Well as we start to wind down from the normal season and transition into our second season the weather seems to ramping up again. If you enjoy cooler weather this past season has been your year for experiencing the Cape. Not overly warm, and not overly rainy, some would say just about right. Me on the other hand could have used a few more days in the 80s and a few less cloudy days. I love the beach and I love being out in the sun. So as this second season starts I am hoping that we get more days of full sunshine and less of those cloudy days.

India is the birthplace of eggplant. But seldom do we see Indian varieties. In fact, many people assume that eggplant, which is actually a fruit not a vegetable, comes from the English who originally thought of eggplant as having an ornamental virtue rather than a culinary one. Its beauty is not to be under estimated but the numbers of ways eggplant can be prepared to eat are virtually endless especially during the summer months. And the more I explore this lovely fruit the more I appreciate the multicultural possibilities.
