I went home to visit my family this weekend! The.Best.Time!!!! I love my dad. Best man I know. He knows what he likes and he makes no quoffs about it. When he likes it, he buys all that he can and just goes with it. He has a habit of going overboard and buying enough of something to supply a small army! He bought a case of these…..
I did a really great job of staying away from them as best as I could. Especially considering my EXTREME weakness to mint + chocolate! We are talking *VERY EXTREME* weakness. They are going into the freezer until the day comes that I can’t control my cravings any longer. Yep, they are in the freezer. Along with a sleeve from last year. See, I do have willpower!
I love my mom. She is the best woman I know. However, she has this terrible habit of sneaking things into my bag or car that I wasn’t planning on taking back home. They usually include treats I don’t need to eat, clothes I was trying to get rid of, or amazing amounts of hairspray that I always desperately need. I don’t complain about the expensive hairspray that she spoils me with. Well, this time——- she snuck in some Girl Scout Thin Mints from my dad’s HUGE supply.
Crud, just what I need. Another reason to practice my willpower. I decided I would make something this afternoon that was…..
HEALTHY + MINT + CHOCOLATE = HEALTHY GRASSHOPPER PIE!
This turned out to be absolute delisousness! (Recipe coming tomorrow’ish! Get excited- it’s worth the wait!!!)
