I don't know if you have a tradition for what goes on on New Year's Eve, but here....usually all bets are off as DH has to run reports for Year End at his work. Month End and Year End always seem to loom ominously.....and the hours take their toll.
So...he worked today....told me he would be late...and I decided, it was a good day to break with tradition and go grab some Mooshoo Pork to go at the hole-in-the-wall chinese take out place near me. MAN...it's been a while since I've had it, and it's messy and wonderful and I was reminded all over again how much I love Mooshoo Pork!! If you have never had it, try it this year. It's almost like eating a chinese burrito....the stir fry yummy-ness is wrapped in a rice wrapper much like a tortilla and a hoisin sauce is spread over the top before wrapping...truly a taste treat!
At the end of my feast, I grabbed MY fortune cookie, eager to see what the words of wisdom would hold for me on this last night of 2009.
"You will have gold pieces by the bushel."
Quickly my smile spread ear to ear.....Gold pieces by the bushel?!?? What else could they be talking about other than my SCRAPS!?? Whoowhooo....that's the right kind of fortune for me...bring on those gold scraps, and throw in some cheddar ones and some orange ones and some yellow ones....I'm ready! :cD
