It's odd. I first thought that the fortune cookie maker took time out to cook up custom-tailored the fortunes for me. However, this was impossible because the cookies came to my home too soon after my request. So, maybe it was fate. Or not. But the fortunes uplifted my mind and spirit--a lot. Keep in mind, I have a new book THE HEALING POWERS OF CHOCOLATE due to be released in a few weeks. Take a look at the fortunes I saved from last night; a group of lucky numbers are teamed with each fortune:
"Your genuine talent will find its way to success."
"You will be fortunate in the opportunities presented to you."
Not only are the fortunes fun to read but the cookies are a joy to look at and the creamy chocolate make these cute creations taste sweeter and special. Naturally, turning to these cookies are a shortcut to happiness and much easier to obtain (and uniform in size for perfectionists) than DIY fortune cookies (check out this link for a recipe and websites to help you create fortunes). Homemade fortune cookies made with olive oil and your choice of chocolate will be fun to do one day--but not in near future for me. Meanwhile, I'm savoring these upbeat Pollyanna-type cookies (yeah, the fortunes have got me hooked) throughout the hectic holiday season. The flavor and fortune pair helps make me feel warm, and fuzzy inside and out. And that's not all...
