5 Tips for Commuting to Work with Your Thanksgiving Potluck Contribution - Worksgiving
From The Kitchn - November 10, 2017

Office Thanksgiving is a great time to see your boss loosen up, catch up on gossip, and show off your sweet cooking skills! But first you have got to get your dish therein one piece!

Here are five tips for commuting to work with your Thanksgiving potluck contribution.

1. Maintain the temperature.

You probably wo not have access to an oven to heat up your dish, and the office fridge may be too full for cool dishes, so plan to leave home with your dish at serving temperature, and then keep it that way. Wrap your food in a few layers of dish towels, then stick the whole thing inside an insulated bag or cooler. I save those insulating bags from Blue Apron for this kind of thing, but you can find cheapie ones at the grocery store, too.

2. Tote it carefully.

You ca not carry a casserole in your arms for 10 blocks and two crowded subway transfers! You need a tote with long handles (to get over your shoulder or easily pick it up from between your feet) and a flat bottom. I am partial to the canvas L.L. Bean totes. If you do not have a bag with a flat bottom, create one by placing a cookie sheet on the bottom of a large bag, then placing your dish on top of it. Stuff any empty space with dish towels so it does not shift around.

3. Or put it on the floor.

4. Bring serving utensils.

5. Do not forget to bring a plastic bag.
