Carpe Diem Haiku *Mirror Rice Cakes (Kagamimochi)*

I decided to take a touch personal twist on this prompt. Each year for New Year’ s Eve a friend of mine is baking special cookies – little “pockets”, filled with home-made marmelade and dusted with caster sugar on the top. Next to being delicious they also have a slip of paper within, telling what future holds for the finder. Yes, they sound a lot like the well-known fortune cookies, just look (and taste) completely different. This has become a lovely tradition that adds a lot of laugh to the evening.
