Girls Scout cookies R US.
My goodness do we have girl scout cookies here at our home.
I can't eat them because they don't make gluten free ones damn it.
Hey Girl Scout Leaders - make gluten free thin mints and watch those bad boys earn the girls scouts a new badge.
I bought some cookies from the little gal who lives behind us.
Then my husband was accosted by the little gal who lives next door to a dog playmate of Izzy's and he didn't know I had already bought some.
Then we had 4 more knocks on our door. I bought from one and Rick did from another.
The last 2 I just had to say no. Then they kindly informed me that I could just donate money instead of buying more cookies if I didn't need anymore.
I wanted to ask her to donate to my cause but I just said no thank you - we've purchased many already and I do feel I have donated adequately.
My husband bought me a couple of boxes of thin mints. He knows they are my favorite American cookie. But the problem is I can't eat thin mints without getting sick so why does he do that to me? I took those tasty little morsels and put them in the freezer in the garage.
Last night I could still hear those little bastards screaming to get into my house. No way Jose. You are staying out in the garage until I wish to be ill from gluten. In my dreams I am eating them from the fridge or freezer (suckers are good cold man!) with a glass of milk.
We certainly have enough Tagalongs for Rick to be eating these peanut butter cookies for the year. He is not sad about this.
If you find yourself stuck with too many boxes of the tasty little Girl Scout treats here is something I have done with mine.
The thin mints I used as a cheesecake crust.
Just replace the graham crackers with thin mints in your food processor and add the butter and make the crust. It is a damn tasty chocolate mint cheesecake.
Rick asked me last night if it would work with his chocolate peanut butter cookies.
I certainly don't see why not.
But the problem would be to get them out of Rick's hands first.
