Thanks Freda, this will really come in handy. I will be in charge of Hospitality at our Iris Regional Convention in Austin later this summer and I will have all my club ladies working on finger edibles.

Freda, I hope you will be able to post some of the military cooks recipe's. I can always multiply a recipe, however, it goes faster if it is already calculated in the recipe. Thanks for your offer.

Dear Freda thank you so much for the offer to share your large yield military cook's recipes. I volunteer with a number of organizations where we are always planning family dinners or fundraisers. We have a Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, BSA District Award Dinners, Church Programs to help feed Homeless &/or Elderly, [also, we try to add to Meals-On-Wheels (for the Shut-Ins) at least 1-2 x a month].

Our Masonic Groups are always looking for recipes, too [the Men's Lodges, Ladies & Gentlemen of The Order of the Eastern Star, girls Jobs Daughters, & the boys in The Order of the Demolay]. Of course the local schools count on parents & grandparents to help with fundraising meals &/or Festivals where a Cafeteria is used to feed folks every day we are open.

We try to have the students help us run booths where we can sell homemade snacks - like your cookies, candies, even breads & cakes. All year people work on creating gifts & useful items like homemade cookie cutters, rolling pins, wooden spoons & spatulas, crocheting wash &/or dish cloths, kitchen towels you can fasten to a belt, refrigerator or oven door. There are many afghans to knit & crochet, quilts to piece, baby items, sweaters, shawls, etc. Of course there are decorative items like doilies, tablecloths, bedspreads, tree ornaments, tree skirts, etc. Boys & Dads make handmade toys [wagons, rocking horses, child sized furniture, bean bag target boards, etc.].

Decorating the community schools, houses, churches, etc. call on sharing skills, planning projects, finding folks with unique skills to learn as we work with them. We are a busy community, but it is better to rely on each other & get to know how to share resposibilities and work together sharing the work and enjoying each other as we solve our jobs & learn new skills.

I will say again, Ms. Freda, how very much we will enjoy & appreciate your sharing these large recipes you and your Mom are willing to share. We will think of your Dad as we make use of what you can share. Thank you dear lady. Thank you very much. LOL :-)
