TODAY IS NATIONAL CHINESE ALMOND COOKIE DAY!
We remember these from our youth. Every Chinese restaurant would have them. But when we think about things that Chinese restaurants served back in the ’90s, it most likely wasn’t Chinese in origin. Well, maybe in origin, but certainly not in that execution. It wasn’t until much later that actual ethnic food was embraced.
But still! Almond Cookies can only be found (so it seems) at Asian markets or select Chinese restaurants. Thankfully, we found some at Asian Direct in Richfield.
They sure are tasty! So tasty that a fledgling Kung Fu practitioner might use them as motivation to become the Dragon Warrior!
Tomorrow is Cinnamon Crescent Day.
