HAPPY 4th OF JULY!
"THANK YOU" to any individual, and all Veterans, for their contribution and patriotism for supporting a major component of what is good in this world - AMERICA!
Here's a short letter (pictures in next post) from one person dedicated to spreading freedom (and Daddy Cakes) into Afghanistan, near the border of Pakistan. We love seeing the people that bring the colors of freedom to any landscape.
Dear Daddy Cakes,
After some googling, I happened upon Daddy Cakes. Unsure how good any "just add water" mix could be, I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Today was the trial run, so CPT Grant and I used ourselves as guinea pigs and tested the Vivacious Vanilla mix--MAJ Atkins is on leave. We topped it with fresh apples and agave syrup (he got that in a care package). The result was out of this world. Almost literally. We both felt like, just for a moment, we weren't in a war zone worried about dodging bullets or mortar rounds (a few days ago, one of those missed me by about 10 feet), but were at home in our pajamas enjoying a lazy Sunday brunch. I was very impressed at just how delicious they were. I can't thank you enough. In a place like this, especially after a year, little things like a tasty brunch go a long, long way. And now that we've done our test run, we can start sharing with everyone else out here.
