Weekend Cooking: Fortune Cookie

Weekend Cooking is hosted by Beth Fish Reads and is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page. For more information, see the welcome post.

So when your kitchen looks like this:

and it's only The Husband and you at home, and your kids don't like Chinese, then spring rolls and crabmeat wontons and vegetable fried rice becomes what's for dinner.

And when your house hasn't sold, and you've just buried a second statue of St. Joseph, and the country's debt crisis threatens to wipe out the savings that you plan to use for a new potential house, and when you're among the 10% of the country collecting unemployment, then this becomes a rather apropos and very wise fortune cookie indeed:

Very cute :)
I know how stressful a boxed up kitchen can be -- and we would have chosen Chinese too!

Love this post. Definitely a lemonade out of lemons sort of post. We found two statues of St. Joseph when we put in the vegetable garden at our new house, so I'm going to predict that your house will sell now with that double dose!

Best of luck to you! Hopefully, the fortune cookie is correct!

I have to say "opportunity" is one of my favorite words.


Hang in there!
