5 Simple Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving at Work

Why celebrate Thanksgiving at work?

Because embracing love, good food, and gratitude shouldn’t stop at the front door of your home.

Also, Thankgiving is always one of those holidays that seems to fly by too quicly. One minute you’re carving the turkey, the next you’re eating Thankgiving leftovers sandwiches at work. 

Not that those sandwiches aren’t amazing (because they are), but this year we wanted to explore a few special ways you can spread seasonal cheer beyond the family table.

After all, there is more to the holiday than simply devouring a delicious meal.

With that in mind, read on to find our top five simple tips for celebrating Thanksgiving at work.

Rainy Day Activities: 7 Things to Do in Your Kitchen

Fall has officially fallen in Seattle, and it’s time to consider a few rainy day activities – how best can we use all that time cooped up indoors? Though there’s a wide range of things you could do on a rainy day, our interests lie – as you might imagine – on things to do in the kitchen.

Of course, as a caterer we are a bit biased, but in our minds the kitchen is the centerpiece of any home. It is a place to create culinary masterpieces, converse with loved ones, and gather with friends.

So when we came up with the idea for a rainy day activities post, we figured: Why not center everything around the kitchen? Heaven knows, there’s plenty to do there.

Consumers across the U.S. are seeing rising prices in all aisles of the grocery store, and when they dine out.  This is largely due to a number of factors including: drought, disease, and even cartel influence; and  while some of these increases may only last a few months, others may have lasting effects into next year and beyond.
