Operation Baking Gals

This morning I packed and mailed double batches of Reese's Brownies, Double Chocolate Brownies and Lemon Cookies to the homesick troops in Iraq.

I read somewhere that Lemon was the thing Martha Stewart missed the most while in jail; her family was second. Don't get me wrong, I am not correlating jail time to time in duty. Service men and women exemplify courage, honor and selflessness--three of many characteristics that distinguish themselves from those in the clink. I hope a bite of the Lemon Cookies will bring refreshment and a bit of home to the troops in the hot, desert heat.

Cookies, nuts, dehydrated fruits and pre-paid calling cards are only tokens of our appreciation. How does one truly thank those who have dedicated more than their lives?
