Thanksgiving dinner requires folks in kitchens everywhere to dig deep, scrub furiously, organize efficiently, and work hard. The pleasure we enjoy at the table cannot be accomplished without continuous dish and pot washing in the kitchen. Volunteer dishwashers don't just lend a hand. They figure out ways to cut through the mountains of pans, rivers of grease, stacks of plates, and piles of cutlery so that we can put them back into use and continue cooking and serving the meal.
Be thankful for those those kitchen helpers. They make a big difference in your world. And if you're not the one cooking, take a few moments to step back from admiring the Spatchcocked turkeys and slow roasted pork shoulders to lend a hand in the kitchen where it can do the most good. Cheerful dishwashers make the culinary world a better place. We are thankful for them and all of our loved ones, friends, readers, eaters, and fellow kitchen enthusiasts this Thanksgiving Day.
