Thanksgiving is a time to gather with good friends and family and share a traditional meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green beans all smothered in gravy. But what about the people that you work with — your work family? You know, the people that you see every day and spend almost more time with than your own family. The Daily Meal staff hosted an early Thanksgiving feast in our kitchen last Friday — and we stuffed ourselves with all the classic fixings.
From a roast turkey to classic green bean casserole with crispy onions, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and squash, there was plenty to eat and to be thankful for. Drinks were poured and cocktails were mixed, and pie and cheesecake were sliced and eaten. The staff came together and brought in dishes, potluck style, for the whole office to enjoy — and we sure did!
At the end of the meal, the staff felt a greater sense of togetherness, which is important around the holidays. So, this holiday, don’t neglect the people that are closest to you — and sometimes that means the people that you work with.
