Today was Day #3 of Chocolate, Date and/or Fig Theme Week.

Recently, I attended a Bird Discovery Day in Portola Valley, CA. In addition to information and exhibits by the Audubon Society; live birds (a bald eagle from the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo + chickens); bird coloring sheets; stuffed birds; and other interesting bird-related activities, the local Girl Scouts chapter were there selling treats.

The troop was selling marshmallow treats in the shape of tiny birds nests and bird eggs, cupcakes, cookies, and chocolate bark with nuts and dried fruits.

This evening I had a bit of the Scouts' homemade dark chocolate bark with hazelnuts, dried figs and cranberries, as well as a bite of their white chocolate bark with pistachios, dried apricots and cranberries. Both were colorful and fun.

Thank you Girl Scouts! I remember selling cookies many years ago when I was a young Scout. I hope you still receive merit badges for activities. I would have loved getting a badge for chocolate making. (I loved those merit badges.)
