Happy Thanksgiving from All of Us at DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC


The lawyers and staff of DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!

As we did in October for Halloween, here are a few selected items to help get you in the right frame of mind for turkey and pumpkin pie.

When you have to bring a side but don't know what to cook...


Try chili-cheddar mashed potatoes. With a prep time of 15 minutes and a cook time of 10, this won't be too difficult.

When you get into an argument with your family about history...

We wrote about getting into the right frame of mind for turkey and pumpkin pie, but these weren't even on the menu during the first Thanksgiving - venison, not turkey, was a featured course.

And, according to History.com, Thanksgiving wasn't an official national holiday until Abe Lincoln proclaimed it so, during the Civil War, in 1863. The nation must have been in need of a morale boost.

When/if you're ready for football...

The NFL Thanksgiving match-ups include:

  • Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions (FOX)
  • Carolina Panthers at Dallas Cowboys (CBS)
  • Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (NBC)

Regarding the Bears-Packers game, Chris Wesseling writes that "the Bears will have an uphill battle to keep this one close for four quarters at the forbidding Lambeau Field."

(If you're an Arizona Cardinals fan, we play San Francisco at Levi's Stadium on Nov. 29.)
