all find out soon enough.

Enjoy. Eat well.
