For this birth, I imported a non-Western tradition into my American home: my Chinese-Singaporean mother aka confinement nanny. She already has a 30 day post-natal menu planned out for me. My heart is full.
Mom decided to start my post-natal regime today. I am told there is over a hundred dollars worth of wild American ginseng in this bowl of chicken soup.
Another quirk of a multi-cultural household: Kansas BBQ shipped to Texas, the leftovers served Asian-style. You better believe it, that’s pork ribs, shredded and fried with chopped cilantro!
