Care Package to Timor

Hey there,

I have to admit that right now I am looking like a GREASER. I have put coconut oil throughout my whole entire head. You may think that I am crazy…but let me tell you. If you have a dry, irritated scalp it does wonders.

Ok…what did I get up to tonight?

My friend Anders‘ birthday is on Saturday.

So I am sending him a care package. He lives in Timor, he is the friend which I went and visited while I was in Timor.

(For those of you who may not have known..I went to Timor in July of this year and it CHANGED my life…see here and click on the Timor posts. It is the reason that I am going to nursing school next year.)

Anyways, Anders has pretty much given his life to live in the GLORIOUS mountains of Timor running a free clinic for people.

I e-mailed him to see what he’d like to have for his birthday…because our mutual friend Lou is going up this weekend. He wrote back and I got baking!

Anzac Biscuits–an Australian cookie/biscuit..the recipe I PROMISE will come later this week 🙂

P1012986They’re a SUPER crunchy oatmeal/coconut cookie–vegan 🙂 that were sent from Australia to the soldiers in WWII..the only ones that could travel. A great cookie to be sending to Timor.

He also requested chocolate cookies..this is what I could muster up..not awesome..but when you live in the mountains of Timor, anything like this is superb.

This is me in my awesome baking attire.P1012989

Then my foot started cramping…oh my god..have you ever had that happen? It hurt SO BAD!P1012990

I am excited for Anders to get his care package and I am also excited for everyone in Timor to have a go, as they say, at some cookies 🙂

Do you send care packages/cards to people?

    You are so cute with all those cookies!! I think it’s great that you are sending a care package to someone who means a lot to you.

    I have sent care packages to family and friends as they needed them throughout the years. At Christmas we send treat baskets to family. It’s fun to put it all together and neat to imagine how they will feel as they open it all up!

    Have a great night!

      I love to do little treat baskets around the holidays. I think that I am going to do the cookie mixes in a jar…but maybe a healthy something 🙂

    I love to send care packages. I actually enjoy sending gifts to people more than I like recieving them. Makes me smile.

    Those biscuits are some of my favorites from my aussie friends. I love that and pavlova.
