another post about food

We got the call this weekend.

The Girl Scout Cookie call. Can we take a moment for the wonder of these cookies.

{pause}

Okay, so I don't have much of a sweet tooth. That's why I can stand to have a candy jar filled to the brim in my kitchen {fill it with chips and we may have a problem}, but I LOVE Girl Scout Cookies.

This year is our littlest cousins {H} first year in the scouts. This weekend she called me up for her "official" sales call.

Me: Hey Miss H what's going on?

H: Hey, I'm selling cookies do you want to buy some?

Me: Of course, what kinds do you have? (I refrained from telling her she doesn't need to really answer this because I've had the cookie menu memorized before she was even born)

H: Well we have some caramel kinds and some other stuff.

Me: Okay well let me see (I'm calculating in my head how many boxes to freeze this year. I need a box now, a few boxes for boy and then of course you can't forget about the emergency supply for you know the hormonal purposes where these particular cookies and lifetime movie make the world right again. So you have to factor in those and times that by 2 to come up with a total). Okay I've got my order...

{give it to H}

H: Is that all?

Me: What do you mean is that ALL? I just bought 100,000 calories worth of cookies.

This kid knows I'm weak.

We got the in person call! :) Only got 3 boxes though. I think our girl would have much rather had you buy from her instead of us :)

Oh and I finally made your Beef Empanadas ... with a few things left out. So yuumy. I put the recipe on my blog tonight! Thanks for the recommendation ... it was a HUGE hit here!
