Happy Thanksgiving from your AssetWorks family!
Today, we’ll take a break from our “regular programming” and take some time to celebrate Thanksgiving with our AssetWorks family.
- The woman behind “Mary Had a Little Lamb” was responsible for making Thanksgiving a national holiday.
After years of petitions to multiple presidents, writer Sara Josepha Hale convinced President Abraham Lincoln to make Thanksgiving an official national holiday.
- There were no balloons in the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Rather, when the parade debuted in 1924, the event featured animals from the Central Park Zoo (the balloons joined the parade in 1927).
- Black Friday is the busiest day of the year for plumbers.
Extra guests plus a surplus of food take their toll on drains, garbage disposals, and toilets, resulting in a surge of post-Thanksgiving house calls, according to Roto-Rooter.
Eat hearty, my friends!
In honor of the upcoming holidays, our staff has pulled together a few of our AssetWorks Family favorite Thanksgiving recipes.
Sweet Potato Casserole: Business Development Representative Savannah Scott’s favorite dish is this sweet potato casserole recipe.
She notes: “My boyfriend LOVES it, and it’s generally a hit.”
Ramen Noodle Slaw:
Want a different take on a green vegetable at Thanksgiving this year?
Try Ramen Noodle Slaw out at your Thanksgiving gathering. The crunchy, tangy slaw is a fresh take on a familiar favorite.
Sticky Toffee Pudding:
If you’re looking to add a little British flair to your table, Rachel Novotny recommends serving Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert.
While the recipe and the toffee sauce require a few extra steps the buttery, delicious flavor make this decadent dessert worthwhile. (For an extra special touch, serve with vanilla ice cream.)
For the kids (or the kids at heart)
Peppermint Hot Cocoa
Nothing kicks off the Christmas season like a nice, warm cup of cocoa. Enjoy this tasty concoction as you slip slip into your post-turkey coma. (Pro tip: make an adult friendly version by adding espresso or schnapps… or both. We won’t judge.)
And finally, if you’re looking for that perfect glass of vino to perfectly compliment your dessert, check out this pie and wine paring infographic
