Check out Miranda Lambert on the November issue of ‘Good Housekeeping.’ Miranda talks about her childhood, life in the public eye, and all that she’s thankful for. With the holidays quickly approaching, Miranda fully intends to enjoy family even though their schedules may make it a challenge.
“Blake will be in L.A. working for The Voice,” she says. “So I’ll be buying pumpkins and hay bales somewhere in that crazy city and putting them on the porch. For me, that’s how the holidays begin.”
“We’re real traditional,” Lambert says. “Football, turkey, and stuffing. Blake’s mom makes ham and the best baked beans ever. My dad’s been deep-frying the turkey, which is sometimes wild turkey, because we hunt.”I do the green bean casserole, with cream of mushroom soup and fried onions on the top, and a sweet potato casserole,” she says.
And although tradition points to pumpkin pie, Miranda always fixes Blake’s favorite…peanut butter pie.
