Okay, so that's a little much, but it felt that way.
Well, actually, that's a lie too since I don't know what dysentery feels like, but I can imagine it's not good.
While we're on the subject, did you know that approximately 600,000 people still die from dysentery every year?! Crazy right?
Okay, sorry, anywho...
Long story short, the evil Schooloan Kid and his Thrill-Kill Bandits took my happy and I want it back.
My treacherous journey today leads me to, well, a Chinese restaurant. Maybe it was the fact that my husband and I just watched Shanghai Noon or maybe it was just my hankerin' for some Pa Pa Chicken... WAIT, I'm sorry. I just said "hankerin"... I'm Midwestern, not Podunk, I apologize. Let's try this again.
Maybe it was the fact that my husband and I just watched Shanghai Noon or maybe it was just my stomach craving (MUCH better) some Pa Pa Chicken, but whatever it was, there, in China Super Buffet (with help from Karen Tack and Alan Richardson's "What's New Cupcake"), I found my inspiration. I would make fortune cookie cupcakes. Not with real fortune cookies, mind you, because that would just be dumb.
The fortune cookie would really be a caramel molded to look like a fortune cookie. Sneaky... very sneaky.
Ancient Chinese Secret: fortune cookie make you happy, and fat if eat too much.
