Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Thankful for people who brought others into their community. For the folks who had more that chose to help those who were struggling. Who, although they didn’t understand each others ways, sat down at the table together. Thinking of that first Thanksgiving celebration today.

Yes, yes.  We love Thanksgiving, what with family, friends, food and all. But sometimes there are those awkward moments where the conversation falls off and … Like Cards against Humanity, here are some topics that can reboot that dinner table chitchat to awesome(Cranberry)SAUCE.  Interestingly, turkey has no more L-trypotophan than red meats, cheese, chocolate, oats… but, hey, where there’s a couch, there’s a way! Happy Napzzz!

Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Hope you ride the gravy train over the turkey terrain to Mount Mashed Potato. May your pies pile up to the skies.

Grateful for my family, friends, and followers… oh and grateful there’s no rationing of sugar and flour.  (Cookie cutter Bed moulding from Truly Mad Plastics , gold background stencil Killer Zebras, ‘give thanks and sweet as pie stencil from The Cookie Box).

My best to you all!DSC_0026

My sister has been hosting Thanksgiving for untold number of years and it it is my God given duty to bring cookies for the dessert table.  Usually, that table is quite full so this year I made turkeys just for the kids (by that I mean mentally a kid so it qualifies a few more folks than you would think). These cookies combined The Cookie Architect designed wave cutter with a small candy corn cutter (both found at the wonderful Truly Mad Plastics web site.) The colors utilized were Americolor egg yellow, orange, chocolate, and sky blue (each icing batch had a drop of egg yellow gel to balance all of the hues).

Oh yeah.  And one of the turkeys is not like the others.  Getting my Sesame Street on.
