Me too..........my name has finally moved up. Hopefully it doesn't get knocked down by others being moved up because of locality.

Sizz, that probably won't happen. We were only going to bump Gobo if tancowgirl was still in the game (since the ship time to Canada was a few weeks)
Kim & Krysten - you guys have your stars, which mean another continent. (Gobo's still in North America)

Corrine, thank you for all the great things you put in the box and the great soup recipes! The apron is now off to Michigan! Ronjohn, you should receive it Monday or Tuesday. Deadly Sushi and I were going to meet and have our picture taken together with the apron, but since Sushi is sick, I am sending it to Ronjohn first and then Ronjohn can send it to Sushi. Hopefully Sushi and I can “hook up” and have our picture taken together with the apron when it makes it’s way back to the Chicago area.

While I had the apron I tried several new recipes: Creamy vodka lasagna, microwaveable peanut brittle and cranberry pineapple sauce. All three were very good! In fact, I sent a copy of the lasagna to Ronjohn.

The box contains so many great things from all the places it has been. I wanted to capture Chicago – but it is hard to put pizza or beef sandwiches or hot dogs or good Italian food in the box. I found some “gummy” pizza pies to make – so whoever eats one - close your eyes and imagine the best pizza you will ever eat in the states. I then remembered one of my favorites, Fanny May candies. This company makes several types of candy but my favorite is the mint meltaway. I purchased some of these for the box. Between the pizzas and the candy, there should be enough for the next 10 or so people on the list.

I got a slightly larger box, printed up the latest list, put some more mailing labels in the pocket, added some money to the “shipping” pocket, printed some recipes for Ronjohn and signed the apron. Thanks for the memories apron, enjoy Michigan!

Sounds like the Apron has a few additions since I had it. Mailing labels? Shipping pocket? You guys are so smart! I would never have thought of that stuff.

Alix, the box contained some great things from places it has already been - very cool - maybe we can send it on a "Round 2" - that might be fun!

I know I still have a while before the apron gets to me but I'm getting really excited!! I need to start coming up with things to add to the box when it gets here.

Maybe in order to both have fun and move faster we could get together by state and meet up and do as a group theme - Jersey is not that big - I am willing if the rest of the Jersians are - would be fun too meet each other !!!!
