Sunburn — The morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics.

As Thanksgiving fast approaches, it may be hard for the #FlaPol crowd to stay focused.
To be honest, we’re already dreaming of maple-meringue sweet potato casserole. Mmmm…
But there’s one more week of committee meetings before turkey day.
That means one more week of lawmakers talking child marriages, Confederate statues, underground power lines, guns, immigration, the opioid epidemic … and we’re sure a certain senator from Clearwater will be in the news again.
If you don’t want to cook, Fox News helpfully reminds us that “Cracker Barrel’s classic country-style cooking can be brought home for the holidays – with 24 hours notice.”
Whole Foods also will cook a whole spread for you, starting at $79.99, with the deadline to order on Nov. 19.
Of course, if you want to go fast casual, try Boston Market, which offers a “Basic Thanksgiving Meal” and “Complete Thanksgiving Meal,” which includes one whole roasted turkey. The meals start at $99.99, also with a Nov. 19 deadline to order.
In the meantime, did we mention our apple-walnut dressing? Nom nom.
P.S. Don’t forget that help is almost certainly needed at many local churches and shelters on Thanksgiving Day.
In Tallahassee, the Community Thanksgiving Celebration will be held at Lake Ella, and volunteers still are needed to help serve Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 23 at the American Legion Post.
The deadline to sign up deadline is this Tuesday.
