I have been busy lately. Really, really busy. The kind of busy that makes your head feel like it might pop. And it seems, as usual, that the first thing to get put on the back burner is the blog. But then, at the end of an insanely busy day, you can get an email that makes you want to try harder, do more, no matter how tired you are.
Said email, sent by a relatively new friend, was one of those emails that came at a moment when I needed a little buoying. She simply took the time to let me know that she enjoyed reading my blog, and for that, I’m beyond grateful. Because, as much as it thrills me to know that perfect strangers are out there reading this (and hopefully enjoying it), there’s just something about knowing that you have support from those you personally hold in high regard.
I’m sure we can all relate to this feeling, whether it be a student thanking you at the end of the school year, a compliment on a job well done at work, or the happy sighs of those eating a meal you prepared. No matter the reason, things like this keep us going, keep us from quitting, and keep us reaching higher.
So with that, and because of that, even though I really just want to curl up on the couch and fall asleep watching Hawaii Five-O (the old one…hello Jack Lord!), I bring you this heavenly dessert made with the best Girl Scout cookie of them all: Thin Mints. And don’t give me any of that nonsense that Samoas are the best. Good? Yes. The best? Not even a little.
Check out my recipe here: Thin Mint Cookie Tart
I don’t really know how much I need to say about a dessert like this. It’s got almost an entire box of Thin Mints in it, PLUS extra chocolate. Done deal, right?
And as always, thank you for reading. Whether you’re a stranger, a friend, or a family member…I truly appreciate it.
