THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE !!!!!!

I know we have a couple of Veterans on this thread...and i'm sure there are more than a few here who have loved ones who serve or have served.

As the grand-daughter of a wonderful man who was a WWI veteran, the daughter of a Airman who served in Korea - wife of a Marine who served during Vietnam - and mother of a current Air Force Security Force NCO and Phoenix Raven - who served in Iraq ....... I am so very very proud of them all - and ever grateful that they came home safe.

THANK YOU to All.

While dealing with a lot of stress at work I managed to ( escape) for a couple hours & wrap up gifts, get my S.S. package ready to mail, then, while running errands for work even managed to stop in to a post office in a different town. :) Yea, got it out with a few days to spare, now, to wrap up a few more projects.... I'm on a roll now!

My SS package went in the mail yesterday. Traveling way to the very far west of the United States from me. I hope she likes everything.

Dec 7th is good for me to open packages, as I have been staring at two very tempting boxes from my SS for about two weeks. Really hard to hold back. I am not know to be patient, but I have been sewing costumes for "Bah Humbug" for our local community theater. My mind has been on that for a while.

Wow everyone has been very talkative again! I love reading all the recipes that are going around! Will have to remember to send a pm and get added to the list for the complete list of goodies! I will try to get one posted soon too!
All these beautiful gifts that everyone is making are great! Maybe if I am really lucky one of those gifts will be coming to stay with me!!!
I am just finishing up getting my SS package together! It will be mailed on Friday, as I need to wait for payday!
I hope she likes what I found to include!!

December 7 seems to be the day that people are liking. I like that day too. It's my birthday!!!

Figure out a time and then I'll post it at the header of the thread.

Remember, you have just a few more days to get your package in the mail!
We want everyone to make sure they have a package to open.

Speaking of packages.......I got a little squishy in the mail! It says I can't open it right now. Hmph!!!!

A bit late for the topic but here is my favorite cookie

Chocolate Mint Cookies (makes 80)
C butter
1 C brown sugar
2 Tblsp water
2 C semi-sweet chocolate pieces
tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
2 C flour
Green chocolate mints (116) (I use Andes mints but I actually find you can use of mint on each cookie)
Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

In large heavy saucepan, cook butter, sugar, and water until butter melts. Add chocolate pieces and stir until partially melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until melted completely. Pour into a large mixer bowl and cool 10 minutes. At high speed, beat in eggs one at a time. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients beating until just blended. Chill about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 cookie sheets with foil. Roll teaspoons of dough into balls. Bake 10 – 12 min. NO LONGER.
Remove from oven and immediately place a mint on each hot cookie. Allow to soften and then swirl mint on cookie. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Remove from foil sheets and cool.
