Oh, What a girl can do!! Without a peanut allergy!

The first part of the title is a byline on the boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.  Today we had the red box.  Yes, each cookie type has a different color box.  The red box is for the Peanut Butter Patties.  Given the hysteria over peanut allergies we must commend the Girl Scouts for continuing with this product. Clearly they were not being sold at all the schools that now ban peanuts.  But there is a recent paper in the New England Journal of Medicine about tolerizing children at a young age with peanuts to see an 80% drop in peanut allergies. Maybe one day the schools will see these cookies.

More GS cookies and some leftovers!
Saved for a later date allergies or not!
The last of the minis.  We don't understand why it took so long to finish these.
We actually didn't see the cookies, however.  As it turns out there were enough of the Thanks a Lot and mini chocolate chips left and too few cake hour participants to require us opening this new box. So we knocked off the leftovers and saved these for a later date.
