Figs and prosciutto.
With eggs in the morning. No wait! On a cheeseburger. Also in a grilled cheese sandwich or was that a peanut butter sandwich... Ohhh this summer I had a bacon, spinach and apple salad that was fantastic. But coming up at work we have our Souper Bowl party and my Loaded Baked Potato soup rocks! Hmmm this is harder than I thought. I better hit Post or we'll be here all day.
Roasted red pepper sauce, pepperoni, homemade pickled sweet hot peppers, mozzarella, feta cheese and a sprinkling of garlic salt around the crust edge.
In one of your upcoming installments of Food For Change you may want to include the CSA I belong to From The Ground Up http://www.capitalareafoodbank.org/from-the-ground-up-at-clagett-farm/ They work in association with the Capital Area Food Bank and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Part of our CSA share fee goes to subsidize low income families shares as well as part of the harvest goes to the food bank.
Fig and Pig Pizza!
Can't decide between the Black and Brew and the Chocolate Bock. I wish i could each separately without buying the sampler.

Maryland Stuffed Ham on Christmas Day
Bacon wrapped figs at Jaleo in Washington, DC.
My husband used to make a Maryland Stuffed Ham for Christmas dinner every year. I wonder why he stopped? Hmmmm gotta get him back to doing that.
Nothing better than a grilled ham and cheese made with homemade bread and Miracle Whip.
Pizza quattro stagioni
White bread smeared with mayo and slices of tomato sandwich eaten over the sink since the juice runs down your arms and drips off your elbows.
I tend to go for the über easy freezer vegies. I go for putting away peppers of all kinds and chopped onions which don't require blanching.
If I have extra basil then I make a few trays of pesto cubes by putting the pesto in to ice cube trays and freezing then storing in freezer bags.
Wow! Now I have to say that I don't have enough eggplant. Everything in the post and most of the comments are going to keep me busy for quite awhile. Just a note - the picture of the crates with eggplant are from our pickup site at the farm. Our share is normally between 3-6 pounds of eggplant.
Carolyn thanks for the great post and also to all who have commented with additional ideas.
When the First Family find time to have as normal a family meal as they can muster - I would serve them Tunnel of Fudge cake. Easy but special family style dessert.
Elevation Burger at National Harbor just outside of DC.
