Yikes. I didn’t bake a new cookie today. Hopefully I’ll catch up tomorrow.
The big news is that Girl Scout Cookie sales begin soon. Tomorrow morning, I’m going to pick up all the cookies for our troop. Sales don’t officially begin until Jan. 19th, but the girls are excited. They are all first year Brownies and Rachel and I have been trying to explain why we sell cookies and what it all means. In our case, money earned goes toward a trip to Sea World. Everything was kind of murky for the girls, until our last meeting where we made them do some improvisation. One girl would play customer and the other would be the Brownie trying to sell cookies. It was amazing how fast the girls picked up on things through improv. I could have told them 100 times “Cookies are $3.50 a box” and they never would have remembered, but when they had to use ‘$3.50 a box” in their little improvised scenes, they remembered the price immediately.
So anyway, be on the look-out for Brownies and Girl Scouts. Also, if you have any great recipe using Girl Scout cookies, let me know.
