I haven't been able to make anything either-we have been
getting hammered left and right with thunderstorms and flooding
and tornado warnings and it has been so HUMID I already have
the a/c set down at 71. if I turn the oven on it will be like a
steam room in here! seriously, the humidity is at 68 percent
right now. it's nasty. and where on earth do you live that they
don't stock dark bakers chocolate? this place is 10 years behind
the times and they actually have it in the stores here!
however, it is hard to find anything else at times. I really miss
my home!! you can find ANYTHING you want in California!
ah, well...
if our swamp-like temperatures break by the weekend I will try
out those recipes, one at least, and if it goes well I will send
out the promised picture! have a great one!
i also have been told i have a quick wit which at times can be as sharp as a rapier.
it's not that they don't sell it it's just sold out. i haven't been able to find snow peas either i think thats due to a lot of asian communities around here and more people turned onto cooking asian influenced healthy foods.

think about it...
ever see a girl walking away shakin' it and hear some dumb guy
say, 'wish I had a swing like that in my backyard'?
basically I have been looking for metaphors for a**.
I'm gonna get into trouble, aren't I?

You all must have had a good batch of cookies, because when hubby bought some, it tasted stale to me.

Thank you sooo much for the link(s). I am brand spankin' new here and this was exciting enough to warrant my very first post. Thin Mints and Tagalongs tie for my absolute favorite GS cookies. Although truthfully, maybe the Tagalongs lead a little bit because, even though they're not the same (so please don't scold me for saying this lol), one could satisfy their Thin Mint craving throughout the year with Keebler Grasshoppers. I can't wait to make a batch of both of these!

On a side note: Does anyone know if they still make Animal Shortbreads? They were (and hopefully still are) big squares of thin crispy shortbread that are coated with chocolate on the back.
