It is ironic that an all you can eat soup and salad bar restaurant sells such delicious chocolate chip cookies. These cookies rival the ones you can buy in the malls. The funny thing is that there is not a single chocolate chip cookie out in the buffet area. You have to actually purchase these separately in a to go bag. Today we have a half bag of these delicious chocolate chip cookies. The first half didn't make the trip home to be photographed.

Thirds. Yes, this is a third serving of FuRaiBo. I guess this is a not so random, random meal of the day assignment. For today, we went to the Los Angeles location of FuRaiBo.
