I'm a baking fool...

Last week I spent 4 days baking for a bake sale, a Thanksgiving dinner and the scrapbooking crop (where THE TRUFFLE was a huge hit.) Yesterday and today I have been baking cookies and fudge for about 40 Marines. It is a LOT of baking, and I am not near done, but it is worth it to send these to the men and women in our military. :-)

I have also learned about popping air popped popcorn and using it to help pack boxes instead of packing peanuts. Definitely going to give that a try. So, tomorrow 3 boxes filled with Gingersnaps, M&M cookies, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, fruit cake cookies and about 6 lbs. of fudge will make there way half-way around the world. :-) Sure hope they get there in one piece. :-)

Then, in two weeks I will be attending 2 cookie exchange parties. :-) Like I said, I am a baking fool. :-)

Me, too! I made 4 pans of pumpkin bars today to be handed out to the homeless tomorrow evening.

Oooo. I would love a cookie exchange. I just love cookies.

Dost I hear the word FUDGE... That 6 lbs could have found it's way to your favorite Bro.il vs being shipped to the desert, alas it is a good cause for the journey around the world.

LOL... yes it is, Laslo. ;-) I'll make some for you at Christmas. ;-)
