Operation Baking Gals
We joined Beantown Baker’s Operation Baking Gal’s team this month. Then I dropped the ball and left my 8 year old to pick it up. She did a great job!
Operation Baking Gals is a group of people who bake cookies and send them to servicemen and women who are deployed. A nice care package to show our appreciation. It’s hard to leave your family and friends for such a long time, and whether or not we support the war I think we should all support the troops. This organization offers a nice and personal way to do that, and my kids were all over it.
Niamh instantly set about baking her now famous mint cookies for our soldier, whose name is Ryan.
She also decided to give him the enormous amount of halloween candy she had left, her brothers kicked in generously to that. We’re hoping that Ryan will enjoy the cookies and candy and that we can brighten his day a little.
This is what our box looks like right before we sent it: Did you know that putting apple peels in the paper towels in the box is recommended? Not sure why – I’m assuming it has something to do with preserving the cookies. . .
