Mardi Gras Mother Daughter Dance, Queen of the Mardi Gras

We wanted to make our annual girl scout mother daughter dance special, so we decide to do a raffle. All the girls got a raffle ticket when they entered, for a chance to be queen of the Mardi Gras Dance. Our older girls wore princess crowns and they all got a chance to pick a younger scout to join them. The girls gave the younger scouts crowns to wear too. When the Mardi Gras princess court was all set we picked a name out of the raffle. The queen came up to the microphone and announced "Let Mardi Gras begin". It was so nice to see the older scouts with the younger scouts.

Gratify Gluten Free Snacks

Looking for new gluten free food products?  Well I won a give basket full of Gratify gluten free products.  I was a little leery a first because I thought there wouldn't be much flavor. The first pretzels I tried were the Dark Chocolate Covered Twists. The dark chocolate coating was rich and flavorful and the pretzels were crisp with a nice salty bite to them. Next, I chose the dark chocolate and peppermint covered twists. They are also wonderful tasting.  I am finding them a little addicting as I keeping running into the kitchen for more. In addition to being gluten free, the dark chocolate and peppermint covered twists also have 0g Trans Fat. The website lists the local store were they can be bought.  I can't wait to try more of these delicious products.
