Good 50º morning.
Yesterday we started off with a cloud cover... it blew away and the smoke from the fires moved in. We topped at 105º.

Interesting about the world's largest pumpkin....
Pumpkins grow very big and sometimes weigh more than a small car. The heaviest fruit ever grown was a giant pumpkin.
The world record heaviest pumpkin weighed in at 2624.6 pounds and was grown by MATHIAS WILLEMIJNS from Belgium and authenticated by the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC) in Ludwigsburg, Germany, on 9 October 2016.
The world record watermelon was pale in comparison at 350.5 pounds grown by Chris Kent of Sevierville, Tennessee, USA, as verified by the Commonwealth on 4 October 2013.
Grands Mini Pizzas
These mini pizzas are ready in 25 minutes, thanks to a tasty crust made from refrigerated biscuits.
1 16.3oz can Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits
1 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 3.5oz package sliced pepperoni
Press each biscuit into a 6" round. Place on 2 large or 3 small greased cookie sheets. Top each round with pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.
Bake at 375º for 10-15 minutes or until bottoms are deep golden brown and cheese is bubbly.
** Veggie lovers omit the pepperoni and cooked chopped onions, sliced mushrooms, and sliced red pepper in 1 T. olive oil about 5 minutes, until peppers are limp. Top each biscuit with pizza sauce, cheese, and vegetable mixture.
For Tropical Pizzas omit the pizza sauce and pepperoni. Top each biscuit with cheese, canned pineapple tidbits, diced green bell pepper, and sliced bacon or ham.
