Halloween fare, Eat Drink Garden style…
The first time I made this kale dish was for a small dinner party. As I was tossing it all together one of my friends said, “Wow, it’s like all of my favorite things on one plate.”
Almost a month ago I believed I had stumbled upon an awesome discovery- organic butternut squash puree in a can. No more having to hack into, peel and roast a squash. Instead, you could just open the can, add some fresh ingredients and dinner is served.
Squashes can be intimating to cut, but you’ll have the best tasting meal when using the freshest ingredients.
We always travel to my family’s house for Thanksgiving, so I’ve never had true ownership of the holiday. Knowing this, I often host a festive dinner right before the Thanksgiving holiday for close friends here in Santa Barbara. No turkey, but fall fare straight from the garden and farmers market, and this year, seasoned with inspiration from our recent trip to Piedmont.
