House Dad’s Literary Life Chapter 969: Ding Xiang’s cake (2/4)

“咦,丁湘姐姐!你怎么在我们的家里?”周日一早,洗漱完毕,精神抖擞的曦曦,蹦蹦跳跳地跟着爸爸从楼上下来,发现厨房里已经有别人了,不是妈妈,而是丁湘姐姐,她有些惊讶地问道。

“Hey, Sister Ding Xiang! Why are you in our house?” Early on Sunday morning, Xixi, who was full of energy after washing up, followed her father downstairs and found that there was already someone else in the kitchen. Not her mother, but Sister Ding Xiang, she asked in surprise.

“因为丁湘姐姐她昨晚很晚才回来,又要赶着做蛋糕,没有地方买材料,所以就借了我们家的厨房先用着啊!”回答的是墨菲,墨菲正端着一碗蔬菜瘦肉粥,跟在咯咯笑地跑来跑去、精力旺盛的小曈曈的身后。

“Because Sister Ding Xiang came back very late last night and was in a hurry to make cakes, she had nowhere to buy materials, so she borrowed our kitchen to use first!” The answer was Murphy, Murphy Holding a bowl of vegetable lean meat porridge, he followed behind the energetic Xiao Jiao who was running around giggling.

墨菲说得没错,丁湘昨晚半夜才回到江城的机场,郭子意不太放心女朋友,就联系了杨轶,杨轶倒也没啥架子,开车去接朋友。

Murphy is right. Ding Xiang only returned to Jiangcheng airport in the middle of the night last night. Guo Ziyi was not very worried about his girlfriend, so he contacted Yang Yi.

但路上,丁湘说她想早上做一些蛋糕,再带过去郭子意的家,可是,有个问题:当时半夜三更,丁湘没地方买食材,而第二天又得很早起来准备,早点做好早点去郭子意的家,不能让郭妈妈久等。

But on the way, Ding Xiang said that she wanted to make some cakes in the morning and take them to Guo Ziyi’s house. However, there was a problem: Ding Xiang had no place to buy ingredients in the middle of the night, and got up early the next day to prepare. Do it early, go to Guo Ziyi’s house early, you can’t keep Guo’s mother waiting for a long time.

好在,丁湘有一群不错的朋友,现在她跟杨欢住处没有食材,杨轶家有啊!

Fortunately, Ding Xiang has a group of good friends. Now she and Yang Huan don’t have any food ingredients, but Yang Yi’s family has them!

于是,杨轶把丁湘接回了家里,让她早上用自己的厨房。

So, Yang Yi took Ding Xiang back home and let her use her kitchen in the morning.

这不是什么大事,也不会有啥误会,毕竟杨轶坦坦荡荡的,更何况,家里还有墨菲呢!

This is not a big deal, and there will be no misunderstanding. After all, Yang Yi is frank and candid, not to mention, there is Murphy at home!

“这样呀?”曦曦知道后,便兴致勃勃地凑到了厨房里,好奇地看着丁湘忙碌,她还没有见过丁湘做蛋糕,上回杨轶出差,丁湘在家里给她们客串保姆的时候,也没有做过蛋糕。

“Is that so?” After Xixi found out, she came to the kitchen with great interest, and watched Ding Xiang busy with curiosity. She had never seen Ding Xiang make cakes. The last time Yang Yi was on a business trip, Ding Xiang was at home. When I was a guest babysitter for them, I didn’t make any cakes either.

“曦曦喜欢吃蛋糕吗?你来尝尝这个,你们应该比较喜欢吃,是这种抹茶口味的小蛋糕,或者是这种巧克力口味的小蛋糕。”丁湘见到可爱的曦曦,原本暗自紧张起来的脸蛋又流露出了笑意,连忙端出来一个小盘子,拿已经做好的蛋糕招待曦曦。

“Does Xixi like to eat cake? Come and try this, you should like to eat it. It’s this matcha-flavored little cake, or this chocolate-flavored little cake.” Ding Xiang saw the lovely Xi Xi, the face that was secretly nervous showed a smile again, and hurriedly brought out a small plate and served Xixi with the cake that was already made.

虽然是跟杨轶学的,但丁湘的手艺,经过这几年锻炼,进步可以说是非常大,她现在不仅能做出各式各样的小蛋糕,而且还可以做得精致,比以前的纸杯蛋糕还小,曦曦都可以一口一个的那种,看上去尤为诱人!

Although she learned from Yang Yi, Ding Xiang’s craftsmanship has made great progress after several years of training. Now she can not only make all kinds of small cakes, but also make them exquisitely. The cupcakes in the past were still small, the kind that Xixi could take one bite at a time, looked particularly attractive!

