“Hannah […] had cut up a red and a yellow pepper and had tossed them in a bowl with some broccoli florets. The vegetables were sweating slightly. […] Hannah had sprinkled the vegetables with salt and sugar to make them bleed a little. […] Hannah had also peeled a gingerroot, and mashed it; she’d set out the wok and the peanut oil, too. Ruth looked in the refrigerator and saw the shrimp marinating in a bowl. […] The only thing that wasn’t ready to cook was the rice.” *
