(Before It's News)

I can’t believe it’s already Friday. I have so much more to talk about, so be sure to tune in on Monday and Tuesday, even though I usually take all of Thanksgiving week off. Before I get to my round-up, I wanted to announcing a LEGIT giveaway that fits right in with my theme of JUST GET TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS ALREADY. Check this out: You can win everything you need to create the ultimate dinner party for ten, including a copy of How to Celebrate Everything, along with high-qual, super-fresh ingredients from HelloFresh, artisanal cocktails from Drizly, and $1000 towards hand-crafted tabletop decor from Etsy. YES. You read that right! The sweepstakes only runs until November 30, so enter today.

So what else?
.
Seven ways to prep for Thanksgiving right now. (I’ve already checked off #6.)
.
What a dip party looks like.
.
If I were the type to switch up the turkey, I’d be all over this Bourbon-and-Brown-Sugar-Glazed number.
.
Thirty-one Thanksgiving pies.
.
I wrote a new, downloadable Thanksgiving Mad Lib for Real Simple. (Book owners: You can just photocopy page 63, the original.) Put one on each place setting to get the gratitude juices flowin’.
.
.
Announcing the 2016 National Book Award WinnersMarchthe third in the Civil Rights trilogy written by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell won in the “Young People’s Literature” category; I also picked up finalist Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo because I am such a fan.
.
I admit it: I teared up watching The Gilmore Girls reunion trailer.
.
Are you guys following HONY’s series on Macomb County?
.
Read of the week: “I have no desire to be that person, who lets politics affect him so deeply he forgets the higher truths.”
.
Listen of the week: Lin-Manuel Miranda on Marc Maron’s WTF. (Warning: As usual, lots f-bombing.)
.
.
Here’s a pretty delicious looking leftover idea. (And don’t forget my Mini-Shepherd’s Pie if all else fails.)
.
If you need a good detox after all those pies and potatoes: This superfood-packed smoothie looks like a good option. (And can we talk about how cute Gemma is?)
.
Lastly, this is pretty cool: The New York Times is starting a new podcast with Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit, and longtime Friend of DALS. His show plans to explore how and why people change, and he wants to help solve problems that are keeping you up at night. In his words: “We’re looking for readers who are grappling with a complicated situation, and aren’t sure what to do. Ideally, you’d be open to letting us in on the process of trying to resolve it.  Maybe your spouse makes more money than you do, and it’s created a divide in your relationship. Or you’re an executive on the rise, and struggling with a management questions. Or you’re going to a family reunion, and are worried about how you’ll break through to your estranged sibling. Or you’re unhappy in your marriage, and not sure how to fix it.” Call 234-200-6115 and leave a voicemail, or send your questions and stories to podcaststories@nytimes.com. (Nothing will be used in the podcast unless they get your permission first.)

Have a good weekend.
