A note from the wise Claire K
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life – Confucius.
He was a very wise man Confucius. If we all took heed of everything he said there would be a lot of happy, satisfied people out there. This quote is one of my very favourites and something I aim for.
Confucius has a lot of quotes and quite a few of them can be found in Fortune Cookies.
There is a true and sincere friendship between you and your friends.
You find beauty in ordinary things, do not lose this ability.
Ideas are like children; there are none so wonderful as your own.
It takes more than good memory to have good memories.

Fortune cookies – recipe from Gifts from the Kitchen by Annie Rigg
makes about 15
Use an electric mixer to whisk the egg whites until they are foamy. Add the icing sugar and continue to whisk until the sugar has dissolved into the egg.
Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl and use a wooden spoon to stir them through.
Pour in the melted butter and stir it through too.
Set the bowl aside to rest for 10 minutes.
On the reverse-side of each piece of baking paper, draw 2 10cm circles.
Spread each circle with a very thin layer (less than 1tsp full) of batter.
Bake the rounds for 6-8 minutes or until they turn golden.
Working VERY quickly, flip the circle over, place the paper strip in the middle, fold the biscuit in half and then pinch the two points together backwards.
Set them in a muffin tin to hold their shape while they cool.
Repeat with the rest of the batter.
Fortune cookies will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
