Pumpkin spice always takes the seasonal spotlight, but north Texas harvests a much fuller cornucopia than just the gourds’ popular powder. While pumpkin patches are as ubiquitous as Lennar’s new homes for sale throughout DFW, so are local flavors from local sources.
In the fall, the area’s farms specialize in beets, turnips, baby arugula and leeks, among others. Two crops in particular — cilantro and pecans — not only grow close to home, they’re close to the hearths and hearts of every Texan.
Sure, Bon Appétit named Dallas 2019’s “Restaurant City of the Year,” but now more than ever is the ideal time to try home-cooked seasonal dishes. Since Everything’s Included® in Lennar’s new homes for sale in Dallas, TX, chef-worthy kitchens make the cooking easier.
In Lennar’s Sutton Fields community, whose collection of six floorplans showcase sophisticated new homes for sale in Celina, TX, kitchens are appointed with gas ranges for ultimate cooking control, as well as gourmet-quality granite or quartz countertops.
So, where to find ingredients for local autumnal specialties? Take the family to Friday Night Market on the Square in Celina’s historic center.
There, you’ll find fresh seasonal veggies and fruit, crafts, honey, breads and even homegrown live music. Gather the makin’s for pumpkin chili, a vegetarian (and contemporary) take on Texas’s most renowned dish — although you’d have to remove the beans and, well, the vegetables to make the gen-u-wine version of the state’s official dish.
As for beef, nothing tops Fort Worth. Lennar’s Creekside at Colleyville is situated only about 17 miles from the iconic Fort Worth Stockyards. Those new homes for sale in Colleyville, TX boast kitchens with gourmet features, like oversized kitchen islands and large pantries to store your favorite essentials.
Now for dessert. Pe-CAHN or PEA-can, the fruit ripens on area trees from early October through the first week of December. “Pecans are a Southern staple, but Texas takes it to a whole other level,” Southern Living says of the state pie of Texas. Here’s their recipe.
These dishes get gobbled up fast. So do Lennar homes. In fact, homebuying opportunities at Creekside and Lennar’s Waterbrook community are going as quickly as sweet slices of pie or tasty bowls of red.
With new homes for sale in Argyle, TX, Waterbrook lies just 2.5 miles from I-35W, offering outstanding access to all the local flavors you’ll need to fall for all the tastes of Texas.
