Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Dates ~ To Remember

Last Sukkot someone served a simple but delicious treat on the community meal table. Hailey, Elijah and I all "lit up" when we tried it and it is so easy to remember!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Dates

Slit your date in half longways (like a boat), but not all the way through, remove the pit if it's not pitted. Shmear a glob of cream cheese in the center. If you really wanted to make it fany you could shave some dark chocolate on top. (But I never go to the trouble they are SO yummy this way!)

We also like to have dates on our Passover Table (with other Middle Eastern regional foods), so I thought I would share this little "trick" in case you might like to try it for something new. Enjoy!

This is one of our favorites but we hardly ever do it. Coming from the Southern California desert area, and Indio being the date capital of the U.S., we've tried a lot of date goodies. Something I created was a spin on cream cheese and dates: goat cheese, finely chopped pecans and a little maple syrup blended in the food processor then spread inside the dates. Heaven.
