Last week at Boost, we celebrated Thanksgiving with our annual potluck. Boosters made their favorite holiday dishes and shared family traditions with the team. It was a delicious spread, and everyone needed a nap from the food coma that followed.

 

We are grateful that we get to share these traditions with such a close-knit tribe at Boost. Here are a few pictures from the day, as well as 2 cranberry Thanksgiving recipes to incorporate into your own holiday.
