We Are Closed Today, but they're happy in Canada

All six locations of the Des Moines Public Library are CLOSED on Monday, October 10 for a Staff Inservice Day.  On the other hand, today is Thanksgiving in Canada.  So if you lived in Quebec you'd be sitting around a table eating Pissaladieres, tarts stuffed with onions, olives and anchovies.  Pay attention to your food when eating because you do not want these to sneak up on you.  Gougeres, home-made cheese puffs.  Yum.  Eat them while they're still warm.  Roasted Cauliflower Soup, not sure you'd like this?  The presence of lots of garlic and heavy cream might change your mind.  They're French, they're Canadian, and just like us they enjoy a big heavy meal on Thanksgiving. Good thing our Thanksgiving is coming up soon.  It will keep me from obsessing over the Gougeres.

I saw it was Thanksgiving in Canada, too(on the calendar)! I would like some Gougeres, too.
