Operation Baking Gals Round 4 - Page 2

post #16 of 30
We are sending to a soldier that is expecting our packages and the package should include OBG on the From address line, so barring complications, our soldiers get the packages.

If you have a soldier and would like for him to be included- contact Susan at the baking gals website and he can be put on a list for someone to host a team for him in the future. (You can host if you have a blog).

It takes about a week for them to receive the packages so ship something that will stay fresh and tasty. The restrictions are pork and meltables (like choc candy BARS).
You can use choc chips or the like in cookies. If you have a vac sealer it works great to suck as much air out as you can before they go flat, and then seal. Some other things you can include are instant pudding mixes or single crystal light mixes (anything that can be mixed with water).
You know we can't afford to let one moment pass us by

yes and putting them in the ziploc containers works well too, avoid smashing them and keeps them fresher. Trust me, I was in the Navy and no one is going to get mad if you mail them some cookies. The trick is to label everything you send. If it is a batch of White Chocolate and Pecan, then label that batch as so...usually they wind up putting them out in a common area for everyone to grab as they walk by... so the label helps for those with allergies. I have seen the sites that say don't mail HB goods, but I don't think we need to worry about that, as all of our guys and gals are expecting these.. so there is no suprise and it has to do with OBG. Please post any further questions you have. Send your troop members to Susan at the www.bakinggals.com site, and she can put them into a group. They may or may not make it into this batch, but it usually happens once a month or so... thanks for asking!

I am one of those who have a team for Ohio soldiers of Ohio bakers-and you can get more info and tips from my site for Ohio.

I know you said you didn't want to hijack, but I was on the website last night looking for a team to sign up for since this is my first time baking. I was hoping to find a team that was sponsoring Ohio soldiers. I don't remember seeing this team on there, but I would love to join it

That new little reynolds hand held vacuum sealer is great for this since you can take out as much or as little air as you want and they can reseal (not re-vacuum, but it's good to be able to seal it up) the bag after they have some cookies. The unit is only 10$ at wal*mart and the bags are usually about 3$ for a box.

My brother is overseas and he said that baked goods are always great.. everyone loves them.

I was wondering would I just send one package during the shipping dates or can you send more than ones?

I just saw an advertisement for Ziploc having a new vacuum thing too, but it's like a handheld pump thing and not seen it to see how much it is.

The ziploc one works like a basketball pump.. it's manual whereas the reynolds one is battery operated so there's less work. It's a little loud, but it's effortless.

I use my reynolds vacuum for everything.. it's great for the money. I'd love a real FoodSaver, but this will do for now. LOL

It doesn't say if the 20,000 have been reached, but they are giving away coupons to get a free ziploc one. I'll go for free for sure.

I visited the site after your post & signed up with a team. The "winning" team has a soldier who has a birthday in November. That was the deciding factor for me. Figured there wouldn't be a better way of celebrating my birthday (also in November) than making it brighter for another fellow Scorpio. icon_wink.gif
Thanks for posting this so I knew about it.
