What better way to honor 'National Girl Scout Day' that by eating some of my favorite Girl Scout cookies!

If someone you know is a Girl Scout, make sure you celebrate them today! I look forward to Girl Scout cookie season every year. 'Samoas,' 'Savannah Smiles,' and 'Trefoils.' are my favorites.

I was pleasantly surprised recently when an actual Girl Scout (along with her mother) rang my doorbell. She was going door-to-door selling cookies. I haven't seen that in a very long time. Even though I already had my yearly allotment of G.S.cookies, I just had to buy more from her from going the extra mile.
