Remember the Troops

Remember the Troops

One of our America’s Table staff has a husband stationed in Iraq this Christmas, so we’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that we can’t all be home for the holidays. One way to let our military personnel abroad know that we’re thinking of them is to send a package of goodies by December 15th.  This shoutout is for the Army First Infantry Division.

Need ideas for what to send? Specifics vary, depending on where they are deployed, but in Iraq, here’s a list of what’s useful:

  • Baby wipes
  • Disposable razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Shower gels
  • Multivitamins
  • Semi to non-perishable foods


If you’d like to send a package, please address it to:

Any Soldier

c/o Major Smith

1st ID HHBN, Camp Union III

APO AE 09348

And here’s a recipe for the chewy flourless chocolate cookies we put in our package, with special thanks to Pam Comstock at Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in Emigrant, Montana for this spectacular recipe! You’ll want to make a double or triple recipe and save a few for yourself!


Chewy Flourless Chocolate Cookies

Prep time: 35 minutes

Serves: makes 15 cookies


  • 1 ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ Dutch cocoa
  • 1 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Mix together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add egg whites, stirring with a spoon until the mixture forms a dough. Add nuts. If mixture is not thick enough to form balls, add more powdered sugar and cocoa.
  3. Form dough into balls, place on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 300 degrees until glossy and crackled.REMEMBER THE TROOPS on

    Acoustic levitation allows small objects, like droplets of liquid, to float. Unless you travel into the vacuum of space, sound is all around you every day. But most of the time, you probably don’t think of it as a physical presence. You hear sounds; you don’t touch them. The only exceptions may be loud nightclubs, cars with window-rattling speakers and ultrasound machines that pulverize kidney stones. But even then, you most likely don’t think of what you feel as sound itself, but as the vibrations that sound creates in other objects. The idea that something so intangible can lift objects can seem unbelievable, but it’s a real phenomenon. Acoustic levitation takes advantage of the properties of sound to cause solids, liquids and heavy gases to float. The process can take place in normal or reduced gravity. In other words, sound can levitate objects on Earth or in gas-filled enclosures in space.
