Augusoft’s Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

Our team is feeling a bit nostalgic from user summits past, now that we are back from Lake Buena Vista, FL, it made us think about a favorite Thanksgiving recipe. That’s right, user summits and our customers inspire us in many ways in addition to creating and maintaining a better Lumens.

One of Augusoft’s favorite holiday recipes was procured at the 2012 User Summit Customer Dinner at Zaytinya, a Mediterranean restaurant in Washington D.C. If you’re looking for a great recipe with a bit of Mediterranean flare, try one of our staff favorites this holiday!
