OK. So I've been on a big-time fitness kick for the past 5 months. Exercising all the time, including running 5Ks every weekend. I'm signed up for an 8K (5 miles) on Thanksgiving morning, but I'm responsible for cooking the meal. I'm an early riser, so no problem at all waking up at 4 or 5 AM. But from about 8AM - 10AM, I'll be AWOL. Any thoughts about preparation? Can I make the stuffing the night before? What else can I do in advance? I just don't want to get caught short.
Hi, folks: I'll be stopping in Roanoke, VA on my way to my niece's wedding in early April. I'll be traveling alone, and that's the halfway point. Curious about a good place for dinner that night. I'm a burger-and-beer kind of guy, but I want local flavor, maybe barbecue. Not looking for a white tablecloth place, but rather a local joint with character. Any suggestions?
I work for a national company that employs more than 20,000 people. My department is tasked with finding a great employee gift for the summer.
In the past, we've sent steaks and ice cream (people can go online and place their order to arrive when they want it). This year we want to try something different.
Any ideas? Some thoughts:
1. Cost (including shipping) can't exceed $75 each.
2. Need to have options for kosher, vegetarian, etc diets
3. The company needs to be big enough to handle thousands of orders at once.
4. The population skews young--most employees are 40 or younger.
