Girl Scout Cookies...

Janeen reminded me that Girl Scout Cookie season has started and guided me to a great link about allergies and GSC.

But how about making them yourself? I bet someone crafty out there could adjust some of these recipes to make them allergen free for the top 8. (Better yet, wouldn't it be great if a company like Enjoy Life took a stab at it? Maybe a collaboration could happen?!?)

Or, if you're like me and watching your girlish figure, you can always buy a box and donate it to our troops (someone told me there may even be a checkbox on the order form now to do exactly that). Or you could send them to your son/daughter/neighbor off in college. And I know the Girl Scouts will always appreciate a donation, even if you don't walk away with the box of cookies.

Supporting the Girl Scouts is important, but there's no way I can take a chance of having those in the house. Little B is way more important.

An enjoy life thin mint would be wonderful. I guess we will be donating too.

FYI, the girl scout cookies in Canada are made by Dare, and are nut free.

Gee, we get off easy because our niece sends us the Girl Scout magazine fundraising stuff and we hear nothing about the cookies. (I do remember the samosas with fondness...)

samosas are still my favorite. i would love it if divvies or enjoy life would make versions of some of our favorite girl scouts cookies.

Last year Thin Mints were produced in a peanut-free and tree nut-free facility (in America). I don't know if the same goes for this year, but it's worth a check. When I bought my Thin Mints last year, the girl who sold them to me (who had a nut-allergic sister) handed me the press release from Girl Scouts stating that they were produced in a nut-free facility. My son in nut-allergic.
