Re: Girl Scout cookies

I have to watch my sugar intake too. Kids out selling items for fund raisers only get about 50% of the price for their organization, as the rest goes to the supplier of the item (cookies in this case). Just write a check for $20-30 to the organization; they get 100% of the money and you get a tax write-off.

Re: Girl Scout cookies

I'm glad to see people support them, we purchase their cookies also, when the scouts come by the house. I have two daughters, so it's automatic support from me even though I don't care for them at all, but my wife and daughters eventually eat them. I prefer freshly made chocolate chip cookies with 1/2 cup white, 1 cup dark brown sugar and some additional molasses. That's how you get them to stay near oven soft, yet perfectly cooked. Nothing worse than uncooked cookie dough although 1/2 of everyone out there will disagree. So that would make a 2 great poles, favorite cookie and cookie dough raw or not! Better than a cookie is pie or an éclair, which beats any donut ever made.

The reason why we retain memories is because we are not caught in a time loop. The reason why we are not caught in a time loop is because it is not possible to go backwards in time only forward!

Re: Girl Scout cookies

If you can't or don't want to eat the cookies but still want to support them they have a program where you can buy the cookies and they send them to the troops overseas.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

If you have cookies like that which tend to get hard in the cookie jar you can add a slice of bread to the jar and they will stay soft too. I remember Mom doing that from when I was a little kid up until she passed on and a lot of the other family members do it too.

Good tip on both service men and cookie. I guess I remember the bread tip from some long ago memory, but definitely not from my childhood kitchen, my mom was a single parent with 2 boys a master's degree in fine art working as an art teacher for the Milwaukee Public School system during the week and my Uncles night club on weekends, so baking technic was not a priority. No problem

Mom always baked and cooked a lot and Holidays were a big time for a huge variety of cookies along with other desserts and candies. Of course back then we had family dinners and relatives that always came by too. From the time I was 8 mom was a single mother too. I learned to cook and bake helping her as soon as I was old enough to stir the bowl or decorate a cookie. Then my brother and sister did a little too. Later on I taught my nephews stuff and Grandma was there to teach them and let them help too. My step mom also did a lot of baking and cooking too.

It's funny about the bread as the cookies are hard as a rock so you stick a soft slice off bread in the jar and pretty soon the cookies are nice and soft and the bread is hard as a rock.

Re: Girl Scout cookies

Buy the cookies guys. What I really like is that they come package in single serving packages. Thin Mints are two servings per box. Support the kids. Besides, that's why we take Metformin.
