Happy Thanksgiving from OXO (and our Last-Minute Tips)

Words admin

Although OXOnians may still be full from our Thanksgiving lunch on Tuesday, a tradition that brings the whole company together for a potluck-style feast, we’re trudging through belly cramps and tryptophan sleepiness, and heading to our own kitchens today for round two. Many of us are at home with family and friends, starting to put final touches on our Thanksgiving meals. Whether it’s roasting a whole bird the traditional way, trying a new energy-saving technique, spatchcocking, or spiralizing veggies for some side dishes, our homes are filled with the familiar sights of the holiday.

This year, we have a lot to be thankful for:

  • We are thankful to our editorial board for sparking great ideas for the blog.
  • We are thankful to our blog contributors who take those ideas and turn them into great posts.
  • We are thankful to Mia, our amazing photographer, who continues to do stunning work.
  • Most of all, we are thankful for our loyal, inquisitive, and thoughtful readers. Whether you’re brand new to us, or you’ve been following OXO for years, we’re so glad to finally have a homebase for all of us to share.

In the spirit of sharing, here are some of our favorite traditions this time of year:

  • Gracie on the Public Relations team always ends Thanksgiving night with a rousing game of Catchphrase, a sing-along of the Italian song Eh Cumpari
  • Jamie on the Food Storage team has a big traditional Thanksgiving meal for lunch, then a big traditional Korean meal for dinner.
  • Emily on the Brand Communications team always names her grilled turkeys that are injected with tons of flavor after an MLB player going through a steroid scandal – Barry Bonds the Turkey!
  • Jed on the Sales team adds a special touch to his sausage stuffing recipe: diced apples.
  • Laura on the Kitchen Electrics team has been making the same sweet potato praline casserole since she was 12. The recipe is from her very first cookbook, Emeril Lagasse’s kid-friendly cookbook, There’s a Chef in my Soup.
  • Veronica on the Brand Communications team’s family orders a whole roast pig from a Chinese restaurant instead of tackling a turkey.
  • Zoe on the Tools and Gadgets team adds extra, extra sausage to her family’s stuffing, which her grandma now hides before dinner because the rest of the family was picking pieces out of it before it made it to the table.

We hope your Thanksgiving is filled with delicious food, festive drinks and wonderful company!
