I remember when I was growing up and my brothers (one 2 years younger and one 2 years older)went to the military and were stationed over seas in Korea.My mother and I would make the Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies and send them to my brothers and boyfriends when they were over seas and then I grew up and got married and sent my husband the cookies (which he had to share with his buddies or get in trouble) and then passed the tradition on to my kids when all 4 of the were in the military.Now one of my sons that just got out of the military about 2 years ago insists that he get his Tollhouse cookies for his birthday every year.I also make them for my grandchildren when they visit.This is a very important tradition and one that my kids now do with their families.

I love family traditions.  The ones that involve food seem to bring the warmest memories.

Pamelar R:  And according to my Navy son, it doesn't matter if the cookies or baked goodies arrive smashed up and 2 weeks old. They enjoy receiving anything...I think it's more the idea that someone is thinking of them than what we send. When my son went on his first deployment in 2009-10, I sent him baked goodies every month. When the ship returned from deployment we greeted it and got to meet some members of his squadron. They ALL commented on all the goodies I baked and sent and were so appreciative. So if you know of anyone in the armed services, share your baking with them.Wink

I love family traditions too, and when they involve food, it makes them so special.
I  sent my son care packages when he and his wife were in the peace corp. I always worried they wouldn't get them, they always did show up, a few months later.
Thanks for your story

We love traditions too.
Years ago I started making homemade manicotti for New Year's Day. One year there was so much going on and so much to do that day that I mentioned that I might not be able to make them this year on New Year's Day.  My youngest son said:  But Mom!  It's a tradition.  Of course, I did make them.
