Yesterday we had take out Chinese food. This is a cuisine that our family loves not only for the convenience, but also for the delicious flavors. My kid’s favorite part of the meal though is dessert because they love the crisp and sweet fortune cookie. My husband and I enjoy the paper fortunes that are found inside the cookie.
Contrary to popular belief fortune cookies origins are not from China but it is an American invention. Americans in general are an optimistic bunch and they are known to have the trait of “American Optimism”. This is the belief that anything is possible. When you open a fortune cookie you typically get a positive and hopeful piece of nugget. It is American Optimism in the form of a cookie!
The fortune cookies we opened today had the following messages:
God Bless American inventions, American people and the fortune cookie!
