Military Monday.

January 25, 2010
Pretty little mini-cheesecakes from the Hungry Cook

This week I went back to my original theme for the Military Monday posts, a red, white & blue dessert or food item. If you have any that you’d like me to feature, then please e·mail me at and send me a photo or two, tell me someone to whom I should give credit and a URL to link back to if possible! All foods and desserts are welcome.

Now back to the sobering reality of Military Monday. I attended this past weekend a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors Project, a tribute to James McNaughton, the first NYPD officer to be killed in Iraq. The Wounded Warriors is a great organization and they deserve every penny they raise, so please think about donating. Every week I list a set of names of soldiers who have had their lives taken from them in one of the two wars we’re in. I think it’s a dose of reality we all need to take. We need to take better care of our soldiers; better medical care, better psychological care, etc. They do too much for us for us to “forget” about them, before, after or during their time of need.

So thank you…
