Early on during the pandemic, the DoubleTree Cookes recipe was “revealed so bakers could create the warm, welcoming treat at home,” according to Hilton Newsroom.
Getting a DoubleTree Cookie (or three) has been one of the highlights of our stays at the chain’s properties. A couple of years back, I won a tasty prize from DoubleTree through an Instagram contest. Find out more about my prize here.
Last year, we had a not so typical Thanksgiving. Kim and I started out early by running in a 5 mile “Turkey Trot” in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. For dinner rather than stick to traditional holiday food we had Turkish food for turkey day!
This year we’ll be taking a little trip for Thanksgiving. We’re not heading anywhere glamorous or too exciting but we’ll be squeezing in an extra trip this year regardless.
This past Thanksgiving was definitely unique and different for a few reasons.
The #1 way it was different was that this was my first Thanksgiving as a Dad.
All experiences these days seem to be different (new or old) and better with Lucas around.
I am very thankful to have my amazing little boy in my life!
Kim and I started off Thanksgiving 2012 by running in the Prospect Park Track Club’s 5 Mile Turkey Trot. This was the longest run for both of us. It was a nice challenge and accomplishment to complete. We both were really happy with how we did and are now talking about trying to run a 10K (6.2 miles) in the future.
The race sold out with 2,500 registered participants. We were lucky to have beautiful weather in New York on Thanksgiving. We both felt great (and exhausted) after finishing the race.
Some relaxation was needed when we got home before eating our Thanksgiving dinner…
