We used to love Football especially The Super Bowl, while I watch it for the commercials Brady and his Dad LOVED The game itself. Each year for the last 15 years we have had a Super Bowl Party and enjoyed time together as a family with lots of food and fun. But in 2016 we lost Brady’s Dad the morning after the Super Bowl. It was a shock to say the least and almost a year later it is almost as if it is a bad nightmare that we can’t wake up from. Brady has swore off of Football and Super Bowl parties as well as most of his family, but the show must go on, or so they say, so I wanted to share one of our favorite recipes from game day. Bob sure enjoyed these Football Cookies each year, but this year I’m not sure I will be able to muster up the courage it takes to make them. But I wanted to share them with you in case you needed a fun way to spend time with the kids or an easy snack to bring to the big game party near you.
