Girl Scout….Gumbo??

by angelaskitchen on July 27, 2006


Lunch in Unit

Girl Scout Gumbo

Corn Chips

Fruit Salad


Snack:  Goin’ Fishin’

Girl Scout Gumbo…our Caddies were raving about it.  Weird, but it must be a tradition.  I brought the rest of the ground meat mix with green pepper and onions, some chopped tomato from the fridge, a bit of Tofutti Sour cream (as I had  it on hand from the other day), Corn Chips and we were good to go.

The camp did not add anything to the fruit salad but fresh fruit!  So, how easy was that?!  Thank goodness my daughter was fine with bringing homemade GFCF chocolate chip cookies from the freezer, so I was off the hook.  I didn’t have any brownies made and frozen and was not up for baking anything after a day of Girl Scout Camp fun.

For Goin’ Fishin’ snack, I brought little snack baggies of Swedish Fish, GFCF pretzels (for fish nets, don’t ya know), Pik-Nik sticks (had them on hand from the other day), Perky-O’s cereal, and raisins.  My daughter mixed her own snack at camp.
