It's Thanksgiving Eve
A day usually spent in the kitchen
But we still take time for tea
(although an early tea today)
In the dining room
With the turkeys!
Spode Blue Italian is our tea ware of choice
And cookies for tea this afternoon
My cutout cookies
cut with the turkey cookie cutter
(which I've never used before)
And tail "feathers" sprinkled with red and orange sugars
Not my idea
No, I found similar turkey cookies in Minnesota
Which made a perfect tea time treat one afternoon
when we visited last week
And I figured that they would be a new tradition
these Thanksgiving Eve Turkey Cookies
I knew I had a turkey cookie cutter
(one of those copper colored ones from the 50s -- perhaps it was Mother's -- I'm not sure
because I don't remember ever baking turkey cookies!)
I baked one batch and sent them off to Minnesota for the Grands.
Another batch today for tea.
I love the Eve days before the Holidays.
