November is always a whirlwind of activity. Isn’t it amazing that we literally spend days planning and shopping for one big meal. Yet that meal is such an important tradition for us as a country, connecting us to our roots at the very core. To imagine that hundreds of years ago the very first pilgrims set aside a day to give thanks and feast together, to celebrate a good harvest. Back then a good harvest was the difference between life and death, it meant that they could survive the winter. Yet, here we are today, living in abundance, and still taking the time to celebrate together and give thanks. Thanksgiving is for everyone, bringing families, friends, and country together for one day of chaos and food.
But even in this time of great abundance there are those that are hungry, suffering, or going without. It’s perfect that we transition straight from a celebration of thanks into the season of giving. Our November Highlight is the perfect example of giving, Kait is a 13 year old that bakes and sells cookies then donates her earnings to charity. Take a minute to read her story (below) and follow her on facebook and instagram. She’s absolutely inspirational.
We highlighted the Baker’s Pack in November, one of our most popular accessories. These additional tools make your Bosch mixer a joy to work with. Check out the blog-post (above) for specifications and instructions on using the Baker’s Pack. And remember – always use room temperature butter!
Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season is here, but that doesn’t mean the thankful part has to end. I say we continue with the thanks and up the giving! Happy December Ya’ll!
