Season's Harvest Cafe

The fun thing about living in Northwest Houston is we have the conveniences of the big city, with a few small town gems in the mix.

Season's Harvest Cafe is one of those gems.

Season's Harvest Cafe is a farm-to-table restaurant, serving whole foods that are in season and grown locally, using organic and hormone-free as much as possible. They are tucked away in precious little house off Grant Road, and offer a perfect place to meet friends or business associates for breakfast, lunch or coffee.

Their unique menus are posted on Facebook and change daily. I ordered the raw entrée selection of the day: Zucchini Linguini topped with raw Texas pecan and organic basil pesto which was served with a seasonal salad including home-grown sprouts, seeds, fruit, vegetables, and nuts, tossed in Raw Honey-Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing. OH MY was incredible! I had never ordered an entrée that was entirely raw. And check out the other two options for the day:

French Peasant Loaf Crusty French Baguette brushed with Olive Oil and filled with Organic Smoked Turkey Breast, thin slices of melted Provolone Cheese, a sprinkling of Organic Fresh Herbs, Organic Mesclun Salad Greens, Sautéed Sweet Onions, and freshly-ground black pepper
Served with choice of House Salad or Soup

Harvest Salad with Crumbled Goat Cheese
The season’s harvest of Herbs, Fruit, Home-grown Sprouts, Seeds, Greens, and Nuts topped with Crumbled Goat Cheese. Served with Balsamic House Dressing and Grilled Artisan Bread
-add Organic Smoked Turkey Breast for $2.50-

You are missing a blessing if you don't make it a point to drop by and at least have an afternoon treat. The have muffins, scones and cookies on display and a large selection of coffee and tea options.

Need directions? Google Map: 10609 Grant Rd, Building A, Houston, TX 77070 or call 281.807.9000.

They are open Tuesday-Saturday 9:00-2:30 pm for dine-in or carry out. And yes, Cypress Moms, they do offer a kids' menu. Bonus!

Donating That Candy

Ok, y'all....we've had over a week with all that candy. It's out of site, out of mind for your kids....but you still catch yourself stealing a piece here, a piece there.

Don't lie.

You've sampled your favorites and it's time to stop hiding in the pantry, eating just one more piece, and get that candy out of your house!

Need ideas?

1. Cypress Cares is collecting wrapped candy for our soldiers. There is a sweet gal in Coles Crossing that has a drop site. You can contact her here for directions.

2. Cypress Assistance Ministries is collecting candy for Christmas stockings for kiddos in our area. They are located at 11202 Huffmeister. Need more info? Click here.

More ideas to get the candy out?
