Celebrate Thanksgiving with a Turkey Bowl

Thanksgiving and Football go hand in hand. Gameday Style wants to share a website with you that has fantastic party ideas to implement some football into your Thanksgiving get together, 
aside from all the football that will already be on the TV.

This "Turkey Bowl" party comes from, a website of party ideas and inspiration that make a get together personal and special.

An overview of the Turkey Bowl party from Cheryl Style:

Here's a fun and festive Thanksgiving you'll fall for: a holiday centered around Turkey Bowl, a friendly flag football game with family and friends, plus plenty of football on TV and a feast that'll make you want to shake your tail feathers! But this gathering adds a playful twist with some pluck. The buffet is set with bowls—some right side up to hold side dishes and some upside down to display food at various heights on the table. Even better, everyone eats their Thanksgiving meal from shallow bowls!
 After everyone is stuffed, flag football participants get award certificates for their stupendous play on the field. Guests are sent home with a bag of delicious roasted nuts bearing a tag that says, "Thankful for YOU."

All of the party how-tos are on Cheryl Style for you, right down to a timeline for the fete. Go check out for fantastic party ideas and organization..not just for Gameday or Thanksgiving, but for any of your occasions.

Save that Turkey! It's Gumbo time...

Life is so simple and delicious when you follow a formula such as this. Get your turkey going for gumbo while cleaning up after the feast on Thursday evening and you'll be all ready for Saturday and/or Sunday's tailgating or football-on-TV watching.   Garden and Gun tells us how. from Garden and Gun  magazine Day-After Gumbo Turn your Thursday bird into a Friday  Saturday feast If the day after Thanksgiving is your favorite food day of the year, then Justin Devillier, of  La Petite Grocery  in New Orleans, is your kind of chef. “Although leftovers ‘as is’ are good, turning them into another celebratory meal keeps the holiday eat fest going at my house,” he says. On Thanksgiving night, the chef covers the carved turkey carcass with water, and as the family party winds down, the roasted bones simmer away, forming a rich stock. The next morning, he adds aromatics and andouille, and stirs in a nice dark roux. “I like mine as dark as I can get it without burning it,” he
