Must I really limit it to three?
I’m so excited about our November issue—we’ve loaded it with everything you need to celebrate Thanksgiving in true Southern style. I’ve dog-eared some of my favorite pages to help me figure out what I’m cooking this year, and since I’m still in the process of decorating my house I also plan on ordering up some of the entertaining essentials our editors curated from across the region. (I’ll be mining the SL Pinterest boards too; you’ll find hundreds more pics there to spark all kinds of holiday ideas.)
Read on to see the three things you don’t want to miss from the November issue:
The Black Bottom Pumpkin Pie: It’s impossible to choose a favorite recipe from our “Most Southern Thanksgiving Ever,” but if I had to make just one thing from this issue it would be this. When our Test Kitchen concocts something that instructs us to “sprinkle candy bars over chocolate mixture” you know it’s going to be over-the-top awesome.
50 Reasons We’re Thankful To Be Southern: Our Travel team scoured the region to sum up the South’s latest cultural bragging rights. Among the 50 ways we’re counting our blessings, check out Mockingbird Domestics, a new online collective of more than 50 artisans; learn about the Southern food revolution in Miami (and keep an eye out for Swine Southern Table); or be one of the first to know about the location of the premier Southern property for Hemingway Hotels & Resorts.
Southern Made Giveaway: Each week in November we’re giving away each of the entertaining essentials featured on this month’s Southern Made page, including the gorgeous pewter coffee service made in Somerville, Tennessee by Tennessee Pewter, and the custom ironwood carving set from Eden, Texas by Blackwell Knives. Visit the Southern Made Giveaway now so you don’t miss out on these freebies!
