We’re almost done, folks.
Two Turtle Doves. “Excellent,” thought I, “I’ll make candy turtles.” In a perfect world, this would have worked out.
Except I didn’t have any whole walnuts. “Okay,” thought I, “no problem. I’ll just make my favorite Girl Scout Cookies…samoas.”
Instead, I found I fail at making caramel. Again. I even looked up recipes online, and they all seemed to haphazardly throw together sugar and water, then add some sort of cream or milk at the end.
In a perfect world, my cookies would have looked like this:
Instead, it ended up looking like this:
Fail. Ultimate fail.
The caramel was crunchy.
I decided to try it again using caramel made with dates; I figured I couldn’t mess that one up.
Apparently I can.

The cookies were good, just not samoa good. And I realized after making these that they no longer bore any resemblance to the turtles that I had intended to make. Whoops.
On a positive note, I found $5 today.*
*Well, I wish I did. I just had to end the post on a positive note…
