Sunday was a busy day here at the urban homestead.  I can’t divulge details or any photos pertaining to the filming due to a disclosure agreement but it has something to do with chefs, homegrown food and local foodies  The filming crew was here from 7 am and left just before 7 pm taking over 30 hours of film!

We really weren’t needed for most of the filming but thanks to a few friends who dropped by to help pass the time and pitch in when needed!

The episode should air on the Food Network in Spring.   Of course, being that we don’t have cable we’ll have to get one of our friends to tape it for us.

Our Living Room was turned into “MISSION CONTROL” for the Food Network. Julia and Jordanne look in on the action

The chefs in the kitchen need radishes so Jordanne and Sergio go pick it for them

Since most of the yard was “off limits” with camera guys running round and our home invaded by wires, monitors, lights and even more cameras, passing the time hanging with friends in the front yard.

    Look up the post from Dec 16, 2008 for the skillet granola recipe. I read the whole backlog of this blog one month instead of getting any library books. It’s okay if the Dervaes don’t have time to write a book. It’s all right here to read. What a blessing for us to have this inspiration and encouragement.

    And I love the picture of Sergio elbows deep in radishes. It’s a picture of abundance.
