10 Reasons We Don't Celebrate Halloween and three great alternatives

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

Sukkot is, among other things, a harvest festival.

October in CA means an incredibale selection of fruits & veggies: apples, pears, squash, beans, greens, nuts… and more!

We encourage you to bring either a vegetarian (or kosher meat) main dish, side dish, dessert, or drink.

Please RSVP info@urbanhomestead.org or 626.765.5704

See you in the sukkah!

Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Lavender Butter Sauce

Dinner | Recipes 8 Comments

I love our CSA. The Urban Homestead has a weekly pick-up of their Farmbox that is just FULL of goodness. It makes me happy every single week.  Local. Organic. Fresh. **swoon**

It’s always fun, too, to find new ways to use the produce.  Rather than buying food to match the meal plan, with the Farmbox, we are challenged with making meal plans to match the food!

When I get the box home, I see what I have to work with and see what I can come up with, letting nothing go to waste! Last week we were blessed with some delicious butternut squash and some lovely herbs, among other things.  Time for a Fall favorite: butternut squash gnocchi!  Served that up with some of the fresh yellow beans and it was delicious! The kids were licking the plates.  No really.  They were.  It wasn’t pretty.

(This was originally posted last November.  Certainly worth revisiting!  You don’t have to let the bills shoot up just because the temperatures go down!)

Of course, if you live in a climate where there are piles and piles of that white stuff, you may still have to blast your furnace.  But, maybe you could turn it down a notch or two?  Every little bit helps, right?

I love Thanksgiving!  Seriously, I do.  I love the smell of it and my family gathered around the kitchen.  My girls start talking about it several months before, day dreaming of all the yummy goodness.  I don’t blame them.  It’s just the best. Read More
