Whenever those tropical storms hit this tiny island, the elders prepared lots of fruits, vegetables, cookies, and instant noodles for our family in advance. They didn’t make any phone call to ask any takeout and put young men’s life at risk riding motorcycles for food delivery.
That’s how I define “cookies,” one of the best food resources when human beings face natural disasters. No takeout, no dangerous food business or typhoon driving, everyone should be safe at home.
Speaking of cookies, I chose traditional Taiwanese bamboo cookies (冬筍餅) and carrot cookies (菜脯餅) after so many years gone by, wondering why American potato chips hit the world and make people fat for decades, but only very few still enjoy those veggie-cookies nowadays.
Cookies are not cookies, that’s why we call them cookies. Food Dharma Door is very simple and easy, even kids can understand it very well.
“Drink some tea, please.”
“Have some cookies, please.”
Safety is the best policy, have some typhoon cookies!
