November Living Arrives
It seems like the fourth quarter issues of Martha Stewart Living are arriving at a fast pace. The November issue was on my doorstep this afternoon. I've always considered the November issue to be the kick-off to the holiday season and it never disappoints me.
The beautiful issue (again, noticeably thicker than issues earlier in the year!) is full of wonderful articles that will not only inspire your homemade Thanksgiving; but serve as 'comfort reading' as the weather begins to cool down and we spend more time inside.
Here's a little bit of what you'll find in this issue:
Breakfast for a Bunch: Just plan ahead and scale up with crowd-ready dishes like baked french toast or a delicious yogurt parfait with granola, raspberries and candied ginger.
Welcome All: Make extra room for family and friends this holiday season with affordable accessories and MSL's simple strategies so more can be merrier!
Harvest Pies: Refined or rustic, make the most out of the season's apples, pears, and quinces with delicious recipes for Thanksgiving desserts. With two recipes for every fruit, there are twice as many ways to indulge in fall's sweetest flavors.
Branching Out: Remake the traditional family tree. Try celebrating your heritage with one of the six striking ideas found within the pages of this issue. Photos, silhouettes, and even baby spoons result in displays as original as your relatives!
A nice touch for the month of November is a special pet section. Flip the magazine over and you'll find another full cover with Martha's Chow, GK grinning at you. MSL devotes a special section of the magazine to man's best friend, including good things and great finds for the dog in your life, along with party ideas for your pets, cozy collars, leashes and beds. Plus, pet questions are answered by Marc Marrone in "Ask the PetKeeper."
