A Bear Thanksgiving

A Bear Thanksgiving!

What is more important than family, traditions, holidays, and Sports! My husband is from Chicago, so we are into all the Chicago teams! This year Thanksgiving came on the same day as the Chicago Bears football game. We all donned ourselves in our favorite Bear attire and ate until our hearts content. We had all of the yummy usual's: Turkey, potatoes and gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie. My sister thrilled us with a new yummy recipe. I can see myself making that recipe for any occasion!

Cranberry Brie Bites

1 (8 ounce) round Brie cheese, rind removed
Pam cooking spray�1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup cranberry sauce or raspberry jam
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
sea salt to taste

Place Brie cheese in the freezer for 20 minutes. Oil a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
Roll 1 puff pastry sheet out into a 10x14-inch rectangle. Cut the sheet lengthwise into 4 even strips and crosswise into 6 even strips; there should be 24 squares. Separate and press them gently into the muffin cups.
Cut chilled Brie cheese into 24 pieces approximately 3/4-inch in size. Add 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce to each pastry-lined
muffin cup; press in 1 piece of Brie and top with 1 teaspoon of chopped walnuts. Sprinkle bites with sea salt. Chill for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 days. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake bites in the preheated oven
until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

After stuffing ourselves with the wonderful meal and watching
the Chicago Bears win., it was fun times of listening to a few
piano recitals and then off outside for a some tag football!

Some people’s Thanksgiving day might be a day of football, or
sharing a huge meal with your family and friends. But most
importantly it is a day of expressing our gratitude to God for His blessings throughout the year.

So from our Hudson and Heart Family to yours,
may your year be filled with love, laughter and good health.
