Happy Earth Day!
I contemplated posting something serious about Earth Day and land use today. But then, I began to think, you know, every day is Earth Day here at Land Use Prof Blog, and so I thought about what was really on my mind today. And that is Earth Day cookies.
Here is my plight: I am teaching an Environmental Law survey class this semester and I wanted to buy Earth Day sugar cookies like the ones below. I tried three grocery stores and came up empty handed. In lieu of Earth Day cookies, my students received butterfly and tulip cookies, which was the best I could do from the local Whole Foods. I seem to recall that these globe cookies were a staple of my Earth Day experience growing up and they used to be quite easy to get. Have Earth Day cookies become an endangered species? Are they hopelessly un-cool by now? I certainly hope not; they are delicious.
[I'll get back to important topics tomorrow.]
