The Girl Scouts have Dear Husband's number!
Our household ordered seventeen, that's right SEVENTEEN, boxes of Girl Scout cookies this year. Of course, it's for a good cause, and they are freezeable. (Thank God!)
Our oldest granddaughter is a Daisy. I don't even know what a Daisy is, but it's part of the GS system. She was introduced to her first sales experience with the cookies this year. Grampa, not to be outdone by other members of the family, bought ten boxes from her.
We have always purchased cookies from the daughter of a member of my quilting bee. (I know....too confusing. Just keeep reading! lol) This year, DH bought seven boxes from her, still a major purchase.
Dear Husband was wise and put most of the cookies in the freezer right away. For me, out of sight, out of mind, is the way my craving operates. Better to have the cookies tucked away, where I am unlikely to be browsing for a snack. I'm happy to say that I've had about a box and a half in just about a month, a record for me!
I was shopping yesterday for our weekly groceries. I had gone shopping without a list, which is a first for me. I'm always prepared with a list that is generated by the meal plan for the week. DH had six things on the list at the refrigerator, and mentioned that he'd really like some ice cream, too. He'd read the list to me the day before, and I could remember all of it.
I knew I needed fresh fruits and vegetables, lunchmeat, quart-sized storage bags, and the ice cream. As I passed the bakery, I was SO tempted to browse, but I am on a kick to use up what we have in the house. I was actually thinking about the two boxes of lemon bar mix in the pantry. It never occured to me to think about the GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!!
I'll be prepared for desserts and snacks for months to come!
