So that was hectic!
I don't write about it much anymore but I am still the leader of Biscuit's Girl Scout Troop. This year they are JUNIORS (4th Grade) which is nearly impossible to believe.
it's hard to take photos and lead a hectic meeting. I should have a photographer follow me around a la Joanna (who I think is a great blogger but it cracks me up that everything in her life seems to be professionally photographed)
This year the girls are taking over running meetings but I like to kick off the year with earning a badge so I ran the first few meetings and we worked on the Simple Meals badge. It wasn't all that simple.
Last week the girls made a mango coconut pudding, learned to cook eggs (fried or scrambled) and made blackberry jam.
This week we needed extra time! The girls made spring rolls followed by brown rice and chicken and veggie stir fry with English trifle for dessert. I'm not sure how much they learned other than the fact they should appreciate whoever cooks them dinner every night. Oh, and chicken splatters when added to a hot pan. Nobody got burned or cut so I figure the whole thing was a success.
Despite it being about 4 trillion degrees in my kitchen it was a super fun evening!