“真的吗?粑粑,我可以吃吗?”曦曦看着这些漂亮的小蛋糕,有点颜控属性的小姑娘心动了,她眨了眨眼睛,转头看向爸爸,期盼地问道。

“Really? Baba, can I eat it?” Xixi looked at these beautiful little cakes, and the little girl with a little beauty control was moved. She blinked and turned to look at her father, looking forward to it. asked.

“可以吃,你丁湘姐姐做的蛋糕还是蛮多的,估计也带不了这么多过去。”杨轶扫了一眼桌子,笑着说道,“不过,你得先喝点白开水。”

“You can eat it. Your sister Ding Xiang has made quite a few cakes. I guess you won’t be able to bring so much.” Yang Yi glanced at the table and said with a smile, “However, you have to drink some plain water first.”

丁湘确实做了很多蛋糕,满满的摆了一桌,而且还不只是松软的小蛋糕,她还做了一方蓝莓冻芝士蛋糕,以及不同口味的一些布丁慕斯杯。

Ding Xiang did make a lot of cakes and set the table full, and not only the fluffy little cakes, she also made a blueberry frozen cheesecake and some pudding mousse cups in different flavors.

杨轶现在看到了才知道丁湘整了这么多功夫,难怪杨轶早上四点多起来练拳的时候,便看到丁湘在厨房里忙碌了。

Now that Yang Yi saw it, he realized that Ding Xiang had worked so hard. No wonder Yang Yi saw Ding Xiang busy in the kitchen when he got up at four in the morning to practice boxing.

一会儿,曦曦尝了丁湘做的蛋糕之后,在丁湘期待的眼神中,眼睛发光地用力点头,鼓囔着说道:“好吃,好好吃呢!”

After a while, after Xixi tasted the cake made by Ding Xiang, in Ding Xiang’s expectant eyes, her eyes glowed and nodded vigorously, and said loudly, “It’s delicious, it’s delicious!”

丁湘暗暗松了一口气,既然曦曦觉得好吃,那她就放心了,就怕做出次品,到时候带过去,就尴尬了!

Ding Xiang secretly breathed a sigh of relief. Since Xixi thought it was delicious, she was relieved, for fear that she would make a defective product and bring it with her, which would be embarrassing!

不过,在她思索着到郭子意家应该如何说话的时候,曦曦吃掉了手上的那一小块布丁慕斯,甜甜地问道:“丁湘姐姐,我可以要一点点留下来吗?”

However, when she was thinking about how to talk to Guo Ziyi’s family, Xixi ate the small piece of pudding mousse in her hand and asked sweetly, “Sister Ding Xiang, I can ask for a little bit more. stay?”

丁湘回过了神,笑着跟曦曦说道:“当然,你还喜欢吃吗?那你挑一些,不过要放在冰箱里。”

Ding Xiang returned to his senses, smiled and said to Xixi: “Of course, do you still like to eat? Then you pick some, but keep them in the refrigerator.”

“不是,不是我要吃啦!”曦曦指了指外面,声音清亮地澄清道,“是馨儿她要吃,她可喜欢吃蛋糕了!”

“No, it’s not that I want to eat it!” Xixi pointed to the outside and clarified in a clear voice, “It’s Xiner who wants to eat, she likes cakes!”

“曦曦,爸爸问你一个问题,馨儿她现在攒了几个金币了?”

“Xixi, Dad asked you a question, how many gold coins has Xiner saved now?”

……

按照约定,丁湘十点钟左右,来到了郭子意家住的地方——位于邬湖区的市政府家属大院。郭慧珍已经交代了警卫,她报了来意后,有人领她进来。

According to the agreement, Ding Xiang arrived at the residence of Guo Ziyi’s family – the family compound of the municipal government in Wuhu District at about ten o’clock. Guo Huizhen had already explained to the guards, and after she reported her intention to come, someone led her in.

毕竟是省会城市的市长住的地方,丁湘很快看到一栋独门独院的二层小洋楼,院子不大,但种着花草,即便是冬天,也觉得生机勃勃。当然,跟杨轶家比起来,这种上个世纪九十年代修建的老式楼房根本不算豪华!

After all, this is where the mayor of the provincial capital city lives. Ding Xiang soon saw a small two-story western-style building with a single door and a single courtyard. Of course, compared with Yang Yi’s house, this old-fashioned building built in the 1990s is not luxurious at all!

但这毕竟是郭子意的家,丁湘一下子紧张了起来,紧张得都不敢呼吸。

But this is Guo Ziyi’s house after all, so Ding Xiang was so nervous that he couldn’t even breathe.

