At every Odom gathering, there is never a shortage of food. Even those years when we said we would keep it simple and not go all out, we did. We just can’t help ourselves!
Eddie and I are generally in charge of bringing desserts and so we’d go by Costco and pick up their pumpkin pie, apple pie and assorted cookies. Sometimes we’d mix it up and throw in a key lime pie. Honestly, there was never a shortage of sweets either!
Then one year I decided to bring a cookie cake from Great American Cookies. These cookies have always been a hit with our kids. Heck, they’ve been a hit with me too! So we took the cookie that year and you guessed it, it was hit with everybody there…not to mention the cute turkey design for the occasion!
This year, we were in the process of planning our Odom get-together at my brother-in-law’s house in Jasper via text message when he texted – “FYI y’all bring the big cookie Saturday.” Our reply…”you got it!”
And so, I think it’s safe to say that a new Thanksgiving family tradition has been born…the Big Cookie! Oh…and we sometimes have it at Christmas too!
I am bringing Green Bean Casserole, but I think I might have to add a Turkey cookie now!! Great idea.
It’s the best thing we’ve added to our Thanksgiving gatherings!!! Highly recommend it!
