Home Made will be CLOSED for Thanksgiving! You probably already anticipated that but I thought I’d go ahead and remind you.
I’ll be enjoying a hearty meal with my extended family (all 25+ of us!). This year, I was assigned to make a vegetarian stuffing. Naturally, I chose a recipe for a savory bread pudding from the latest Martha Stewart Living magazine. Because bread pudding is kinda like a stuffing but with lots of eggs and cream. Chef’s interpretation, right?
While I am excited to eat some good food and spend time with family, I also have been thinking about how much I have to be grateful for. Like, this new life I’ve created with Home Made and the community of people I have found (or who have found me)–friends, family, neighbors, customers, other local businesses, YOU. (:
On Friday, we’ll get back to our usual 11AM – 6PM schedule–there will be none of that opening at 3AM stuff here!
As you kick start your holiday shopping, the 3/50 Project reminds us how we can impact our local economy by buying from local, independent shops:
- Independent local merchants return 68% of their revenue to the community.
- National chain and big box stores return between 13 – 43%.
- The return from out-of-town websites is ZERO.
