Default Good points, all. . .

Thank you much! So, here's the deal. . .

I made the dough for the two kinds of cookies yesterday -- Toll House and the toffee/oatmeal (nice surprise, additionally, for husband who is on the road but due in this afternoon). You Guys convinced me the cookies are OK.

In the meanwhile, I had a hankering for some great soup as it's raining and chilly and dreary. I put together a pot of homemade vegetable beef, and because I have easily 8 quarts (and plenty of those quart-sized containers from take-out Chinese egg drop soup), I'll carry over some soup.

I like corn muffins with soup, so I'll just make a few extras, too.

I enjoy doing things like this. I have had good neighbors most everywhere I have ever lived, so I like to repay the kindnesses.

I bake for my neighbors, too. They seem to prefer zucchini bread over anything else ...

As far as ingredients and allergies, etc., just bake what you think they'd like (heck, you could always ask first ... nothing wrong with saying "I'd like to welcome you to the neighborhood; would a plate of cookies be OK?") and let them know what ingredients you've used.

Little gestures like this seem to be going by the wayside, alas. Good for you for keeping them up.

Ooooh, yummmy.....homemade soup and muffins. I'm moving to your neighborhood. I don't like sweets so your generous welcoming gift would be ideal for me. You're so kind.

Just make sure to include an ingredients list so that if they do have a problem, they can know if it's okay to eat your goodies.
