... with Jane, a Chinese dentist who has struck up a close friendship with our family the last 5 years, at her clinic, and then at her apartment for dinner another night. After either eating at restaurants or in the cafeteria for the past 5 weeks, I had really missed home cooking. It was so nice to eat fresh, hot, and lovingly prepared food.
