I remember back in the early 70's a roomate and I went to Canada camping. On our way back our car broke down in Lewiston. So we spend 2 days there. Back then I remember a lot of shoe outlets. My sister works for the state in Augusta, I think that is near there.

Made more cookies yesterday. I made some Chocolate Biscotti and some Gingersnaps from Comfy Belly. We had a Christmas party late afternoon at some friends and I was pretty good with the food. When I got home I munched on a few of my Christmas Cookies. When I went to bed I tested and was at 83. I was 88 this morning. That is a really low bg for me in the morning. So there is something in these cookies that really keeps bgs lows. I don't know if it is the Blanched Almond Flour or what, but it does work. I think I have found a new Diabetic Cookie Diet.

The only outlets are in Freeport now. Yes, Augusta is about 30 miles from Lewiston.

My sister lives right outside Freeport and they try to avoid the outlets at all cost. In the summer it is terrible with all the busses. Her kids never had problems getting summer jobs at all the stores.

@jwags I have just spent a good 15 minutes drooling over the cookie recipes on comfy belly. I notice that she uses honey to sweeten - can I ask what you substituted and how well it worked?? Thanks - I am desperate to find a good cookie recipe - I have bread substitute, breakfast bars, brownies and sponge cake sorted - it would nice to add cookies to the list ;-)
