Up early to get my eggplant parmesan started for lunch today. When I saw the last of the fresh eggplant of the season at market yesterday I wanted to try this dish out. It looked quick and easy and it was except that I doubled it so that was a lot of scraping eggplant from the shells. I omitted the bread crumbs and actually mixed the parmesan cheese into the eggplant/onion/spice mixture after it was browned.  It was very good and all us ladies liked it but the men were not so sold on eggplant !!

Also if you try this it is better to cook the shells in the microwave about 6 minutes before stuffing them. I don't think it would get done in the 30 minutes if you didn't do this.
Everyone made it to lunch except #2 son who was golfing.
To go with the eggplant we had pot roast with potatoes and carrots, corn and fresh green beans I bought at the flea market Wednesday and a big cake of corn bread, yum yum !!
Everyone had a busy afternoon to get to so it was a short social time after we ate.
Hubbie and I painted our "trunk or treat" project for this year.
Hubbie blew leaves all evening to get them cleared off the lawn before it rains. It has been party cloudy all day today and the next couple days have a 20% chance of rain.
#2 son came in late this evening and said he had been golfing at Mt. Mitchell today. He said they drove the parkway there and back and the leaf color was really pretty.
He looked on the computer for houses and did find one to go look at.
With a non-eventful day as this it is a good time to finish the decade pics for this month. These are the "unknowns" for the month of October.

These next three pictures were taken at the old Edneyville school house.

This has been a nice Sunday afternoon to relax and enjoy a warm, mid 60's, fall day. I even sat out in the outside patio and watched the sun go down this evening.
Thanking God for a wonderful Sunday and a touching church service this morning.
Good Night and God Bless.

I love eggplant parmesan but the hubby won't touch it. It must be "guy thing" about eggplant. We had some snow flurries the other night but nothing stayed on the ground. Today is just cloudy, windy and cold. Enjoy your day and God's blessings to you and your family.
