While the Thanksgiving turkey may be the centerpiece of the meal, the side dishes are often the real favorite. However, if you want to try something new this year, consider one of these show-stopping Thanksgiving side dishes.

  • Bundt Pan Stuffing. While some people cook their stuffing inside the turkey, others prefer it out. And, we all know that the best part of the stuffing is the crunchy bits. This recipe has you bake the stuffing in a Bundt pan meaning more crunchy parts to go around.
  • Spinach Maria. This Tennessee favorite is a rich and creamy dish that takes creamed spinach to the next level with a big dose of cheese.
  • Green Bean Casserole Baked Potato. Combine two of your favorite side dishes into one. You’ll save room on your plate for some other favorites.
  • Cheese Stuffed Cornbread. Ordinary cornbread turns extraordinary when you add a thick layer of cheese in the middle.
  • Quinoa Salad with Roasted Squash. If you’re trying to find healthier alternatives this year, this quinoa salad is packed with fall flavors and is bursting with flavor.
  • Sweet Potato Bites. These little slices of heaven are almost like the Thanksgiving version of s’mores. Layer a large marshmallow on top of a slice of sweet potato, roast it, and top the whole thing off with a pecan.

What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes?

2016 Honda Pilot. The 2017 model will be the latest with Apple CarPlay.

After a complete redesign in 2016, buyers have fallen in love with the all-new third-generation Honda Pilot. Now, for 2017, the Pilot is the latest Honda with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology. In addition, it comes with a new fingerprint resistant touchscreen and more interior color options.

On the Pilot EX trim and above, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will come standard. This technology will allow drivers to connect their compatible smartphone and use select apps directly on the Pilot’s 8-inch touchscreen. Or with simple voice commands, make hands-free calls and find their favorite music.

Buyers will also be able to opt for a black interior on all models with White Diamond Pearl exterior paint. This combination was previously only available on the Elite trim. This new option adds a big dash of sophistication to the Pilot.

The third-generation Pilot is already making a name for itself and is turning heads wherever it goes. It has been named one of the “Best Cars for the Money” by U.S. News & World Report, and one of the “Best Family Cars of 2016” by KBB.com, Parents Magazine, and Edmunds.com.

The 2017 Honda Pilot is available now at Floyd Traylor Honda. Stop by today and take it out for a test drive.
