Cooking For the Wounded Phase II

Americas Wounded Heros and Warrior Legacy Foundation teamed up on Saturday at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and prepared BBQ chicken, fried squash, hamburgers, hot dogs and assorted sides for the wounded and anyone else who happened by. Apparently the hotel kitchen was down for renovation, and the timing was perfect.

BRAVO ZULU and OOOOOOOORAHHHH to everyone who helped make it a great day, especially Laughing Wolf from Blackfive, who I'm sure will have a post up soon. LW extended the invitation to WLF to help kickoff Phase II of Cooking For the Wounded World Tour. We were more than pleased to accept.

Special thanks are due to some good people who helped us with the funding.

Dessert was provided courtesey of Soldiers Angels. We had two first class pastry chefs in the house. The young Ladies who make up Yellow Bowl Bakery are sharp. The bakery is located in Lafayette, Indiana. They are also known as "Bakers Without Borders".

Let me tell you what these two young Ladies did this past weekend. They loaded a van in Lafayette, Indiana with pecan pies, blueberry pies, pumpkin pies, Texas Sheet Cake, Red Velvet cupcakes with buttercream frosting so good it should be illegal, and brownies and DROVE to Washington DC to serve the wounded warriors at Walter Reed. Not only are they totally committed to supporting the troops, they are both cuter than two puppies in a pet store window.

BostonMaggie came down with Mary Ripley from USNI and lent a hand.
