Fortune Cookies

Our daughter made us a batch of homemade fortune cookies one year with her own fortunes. She made a box for them and a book for us to store our fortunes in.
The cookies were delicious. The fortunes funny and sweet. We savored each cookie. She encouraged us to eat them. She kept reminding me, "food is not for keepsakes." Very true, yet these were daughter fortune cookies! We were able to make the cookies last for five years. The last cookies were not as fresh as the first ones but they were still tasty. The fortunes still fresh.
Last year, in January, we did a fortune cookie every day. It was fun.
Maybe we can do that again this year.

I love the idea of a fortune cookie every day. When my daughter Kate was in high school and running for student council we baked a batch of fortune cookies with "vote for Kate" inside. What fun!

Happy Day Deb,
What a great idea! Who doesn't love a fortune cookie!
We do Chinese take out and we look forward to the fortune cookie. Come January I am usually rather tired so the fortune cookie helps me with my daily fun activity.
In 2007, I am adding a poem a day.
If I am not careful I will be so busy with all "for the day" I will not be able to get cooking in.
