(Granted, they didn't leave a comment on the blog because that would require admitting to an audience that they actually like Girl Scout Cookies.)
But, the truth of the matter is...my kids already came up with a plan to dispose of the cookies. The other day when we first broke into the cookies, Beck declared that he hated them. He couldn't even finish the one cookie he sampled. (Which is foreign to me). Maddie, whose diet consists solely of peanut butter, yogart and pretzels, declared that she would take care of the peanut butter ones. And together they decided that the others would be consumed by Granny when she comes to visit. Because, as Beck put it, "Granny and Pop Pop love everything."
I didn't include this tidbit in my blog this morning out of respect for my parents who truly are the President and Vice President of the Clean Plate Club. But after the e-mails I started receiving concerning what to do with the cookies, I thought it best to add this addendum to the cookie blog.
My parents have taught me a lot of things and I am truly grateful for all that they've done for me. But I do think that enticing me to become a Member of the Clean Plate Club in my early years was not their best advice. I have been a card carrying member since my chubby teenage years and I'm not proud to admit that I am now a Lifer...
