The Letter F




That's right, it's A to Z Monday, and this is a Flamingo...native to anywhere but Texas lawns all over Florida. Lovely pink birds, that chirp and sing...chasing away all your worries.

But let's get back to reality, or a place called Texas, shall we?
I'd like to introduce you to Grandma J's fortune cookies..




that's right, for Letter F Monday, I want to bake you some homemade Fortune Cookies!


Here are all the ingredients....and some of the mixture still in the bowl...because some of it's already in the oven.


We have some fortunes that will go in the cookies. All official Chinese fortunes.


When you take the finished cookies out of the oven you have to put the fortune in the center fast...


....then fold the cookie over even faster...like this. Don't they look like crap uh, hmmmm...professional-ish?


Now I will deliver them to my lovely grandchildren who have today off school because it's Presidents' Day.

I'll be back later with pictures and their testimonials. I'm so excited!!

They do look tasty, but what is it we're supposed to look under the bed for if we get that particular fortune? (The one next to the lottery one.)

They look fun!

We went to Sea World this weekend and saw lots of Pink Flamingos (and sea creatures and Sesame Street characters)...I wonder if you feed JJ shrimp, if he will turn pink.

When will Wal-Mart start carrying your new line of cookies?

Congrats on your 10+ lb. weight loss!!! See, you were subliminally dieting while on vacation:) You've been programmed by the friends who live in your computer...

You are so creative and fun! But I am going to have to give you a beat down. A beat down? WHAT?!?!?! You wonder why? Well, because DEAR SWEET FRIEND WHO I LOOK UP TO LIKE MY OWN GRANDMOTHER, I was over at Big Hair Envy's leaving a comment about bathing suits and what do I see. I see you saying you are a beached whale. Come on, don't do that. You are beautiful and fun and sensational. It makes me sad to read that. It could possibly be because I am a beached whale myself, but never mind that. I want you to know what a treasure you are. A beautiful treasure : ) A beautiful treasure who makes AMAZING fortune cookies. XO
