Thanksgiving Seems Early

Fortunately we’re going
to Joe’s house
and taking a Caesar salad
with Lemon-Sage Fritters
Masquerading as Croutons.

Joe’s a great cook.
Instead of Turkey,
he’s doing Beef Wellington.
He says he doesn’t want to cook too much,
but for an Italian?
Impossible.

Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 22.
And then weirdly,
we have 
another Thursday in November.

Does that mean I have more time
to get ready for Christmas
or just
 another week of Holiday madness?
