Apparently today, February 8th, is National Girl Scout Cookie Day. I guess that’s a thing.
I was a terrible girl scout. I was one of those kids who never liked to go outside and get dirty and just wanted to read my Babysitter’s Club books. I liked the patches you could earn in a quiet room.
I remember one time, we drove a long way to this obstacle course. This is in my horribly unreliable memory of childhood, so we probably drove down the street to a playground. Anyways, we had to climb a rope thing and I remember just looking up at it and sighing, wondering when we get to the cookie part of the whole deal.
I know that may come as a shock that I was such a nerdy kid since I’m so badass as an adult. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Sorry. I entertain myself with my sarcastic quips. OK, back to cookies. We all love cookies. Am I right? That was a rhetorical question. Of course I’m right.
So, I missed my chance to order boxes of Girl Scout cookies this year. I flat out turned them down. I was on my healthy kick. I still sort of am. But, you need a healthy balance of cookies and salads. You just do.
These “cookies” are so very simple to make. And you can make as little or as many as you want. They are probably healthier and cheaper that Girl Scout cookies. Maybe. I did no research to support that claim.
The secret ingredient is Ritz crackers.
