Personal Notes:
When I was 16 our family attended a small Lutheran church near our home. One Sunday the pastor announced that the church had been asked to help 5 families in China move to the US. The families were seeking political asylum. They spoke very little English, the men had been in politics, so they would need new jobs. The women had essentially been stay at home mom's, and 3 wanted to enter the workforce. Just about every family in the Church had some skills they would teach. My mom was a branch manager for a bank, so , for three Saturday afternoons she taught the adults US banking laws skill. One of the women, Mrs. Ou Yang, wanted to work in a bank. She continue to come to the house on Saturday afternoons until her work permit arrived and my mom taught her how to be a teller. The church had explained that all of these sessions were free, but after her first individual visit Mrs. Ou Yang tried to pay my mom and was a little upset that mom would not take her money. She was a very proud woman. The next Saturday she brought this dish instead of money. Everyone loved it and she made it every Saturday of her training and special occasions after that. When m mom passed away in 2015, Mrs. Ou Yang traveled from New York to Arizona to attend the funeral. That afternoon she came over to the house and made this dish for us..
