- Tomorrow, September 29th is Confucius Day. Finding this out made me think of all of those Chinese Proverbs that are always so wise and may or may not have been something said by Confucius.
- That made me think of fortunes in fortune cookies that sometimes have proverbs written on them.
- I have a fortune cookie kit that my son gave to me a few years ago that I have never used. But, when I saw the contestants on the Great British Bake off make fortune cookies, I decided that I should give it a try.
- Even though fortune cookies aren't really Chinese, they are a very fun part of a Chinese meal. It is thought that David Jung, a restaurant owner in LA, invented them back in 1920. Until the 1960s, fortune cookies were handmade until a machine was invented to automate the process.
- And, even though fortune cookies aren't really Asian, Alicia just put up our newest podcast about the book to film title, Crazy Rich Asians on From Cover to Reel! They could be a good snack while reading or watching this movie!
Of course, if you don't want to make your own cookies, but want the personalized fortunes, you can purchase them and pull out the fortunes carefully and add your own.
Happy Confucius Day! And be sure to check out the podcast! It is extra good because my son-in-law is partnering with Alicia this week and they do a great job together!
