There are so many things I love about fall that it’s hard to condense it all down, but one thing I love for sure is football. My Hubs is a Texas Longhorns fan, and thus I have become one as well. My kids love football and play pretty much every day…some form of it anyhow since they are 5 and not quite 2. When Tid Bit turned 4, we had a football birthday party. The Hubs ran drills and the kids and the dads had a game. Mostly though as my Hubs said, it was more like “trying to herd cats.” You get the idea though…we love us some pigskin around here.
SO when I found these football shaped Oreos the other day…AND they were on sale buy on get one free, I obviously stocked up. (Random aside here, but since my Tid Bit is allergic to dairy, I thought I’d let you know that America’s favorite chocolate and cream cookie doesn’t contain a stitch of dairy. Yep…it’s true. A whole bunch of cocoa, sugar, and lard. Doesn’t that make you want to run out and eat a whole bag?!)
I thought I’d make the snack feel a little more special, so I set out to prettify it for when Tid Bit got home from school. I put some soymilk into a mason jar, used one of my favorite striped paper straws, found a cute green napkin, and laid out a couple of cookies. Easy Peasy. That tiny bit of extra effort though scored a huge touchdown with my fellas!
