The ‘Other’ Thanksgiving

Last updated on November 26, 2010 by Liza Hawkins

Every year at work my small office has its own Thanksgiving, potluck-style. We try to bring dishes that aren’t traditional to a normal Thanksgiving dinner. Wouldn’t want to get our fill before Thursday even has a chance to happen. That would be, well, unfortunate.

The only staple to our lunch is a smoked turkey that my boss orders from Texas each year, then we all fill in the odds and ends in sides and spend about two hours chatting and eating. It’s really a good time and I’m thankful to have co-workers that truly are good company.

I think the highlight of this year’s lunch was a homemade cherry pie that could very nearly knock your socks off – crust flaky and light, almost gooey under the pie filling. Real cherries instead of that odd canned cherry goo you find in most pies. The right amount of sweet, the perfect amount of tart. Delicious!
