Operation Baking Gals Round 19 – Roundup

I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who participated in Team Beantown Baker for Operation Baking Gals Round 19. Team members sent care packages to Richard who is stationed in Iraq. Richard should be getting all of his packages later this month. Thanks again everyone who helped make Richard’s day a bit brighter.

I asked the members of my team to send me any pictures or links to blog updates about their packages. I love seeing all the hard work people have put in to help make a stranger’s day. Here are some of the things that Richard will be receiving from our team.

Candi sent banana bread, vanilla cinnamon Amish friendship bread, 2 dozen walnut brownies, 1 dozen chocolate chip cookies, 1 dozen chocolate chocolate chip cookies, 1 dozen M&M cookies, and 1 dozen Lucky Charms crispy treats.

Rebecca sent peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, bourbon walnut banana bread, oatmeal white chocolate cranberry cookies, and white chocolate walnut brownies.

Shauna and Erin sent cowboy cookies, oatmeal heath cookies, chocolate peanut butter cookies, oatmeal pumpkin cookies, butterscotch cookies and many more totalling about 20 dozen cookies! They also sent some candy, beef jerky, and magazines.

Stephanie of Lovely McDaniel Life sent oreo brownies, regular brownies, and peanut butter cookies as well as some candy.

Caroline sent magic cookie bars, peanut butter and jelly bars and some jerky, gum, candy, nuts, drink mixes, coffee, and books of sudoku puzzles.

Cara sent Monster Cookies, Pecan Sandies, and White Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies.

Lauren of Baking Away sent Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Devil’s Food Cake Mix Cookies, Caramel Corn and some candy.

Paula from The Culinary Cheesehead sent White Chocolate Macadamia nut cookies, Caramel Brownies, Samoa bars, Peanut Butter & Jelly bars, AA batteries, and Baby wipes.

Thank you to everyone who participated this round. If you know someone who is stationed overseas and would like me to sponsor them for a future round of Operation Baking Gals, please let me know.

    It’s so cool to see so many people involved in Operation Baking Gals. Those soldiers are definitely going to feel the love from our goodies!

    I (thankfully) dont have anyone you could sponsor, but just wanted to let you know how awesome it is that you’re doing this. My husband has deployed twice to Iraq in the past few years, each time for a year, and homebaked goodies were always among his favorite things to recieve. He recently got out of the marine corps but his unit is heading to afghanastan in the coming months, if I hear of anyone in need of extra goodies I’ll be sure to think of you girls! Thanks so much for supporting the troops!

    This is a wonderful idea. The soldiers certainly need love from back home and what better way than cookies.
