You are about to witness one of my all-time favorite Girl Scout memories.
Not hiking…not camping…not sing-a-longs…not crafting…not field trips…
Nope. For me there was no greater memory than the day we went with our mom…Troop Leader, Bonnie Haave…to pick up our troop’s cookies. The boxes were piled up so high that there was no where else to sit, but on the boxes. We, of course, thought this was pretty much the coolest thing to ever happen.
Samoa Ice Cream
1 pint vanilla ice cream
5 samoas, roughly chopped
Allow the ice cream to soften. When soft, add to a bowl and combine thoroughly with the chopped samoas. Add back to the carton and cover. Return to the freezer to firm up before serving.
I can’t believe it took me 10 years of living in the city to finally make it over to the San Francisco Flower Mart. They have an amazing selection of flowers and plants…but they also have tons more…like every type of vase you could possible imagine, endless gift wrapping supplies, and fun party decor.
I first trekked over there in search of carnations and supplies to make pompadours for my New Year’s Eve table, and I’ve been back many times since. I was pleasantly surprised to find much more than just flowers, and it will for sure be my new go-to when looking for unique party decor.
