Waiting for my cookies

They're not the real deal but who cares cause they look awesome! Thanks to the fine folks at CHOW.com

Several weeks ago someone in my office came around with an order form for Girl Scout Cookies. His little girls were selling them and he, as a smart businessman, was helping them out by sending it around the office. Of course when it got to my desk, I immediately scrawled my name down for two boxes, one of the sinfully sweet chocolate-caramel-coconut flake Samoas and one of the best selling, crispy, minty chocolate Thin Mints. The chocolate-covered peanut butter and shortbread Tagalongs were calling my name but I was limiting myself to two boxes. (Next year, Tagalongs, next year.)

Since then, I’ve waited patiently wondering every day as I ride the elevator up to my floor, “Will today be the day? Will my Girl Scout Cookies finally be here?”

Regrettably, I’m not here to tell you the good news that they’ve arrived. They haven’t. The wait goes on. I did, however, find the perfect thing to hold me over. In my inbox, mixed in with my Word-of-the-day emails, Facebook notifications and reminders to pay my credit card bills was my weekly CHOW newsletter email titled “Girl Scout Cookie Madness.”

CHOW, which is a great site filled with recipes, reviews and all sorts of foodie fun stuff, had three recipes for their own version of Girl Scout favorites, specifically the two that I ordered and the one that I wanted to but didn’t. So now, I don’t have to wait! I can just make these until the ones I ordered finally surprise me at work one of these days (soon I hope). Check out the mouthwatering Girl Scout cookie knockoffs while I stare longingly at the “Fijis.”
