So I have a lot of thoughts about last year and the coming year. I am not really a New Years Resolution person. They don't work for me very well. But I do like to think about what I need to do to be better and what I can change and improve on. I do, however, set a lot of goals all year long and I have a pretty good system for accomplishing those goals. I love it.
One of the things I really want and need to improve on is our family diet. We do well in some areas but we have a lot of room for improvement. And luckily I have family members who know their stuff. Check out Jane's blog here.
But before you do that. And before I make any big diet changes - try this recipe.
You know these little goodies?
Don't we all love them. Well now you can make your own. I am not even kidding. My sister-in-law taught us. There isn't much to know. So easy she even taught her 8 year old activity day girls.
Homemade Girl Scout Thin Mints
Package of Andes Thin Mints (is that what they are called? You know what I mean.)
Melt chocolate (in double broiler or microwave if you are careful)
Dip crackers in chocolate using a little pair of tongs or get creative. Let it drip off a little - you don't want too much excess. Then lay cookie/cracker on a piece of parchment. Let set or put outside in the frigid air for a few minutes.
Seriously? You can't eat only one. Try it.
But then let's really get it together people. We don't need so much sugar and junk in our diet.
