Operation Baking Gals Round 31 Roundup

I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who participated in Team Beantown Baker for Operation Baking Gals Round 31. Team members sent care packages to my friend Nate who is stationed in Afghanistan. Nate should be getting all of his packages later this month. Thanks again everyone who helped make Nate’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 Nate will be receiving from our team.

She also lined her box with red/white/blue tissue paper and sprinkled red/white/blue foam stars throughout.

Erin and Shauna sent sixteen dozen cookies and bars: Cookies and Cream Cookies, Dream Bars, Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, White Chocolate and Walnut Cookies, Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Mary sent 6 dozen snickerdoodle and molasses cookies.

Debbie sent 1 dozen each of Brazilian coffee cookies, Mounds cookies, Almond Joy cookies, double peanut cookies, sugar cookies, patriotic chocolate chip cookies, patriotic raspberry cheesecake cookies, peanut/chocolate chip cookies, chex mix, sunflower seeds, candy, gum, beverage mixes, Ritz bits & Oreo snack paks, beef jerky, granola bars, neck coolers, and relaxation ball.

    Hi there! Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your site! I’m in Beantown also. 🙂 I was just wondering what kinds of baked goods you’re looking for. I’ve heard before that they prefer not to have things with chocolate if it will be hot over there (due to melting).

    Hi becca – last time I sent chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies. Sturdy cookies or bars tend to do well, but yes chocolate can melt. The FAQ has some other ideas as well. Some people send prepackaged protein bars or other items the soldiers can’t get over there. Feel free to email me if you have other questions.
