October was the Month of Eggplant. I like eggplant, but it's usually a "once every month or two" thing in our house rather than a "twice a week" thing.

Munchymom, where did you get the mozz cheese? I live in Pompano, but I've never heard of a local dairy! It must be close to the county line (Broward/Palm Beach) with a 426 phone exchange...

It came from the Wellington Whole Foods but I've seen it other places around town. The brand is Mozzarita.

Pizza and a beautiful beach with gorgeous blue ocean water.  Heavenly.

As the week winds down, I get into the "must use everything up" mode, because I know there's more coming tomorrow.

Looking at the angle that "poolside mimosa" was taken from, it appears you're IN the pool. Is this fair? Is this right? Speaking as someone who's looking out at frozen snow, I say it isn't.

Haha. It's all fair. I've seen seasons and they're over rated
Give me temperate weather year round. Boring to some paradise to others

The only thing I like about seasons are the crisp fall days and brilliant leaves, and maybe a fire in the fireplace. That's IT! (The fire's for ambiance, not really for heat!)

Love the pizza at the beach pic.

 

I like seasons, although I have not yet adapted to freezing temperatures and 30 mph winds. Give it time, though. Dog days and a little icy chill are necessary to fully appreciate spring and fall.

 

Looking forward to the remainder of your foodblog.

Last meal of the week:

Chicken sandwich with tomato, pickles, and barbecue sauce, and potato salad.

That was the last of the week's tomatoes, and the men of the household ate the remains of the broccoli and red peppers with some pasta for lunch. So we've eaten all the farm food for the week, and my refrigerator is ready to receive tomorrow's batch, plus the ingredients for my first hot-climate Thanksgiving.

 

Thanks all for following along.

Thanks for blogging this week!  And yes, I'd like to know your "first hot-climate Thanksgiving" plans also.

I can't bring myself to give up any of my favorites - turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie - even though they don't really fit with 80 degree temperatures. I'll have lots of sweet corn, so I might do a corn pudding or spoon bread. I'll have lots of tomatoes but I'm not sure where to fit them into the meal.

I am a 60 year-old who is a native southern Californian and every few years we have an unseasonable warm Thanksgiving in the 80s. The traditional Thanksgiving meal is still wonderful.

The weather doesn't matter when you have central air conditioning.

A page out my gardening grandpa's book: slice thickly, serve on a crystal plate with a sprinkle of sugar and a dab of Hellman's. Yum! (And ain't we lucky to have ripe tomatoes in November?)
