Much in the same way that Fall is pie season, February is cookie season. Not only is it a MISERABLE time of year in general, with blustery, wet, slushy mess whenever you go outside, the Girl Scouts are out and about spreading their little bits of crack.
Yes, our house is full of Girl Scout cookies.
Additionally, after getting nice and sick while grocery shopping on Valentines (go go antibiotics not playing nice with my tummy), I self-medicated with some free store samples of Ginger Snaps. (Ginger settles the stomach. It really does! And not just me using it as an excuse for nom nom ginger snap cookies.)
They were so good, I brought some home with me.
And because they always come in threes, we got in a conversation about my raspberry-filled shortbread cookies over lunch the next day.
I actually said “Hrm, I should make those again… I’ll make cookies tomorrow!”
Then I stopped and looked around at the contents of my house:
1 tub ginger snaps
approximately 15-bajillion boxes of Girl Scout cookies
And I was wanting to make more?? oy vey.
