Pass the Turkey for a Touchdown!

My mom is having Thanksgiving dinner for my brother's family and was asking what time they would like dinner served.  I reminded her that the Bears will be playing on Thanksgiving Day, so she could check the TV schedule to know what time it would be SAFE to have dinner. 

There are many ways to celebrate Thanksgiving and football. 
 I prefer NOT putting one of these on my lawn: 

I also do not want to wear this to our Thanksgiving dinner.( if you do)

So, instead, I made cookies.  Before you think that I am creative and came up with this idea all by myself, I will be honest and admit that these cookies are the result of a very good friend visiting me with some very good wine.  You can see Diane's version here:  As you can see, Diane is very good at sharing.  That is why we call her My Cookie Friend.

I know the Bears wear navy, but that just isn't a good cookie color (what were they thinking???), so I took the liberty of dressing the turkeys in more seasonal tones of the Bear blue and orange.
Thanksgiving and football . . . goes together like mashed potatoes and gravy.

Remember all your blessings this Thanksgiving and take time for hugs (even if you do it during halftime).

  1. It was fun to see your version of the turkey today. I hope you enjoyed making these cookies as much as I did! Are any of your neighbors going to recognize the inflatable turkey in your photo? :)
