Last Call: Did You Know that Thanksgiving Falls on the First Day of Hanukkah This Year?
Buzzfeed: It won’t happen for another 70,000 years, so get your Thanksgivukkah on with these recipes! (Speaking of, Jews, we came up with a brilliant sandwich for morning-after leftovers — turkey and cranberry sauce, served between two latkes. Eat your heart out, ramen burger.)
POLITICO: The DC insider publication (whose Morning Playbook is better than coffee) announced the creation of POLITICO Pro Agriculture, which tracks our nation’s food and agriculture policy at a super insider level. Concerned about the USDA’s ruling on GIPSA requirements and how the NBCA’s lobbying efforts shaped it? This is the place. (Also, shout out to Helena Bottemiller-Evich for joining the team!)
Eater: The Department of Health apparently shuttered Mission Chinese Food due to health code violations including a leak in the basement. Whatever, DOH, aren’t you furloughed right now or something?

The New York Times: Why is the Nacho Dorito the most enduring Dorito flavor? A breakdown.
