What goes better with Turkey than ...?

It's the most wonderful time of the year! And while Saxelby Cheesemongers acknowledges that Thanksgiving may be the most awesome holiday ever, we also know that all that cooking can be downright stressful. Between orchestrating the musical chairs of dishes in and out of too-tiny ovens, making sure the turkey gets basted when it should, and mastering the art of channel surfing from the Macy's parade to football and back again, there's a lot to keep track of.

That's why we've come up with a foolproof solution for all of your Thanksgiving needs. That's right, you guessed it, cheese! While chaos and mayhem reign in the kitchen, cheese can be your happy place. It doesn't talk back, it doesn't drink too much eggnog and start mouthing off to other family members, it just sits there quietly on the table, getting more ripe and tasty as the day goes on. It's content to be appetizer, dessert, or midnight snack, and in our humble opinion, goes pretty darn well with turkey.

This Thanksgiving, Saxelby Cheesemongers wants to say thanks to all our our friends and fellow cheeseheads! Just type in the code 'Thanks' when placing your order online, and get 15% off any Thanksgiving cheese selection.
