Operation Baking GALSJuly 13, 2009 at 8:53 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments
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 …
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.
