I don't mean to be THAT mom, but....

I have no choice.

I feel silly when I need a detailed description of what to expect for the cookie decorating celebration at school on Halloween.



I mean...there's a HUGE difference between a frosted sugar cookie decorated like a spider with licorice legs and Red Hots for eyes...and...a sugar cookie decorated with licorice legs and Red Hots using frosting dabs as "glue".

I'm not crazy, right?  There's a difference?

She'll need her own little thing of frosting...if everyone has a regular cookie, and they're dipping their knives in the frosting, then the whole container will be contaminated.  What color would you guess?  I'm thinking chocolate for spider-effect.  

I found some gluten free licorice.  Let's pray it can be delivered in time.  (Did you know that all licorice-ish stuff contains wheat?  I know.  Crazy.)

But BEFORE the spider cookies on Halloween, next week is pumpkin week.

We'll need some gluten free pumpkin pie and a gluten free pumpkin cookie.

How 'bout them carbs?

This is why I've got a fresh batch of gluten-free sugar cookie dough in the freezer...

Ready, Set, Go.

Let the games begin.
