Operation Baking GALS

We Can Bake It!

We Can Bake It!

So, a few weeks ago, my friend April started talking about this program called Operation Baking GALS, whereupon someone you know (April) adopts a soldier (in this case, her brother Luke, who you can read more about here) and recruits everyone she knows to bake goodies for him and his friends. So … I signed up. I live near a very large military installation and I love, respect, and honor soldiers and their families every chance I get. In this case, I admit that I was a little late. Technically the deadline was Saturday, July 11. I managed to get my shipment into the hands of the post office two minutes before they closed today – July 13. Well, I was close.

So, all that being said, I have now placed in the mail a package of 30 of my “top secret” brownies (I thought it was appropriate, given that they’re being sent to the military). Here’s hoping they survive the journey to Iraq and make it into the hands (and mouths) of some hungry, deserving soldiers. It ended up looking like this when I was all done …

Brownie Box

April, I’m sorry I forgot to take pictures of the brownies mid-packing. Also, I forgot to put ANY note in the box. So if they get there and are nasty or otherwise, please let me know, I’ll try again.

  1. Lorena – Thanks so much for doing this! I’m sure they will appreciate them soooo much! 🙂 I know that my cookies and goodies (even those with icing!) made it to Iraq just fine so I’m sure they will be great. I think next time I should implement that each person send some goodies to the team leader so she can taste test…hmmm… 😉

  2. I really like this blog. I am always into hearing what people are baking, making, and eating. And I will definitely try some of your recipes! I look forward to reading your future posts!!
