    WooHoo! Another ice cream I can have all to myself! No one will eat the avocado ice cream that I make, but me. :D

    I love jalepenos on pizza, too.

    OMG! Me too! And they sell them everywhere for a buck a box (cept at the movies - more like $5). I’m an original kind of guy but I don’t turn any of the new flavors down!

    Indeed, he is. He has lived in my home with me for 9 years. He (and the other birds under Federal Permit and in my care) have provided conservation education in 5 states and almost a thousand presentations.

    Cinnamon and Brown Sugar PopTarts and Tagalong Girl Scout cookies. Unfortunately, the Girl Scouts of America does not ship internationally. We'll have to stock up when we go visit in a few months.

    My local chocolatier (chocolatery??) makes divine dark chocolate potato chips that stay crunchy. The trick is to get chips with ridges, a light chocolate coating, and not completely coat the chip with chocolate.

    My guilty pleasures: lip syncing and air guitar to whatever is on my spotify playlist. Anything with poprocks in it - I waited 10 years for them to bring back Fireworks Oreos, last summer DQ had an awesome poprocks blizzard. Laying in bed on Saturday until 11am with coffee and a book. All things avocado.

    Two days ago I'd never heard of dump cake. I looked it up. Should have just stopped there, but noooo.... I made the mistake of sending my husband a link to this wonder. For two days now he has not stopped talking about it. Incessantly.

    Thanks a lot, Steve.

    Unfortunately the Girl Scouts 2019 cookie lineup does not include Tagalongs from what I've read. No worries, though- here's a copycat recipe for Tagalongs from the Today show: https://www.today.com/recipes/homemade-tagalong-cookies-t78181

    Woops! My bad....you can breathe easy- they still have the Tagalongs! I don't know what site I was on that didn't include the Tagalongs in the lineup, but I just checked their official site, and they are on there. Yay! :)

    I think that's one of those cookies that has two names. It's possible the first list you saw was using the other one.

    @IrishLass Whew! Thanks! I didn't cancel my tickets, but I was seriously considering it. I will make sure to dedicate a section of my suitcase to GS cookies.

    I just laughed out loud at work... Weds my hubby was complaining about his weight gain (for the record, he's added a whopping 10lbs to his string bean physique) and Thursday he came home with 5 boxes of GS cookies. Two of them were Momoas - I mean Samoas. With or without the guy on the box, those are some fantastic cookies!

    When my friend sent that to me I laughed out loud too!! But yes, Samoas are my favorite GS cookie followed very closely with the Thin Mints.

    Sorry about the "Dump Cake" Oh wait, I'm NOT.
    I told you I would NOT be held responsible. So easy to put in the oven. Just dump a bunch of stuff in with a cake mix.

    Why am I always on a diet?

    I didn't think you'd be sorry. (and I'm not, either)

    Yesterday I was at the store procuring Dump Cake ingredients when I got a message on my phone that TeresaGG had replied to this post (#57 above). All it did was reaffirm that what I was doing was the right thing. lol

    At least I didn't say anything about dipping whole frozen strawberries into melted milk chocolate.
