I'm off to the Inn today!
Oh! Just one more thing! WTH is all the controversy regarding the Girl Scout Cookie sales? Ban Online sales? Are ya kidding me?? Leave the poor kid to her young capitalism ,entrepreneur ways! We teach to be self starters, enterprising independent lil women, and then throw them under the bus when exhibited? I'm screaming YOU GO GIRL!! Heres One clip..........
If IT IS indeed the parents idea... What about all the parents who sell our cookies at work for our girls? Could it be that ONE parent just upstaged the other? Again I say, Why ya cryin? Jeez....

Heres the recipe if you dont have time.

Spiedini Alla Romana
Mario Batali

• 2 cups (1-inch) crusty bread, cut in cubes
• 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 1-inch cubes
• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
• 6 anchovy fillets, rinsed, drained, boned and finely chopped
• 1/2 cup white wine
• 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
• 2 tablespoons basil, cut into chiffonade
• Pinch hot chili flakes

Skewer bread and cheese, alternating cheese and bread. Heat oil in a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, add the skewers and cook until crusty.
Remove from pan to a platter. Add the anchovies and white wine to the pan. Swirl the pan over medium heat to deglaze and, if necessary, scrape with a wooden spoon. Add the parsley, basil and chili flakes, and cook for 1 more minute.
Drizzle the sauce over the skewers and serve at once.

I am behind! I know nothing of a girl scout cookie story! Do share. I will read - when I am sleeping - cause that is the only time I seem to have to myself.

I love you - collecting all your emails! Still working on website. Can't yet decide how to handle - thinking... hmmm...
