Having the grocer near by can be such a handy thing to have. Such a damn convenient thing to have. A short drive and pick up your stuff fresh, having them cooked instantly is indeed something remarkable. This time I pick up the Black Chicken, petite as it is compared to a whole chicken. Here it was tucked nicely in the cold shelf. It is difficult to resist of not taking it back for a soup feast. Having some dry Chinese roots stashed nicely in the fridge is a must as it can so handy at all times. A bit of each can create a tasteful bowl of delicious warm soup and I just did that.