“丁湘来了?欢迎欢迎,哎,真的是不好意思,子意的事情,我还得麻烦你跑一趟!”院门打开了,谭慧珍笑容满面地迎接了出来,很是客气地说着客套的话。

“Ding Xiang is here? Welcome, hey, I’m really sorry, I have to trouble you to go to Ziyi’s business!” The courtyard door opened, and Tan Huizhen greeted her with a smile on her face. Speaking politely.

到现在,谭慧珍依然只是把丁湘当成郭子意的同事,毕竟是自己麻烦别人,她客气一点,也是很正常的表现。

Up to now, Tan Huizhen still only regards Ding Xiang as Guo Ziyi’s colleague.

但她的这热情,让丁湘有些懵圈,都不知道如何回应。

But her enthusiasm made Ding Xiang a little confused and didn’t know how to respond.

这时候,谭慧珍看到丁湘手里拎着的装蛋糕的盒子,眉头微微一皱,语气变得有些责怪地说道:“丁湘啊,你说你,来就来了,还带什么东西?我跟你说,一会儿,你还得全都拎回去。”

At this time, Tan Huizhen saw the cake box that Ding Xiang was carrying, frowned slightly, and said in a somewhat reproachful tone: “Ding Xiang, if you say you, come here, and bring it with you. What? Let me tell you, in a while, you have to take it all back.”

丁湘愣住了。

Ding Xiang was stunned.

“这可不是针对你,我们家老郭定了个规矩,不收别人的礼物,所以,那些当官的,谁来我们家,都得空手来。”谭慧珍意识到自己可能有点过于严肃了,微微一笑,解释道,“不过你不是当官的,否则,带这么多东西过来,我还得把你往外轰。”

“This is not aimed at you. Our old Guo has set a rule that he will not accept gifts from others. Therefore, those who are officials, whoever comes to our house, must come empty-handed.” Tan Huizhen realized that she might be a little too serious. Now, with a slight smile, he explained, “But you’re not an official, otherwise, if you bring so many things, I’ll have to blast you out.”

丁湘一脸窘迫~IndoMTL.com~手足无措地拎着蛋糕站在原地,不知道如何是好,只能支支吾吾地说道:“阿姨,不好意思,我真的不知道这些规矩,我想着第一次来,就给你们带了一些自己做的蛋糕……”

Ding Xiang looked embarrassed~IndoMTL.com~ holding the cake and standing in place, not knowing what to do, he could only say hesitantly: “Auntie, I’m sorry, I really don’t know these rules, I thought it was the first time I came, so I brought you some cakes that I made…”

谭慧珍看着丁湘慌张的模样,也联想到之前在郭子意桌子上看到的那本学生杂志中关于丁湘背景故事的报道,心里不由得生出一丝怜惜。

Tan Huizhen looked at Ding Xiang’s panicked appearance, and also thought of the report on Ding Xiang’s background story in the student magazine she saw on Guo Ziyi’s desk before, and she couldn’t help feeling a little pity in her heart.

这是一个实诚的姑娘。

This is an honest girl.

“哎,丁湘,你说阿姨是不是老糊涂了?”谭慧珍笑了起来,说道,“把你当成其他上门找你郭叔叔办事的人等同对待,都忘记你是阿姨请到家里来的,快进来,进来再说。”

“Hey, Ding Xiang, are you saying that Auntie is old and confused?” Tan Huizhen laughed and said, “Treating you as other people who come to your door to ask your Uncle Guo to do things, forget that you are an Auntie and invited to the house. Come, come in, come in and talk.”

她恢复了最初的热情,还伸手要帮丁湘拎蛋糕,笑着说道:“你还给我们做了蛋糕?这多不好意思?今天麻烦你帮阿姨拿一些衣服、补品去给子意,阿姨都想请你中午在家里吃饭的,没想到还麻烦你做蛋糕。”

She regained her original enthusiasm and reached out to help Ding Xiang carry the cake. She smiled and said, “You even made a cake for us? How embarrassed? Please help auntie get some clothes and supplements for her son today. I mean, Auntie wants to invite you to eat at home at noon, but I didn’t expect to bother you to make cakes.”

“阿姨,我来就行。您可别这么说,不麻烦的,而且,这也是我的工作啊!”丁湘连忙拦着谭慧珍,拎着蛋糕跟着她走进去,“阿姨,您叫我小丁就可以了,大家都是这么叫的。”

“Auntie, I’ll do it. Don’t say that, it’s not troublesome, and this is also my job!” Ding Xiang hurriedly stopped Tan Huizhen and followed her in with the cake, “Auntie, what is your name? I’m fine, that’s what everyone calls it.”
