I’m scratching my head over this. Plenty of ideas - no shortage of ideas. I thought this might be fun to talk about. Definitely homemade.
We have had trouble finding an auto mechanic we really trusted and liked. We’ve finally found someone about half an hour away but just a couple of miles from my sister-in-law. These guys are so good it’s worth the drive. For PBS fans, Motorweek’s Pat Goss has two shops here in Maryland. Pat’s partner Anthony Weber runs the store in Odenton MD and his team is outstanding. Anthony and I just figured out through LinkedIn that his mother used to work for me (five years about twenty years ago). I want to take something for the mechanics next time I stop by. This could be for anyone you just want to say “thank you” to.
Chocolate chip cookies are easy. Rice Krispies treats (although we don’t usually stock Rice Krispies). Homemade bread as toast points and homemade hummis. Guacamole, salsa, and chips. A tin of mac & cheese. In my particular case I want something the mechanics and front office can share and graze off of but in the more general thank you case casseroles like lasagna and tuna casserole are, to me, nice thank yous. My wife’s mother’s family refrigerator pickle is always a hit but fifteen pints seems like overkill. grin Deviled eggs. Pigs in a blanket. A cheese tray seems overkill for auto mechanics but is a good thank you.
If you want to say thank you what food comes to mind for you?
