WFAE is no different than most workplaces. Mention that there’s food available in the break room and watch out for the stampede. One of the station’s traditions is a potluck lunch for Thanksgiving. Although it’s potluck, we put up a list to see who’s bringing what, and we drool all week in anticipation. If you have a signature dish, you’ll probably be drafted into making it. Our corporate development director inherited the duty to bring an onion-cheese bake when a co-worker left. More than 10 years later, she’s still encouraged to bring it. We have the usual Thanksgiving fare – ham, cranberries, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, etc. But we also have a few not so common dishes. This year it was custard-filled cornbread with honey butter, pineapple-cheddar bake and flan. The only drawback to our potluck lunch is working in the afternoon when we’d like to take a nap – just like Thanksgiving.
