SCOUTS AND SCALLOPS RULE THE DAY
Today we honor a fine association the Girl Scouts. Yes officially it is Girl Scout Week and today is “NATIONAL GIRL SCOUT DAY.” Don’t you just love those cookies, our favorite is the thin mints, but I personally like them all, so if you see the girls selling them today buy a few boxes and keep a great organization going. The Girl Scouts was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912 after she met Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting. Upon returning to Georgia she started the Girl Scouts. The Scouts help teach values such as honesty, fairness, compassion, character, fairness and much more. While learning these values of life the girls earn badges while also acquiring other practical daily skills. Hats off to a fine organization from Joey Z’s Speakeasy.
What would be a day without talking food and it is a good one today, I love them and I know Roe goes crazy for them. “NATIONAL BAKED SCALLOPS DAY” is here and I could really go for some today but I don’t think it’s in the stars right now. Sea Scallops or Bay Scallops will do anytime, but I do prefer the larger of which I believe are Bay Scallops. You don’t have to wrap my scallops in bacon or even mix them with cheese or fancy sauce just pile them on a plate with some melted butter in a bowl and leave, Joey Z will take care of the rest. If you are in the mood for seafood today or a nice dinner after work make it a scallop night and do it right.
Being it’s a Monday I’ll let you get started working and enjoying your day. Have fun and be careful out there.
