We are still in the quiet, easing-in-to-the-new-year phase. It's so nice! I want it to last forever. I'm looking around, baking more, poking in books, sketching, making up stories.
In this quiet time, I realized that I'm accumulating a running list in my head of small things I want to make small posts about. One is this Japanese candy/cookie that my friend sent me recently, called "Yan Yan" (it's sold on Amazon, which is where that link goes).
The real charm, though, is in the fantastically random and adorable sayings printed on each cookie.
I think that "Squirrel________Your Best Friend" & "Fox_________ Beware Of Lies" are my favorites. But the randomness of "Panda________Go For More" is pretty good, too.
And the moral of the story is: (unsurprisingly) I couldn't bear to eat them!
Luckily, there were some broken cookies that came to the rescue, so I at least I know what they taste like.
