Backwards Day and donuts...

What do you do when you are celebrating the end of cookie season?
Crazy stuff!
We did our entire meeting in reverse, starting with the "goodbye squeeze".
Then snack, craft, book work, new news, old news, law, pledge, and finally the welcome.
They LOVED it, LOL!
Snack was something different: it wasn't healthy!
We took cake donuts, strung them on a tape measure, and had them eat them - with no hands!
They had napkins in their hands, to catch just in case the donut fell off.
It was a HOOT!

Area Dance

Usually our area scout group has a dance in January -- this year, things were a little different as we have no solid organizer. One troop leader (the awesome Miss Margaret!) took over the dance and got things rolling.

Snacks, a DJ and fun patch. What more could a girl ask for?
Enjoy the pictures

Our Last Cookie Booth

Cookie time is always so much fun, but to be honest?
My favorite time is when it is over, LOL!
This was our last booth, at Canoecopia.
We "blingged our booth" in canoe style --

Now -- to store all our signage until next year.

Indian Butter Chicken

This is what we served at our Indian Booth at the International Bazaar that we took part in for world thinking day!

It is EASY to make, uses the most popular spices from Indian and the children will actually eat it if it is served over rice.  We made a double batch for the crock pot.
Indian Butter Chicken
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tsp McCormick Red Curry Powder
3 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp paprika
.5 tsp garlic powder
.5 tsp ginger powder(or 1 tsp fresh ginger chopped up)
4 tbsp butter
1 28oz can of diced tomatoes
1 14oz can of tomato sauce
3/4 cup heavy cream
1.5-2lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts diced into approx 1 inch pieces.
Melt butter in large pot on medum-low, dump in spice mixture to create a paste of sorts and heat for 45 seconds to really bring out the flavors. Throw in the chopped up chicken and mix it all over to coat the chicken and heat on medium for a few minutes, making sure to stir it. Drain some of the liquid from the diced tomatoes out, put the tomatoes and tomato sauce in a blender and blend it up, pour into chicken/spice mixture.
Bring it up to a simmer, if uncovered it will thicken up a bit more than if you cover it. Stir a few times over the next hour, pour in the cream and stir. Serve it up over rice and then, rip into it like a monkey on a cupcake!

World Thinking Day

The area event was a success~!
Several troops participated and we ROCKED India.
Their poster board, our Indian Butter Chicken, our beaded bracelets, all sold like crazy and we raised over $100 for the scholarship fund!
