Operation Baking GALS Roundup From Round 10!

I am finally getting around to doing a blog roundup from round 10 of Operation Baking GALS in which I was a team leader.  I ended up with I think 20 people who sent baked goods to my brother and his fellow troops!  I was beyond thankful and so excited to be a part of this group.  I plan on trying to do this every month now – maybe not team leader every month, but at least baking every month.

Round 11 is NOW open so if anyone would like to join a team and bake for our troops who are serving overseas, it’s very easy.  Bake a box of baked goods or any kind of goodies and ship it.  Viola!  You have put a smile on a soldier’s face for the day.  🙂  If you would like to join a team go here ——> Operation Baking GALS and sign up – what are you waiting for?! 

As I said, I had so many people join my team and it was awesome!  My brother was so excited to receive all of the baked goods.  He said that it was like Christmas which put a big smile on my face. 🙂 He said he took some boxes to their commons area and it was like “birds on a full feeder”.  HA  Knowing that I helped give them a little  piece of home makes me feel good.  They do so much for us so sending a box of cookies is the VERY least I can do every month.  Thank you to EVERYONE who joined my team!

As for the roundup, there are a lot of baked goods here so feel free to stop reading or continue reading if you want to see them all! 

  • As I said in my previous blog post, I made chocolate chip cookie bars, apple spice cookie bars, magic in the middle cookies, snickerdoodles, and sugar cookies.
  • Lindsay made chocolate chip cookies with M&M’s and sent a bunch of other snacks, magazines, and books.

  1. […] Baked Goods Roundup & Leave By militarysister Wow!  When I decided to be a team leader last month for round 10 of  Operatoin Baking GALS, I had NO idea the response that I would get from my family, friends, coworkers and others who found me through the blog world.  I ended up with over 20 people who contributed!  I couldn’t have been more happy, especially for my first time doing it.  If you would like to see everything that was baked, please check it out on my other blog right here—–> Operation Baking GALS roundup for Round 10!
