Every March, every mint thing on the planet is being peddled in honor of St. Patrick's Day. I love mint so I eat all of those items all month. And naturally, everyone who knows me, brings me mint treats on my birthday, which I inhale and wash down with a mint shake. Then I have a sleeve of girl scout cookies for dessert. I can't figure out why I keep packing on the pounds...
My favorite mint items in no particular order:
Girl Scout Thin Mints (duh!)
McDonald's shamrock shake (I made a date drive me to three different McD's looking for this on my birthday. It was sold out everywhere. Weird...I haven't heard from him since....)
Mrs. Cavanaugh's Mindy Mint truffles/egg with my name on it (can be purchased at Harmon's which is dangerously convenient.)
Mint Brownies (at Kneaders, Food for Thought, home made...I'm not picky.)
Utah mint truffle bar (I eat these like a candy bar)
Junior Mints (in a pinch)
Golden Spoon mint frozen yogurt.
If I were smart, I would be giving up mint for Lent each year (the six weeks before Easter)...then I would look smokin' in my Easter dress. But I'm not smart..I'm hungry. Bring me more mint!
