It's Girl Scout Cookie Time!

Can you believe January is almost over? And Girl Scout Cookie Sales only have about a month left for 2010 - and then they'll be all gone until next year!

Time to stock those freezers with Thin Mints!

What? You don't know about freezing Girl Scout Cookies??? Let me tell you something new...

Thin Mints and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream make the BEST summer desserts! If you're serving adults-only, drizzle a little creme de menthe on the top.... Mm Mm Good!

Frozen Peanut Butter Patties are almost like ice cream bon bons - the crunchy chocolate coating and the softer peanut butter filling.... wonderfully refreshing on a warm day (or any day, really!)

PLUS my troop and many others will be collecting donations to send cookies overseas to the soldiers still in the Middle East. For the last two years my Girl Scout troop has sent cookies overseas as part of Operation Homefront, and received grateful emails from homesick soldiers.

So next time you pass those Girl Scouts, standing at the table in your supermarket or at the Mall, take a minute and buy a box of cookies. Buy them for yourself, for the soldiers, or to freeze for those summer guests you know are going to show up on your doorstep.

You'll be supporting a great cause, and getting some great cookies!
