It’s Green Week!

Girl Scout Cookie

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up on Saturday, I’ve decided to give the FACS Soundtrack a green twist this week.  That means that every song will either have green in the title, lyrics or theme.  sound like fun?

Today’s selection honors the 100th Celebration of the Girl Scouts (Their logo is green!).  This dynamic organization has played an important role in the lives of millions of young girls since its formation by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, Georgia.  Today there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts! Impressive!

The Girl Scouts are best known for their yummy cookies, right!  Who doesn’t look forward to Girl Scout Cookie Time?  How about planning a baking lab for students to bake their own GS Cookies?  Here are some websites where you’ll find recipes for some of the most popular varieties.
