The Sweet Taste of Destiny – Fortune Cookies


A lot of bloggers participate in “What I Ate Wednesday” which usually includes a comentary, photos and sometimes recipes of what a blogger eats through out the day. I know Tiff at Love, Sweat & Beers participates in this most weeks (this week she ate some “ugly food“… Her words, not mine!)

Today, I want to share what ate last night. I ate a light breakfast and lunch because I was invited to dinner with my new collegues. One of our leaders was in from the west coast office and wanted to take us to dinner. We went to Tao, an Asian fusion restaurant, vibrating with club beats and brimming with exotic cocktails. All of this happens under the watchful eye of a 16 foot tall Buddha.

We decided to order family style so everyone could try an assortment of the offereings from Tao. However, the bigest treat was dessert. We ordered the Giant Chocolate Fortune Cookie.

As you can see in the picture, this is a very large dessert. It is about 6 inches in diameter, partially dipped in chocolate and is filled with a combination of chocolate and white chocolate mouse. It is sinful, but delicious! The best part? Everyone at the table actually get their own forutne! My forutne said, “Tonight you will be blinded by passion”. Ooh la la!

The funny thing is, when the check came, we were given a regular sized fortune cookies. When I opened my cookie, guess what my fortune said :

My Second Fortune

Is the universe trying to tell me something?
