• 11.24.10 // Thanksgiving at Wood Stone

There is much to be thankful for this time of year, and at Wood Stone we figure there’s no better way to celebrate that fact then to provide a veritable feast for our 80+ employees! Here’s the skinny on how this whole thing got started from David Morgan, one of our Engineers:

“A long, long time ago (it was the late fall of 2002 to be exact) I thought, “I wonder what a turkey would taste like cooked in one of our wonderful ovens.” Yes it was a fairly self serving thought but hey… So I went to Chef Frank and volunteered to bring in a bird if he would cook it up. The idea was that we could share it around with the other employees at lunchtime. He suggested our mini feast would be best if it was the last day of work before the Thanksgiving Holiday. A few other folks found out and brought some side dishes and Voila! …it was the first Wood Stone Thanksgiving. The next year I brought another turkey and Wood Stone added one as well and the side dish contributions grew. The third year Wood Stone got 3 turkeys and Dan J. and I each made 15 lbs of mashed potatoes to go with the heavenly gravy and stuffing Chefs Frank and Tim were creating. Well, year by year, our Thanksgiving Lunch has grown until this year on the 24th of November Wood Stone will cooked 12 turkeys and mixed up over 60 lbs of fluffy, mashed, garlic potatoes. The chefs did multiple HUGE pans of their world class stuffing and enough ‘secret recipe’ gravy to float a boat and Oh! did I mention the mountains of Green Bean casseroles, Squash, Yams, Corn, salads, cranberry sauce, pickles? For those with room there were also tables of pies, cheesecakes cookies and other amazing treats!!! Oh!…the humanity!!!! 🙂 Thank you Wood Stone for a wonderful time of sharing.”
