The day before he was coming home I decided I wanted to do something to surprise him. Something that would let him know just how much I had missed him. I got the idea to give him personalized fortune cookies. I knew a place in Salt Lake where you could order them. You give them the fortunes and they put them in the cookies. Unfortunately I didn't have time for that. It took at least a week for the order.
That's when I decided...I should make them myself. Sure I've never made fortune cookies before, but I had seen a demo on the Food Network and it didn't look like rocket science. So, I went to work. I searched online for a recipe and got to baking.
Well it wasn't exactly rocket science, but it was pretty darn close. After two failed batches, I finally got the technique down and managed to salvage 14 half way decent fortune cookies out of the third batch, each one of them stuffed with a different reason I'd missed my man. I wrapped them up all cute, and couldn't wait to surprised him with my ingenious creation. Long story short, he was surprised, probably not to the degree my effort truly warranted, but excited and surprised non the less.
